ccfl main 300x198 Challenge: See the World in A Greener LightHave you ever purchased a CFL? Recycled an aluminum can? Turned off the water while you brush your teeth?

We’re all familiar with basic sustainability guidelines, but when it comes to just how much of a difference one person can make, things get murky.

We’d like to start a dialogue about seeing the world in a greener light. We want to hear your ideas – even if they’re not related to lighting at all. Do you set your thermostat a few degrees lower in the winter? Are you a designer that recommends eco-friendly products to clients? Tweet your answers and ideas to #agreenerlight. Here’s one of ours:

We launched a new section of our website dedicated to the A Greener Light cause. If you’re not on Twitter, you can leave a comment there!

Here’s a thought for the day:

In the lighting industry, adoption of fluorescent and LED technologies is rapidly growing in the United States. That’s good news, considering that the U.S. is responsible for 20% of electricity used for lighting in the world – even though we only make up about 4.5% of the global population. Fluorescent and LED light sources are both great solutions for lowering energy consumption and CO2 emissions.
