The Greening Project

70 incandescent lights. I counted them myself. I never would have guessed there were that many in my parents' house, but there are. 70 wasteful, damaging, outmoded and irresponsible incandescent light bulbs screwed into the sockets of our home. 70 bulbs burning fossil fuels and wasting money.
So McBone is going green. We're starting by making sure that as many incandescent lights as possible are replaced with an efficient, long lasting compact florescent light bulb (cfl), which uses 60% less energy than a regular bulb but produces the same amount of light.
We have one world to live in. One planet to pass on to our children. Our government has been negligent when it comes to global warming, but we don't have to be. There's so much we can do at home that will help keep the earth clean. Why not take this simple step? Your energy bill will go down and so will toxic carbon emissions. Find out more about cfls from the Energy Federation.

Those florescent bulbs contain mercury. So make sure you recycle them and don’t just throw them into the landfill.
