The key word for me in that description is practical. I continually consume information about global warming, greenhouse gases and all the other buzzword-compliant environmental topics but hardly any of them tell me what I can do now – today – to really make a difference without my having to do my own research.
That’s why I like this show. Each episode (well, there’s only one, so far 😉 ) will provide a simple tip for helping you “go green” (or at least be green-er).
The first episode explains how you can use Compact Fluorescent Bulbs (CFLs) to reduce your electricity usage, produce fewer greenhouse gases and reduce the amount of mercury that is a byproduct of your power consumption.
Thanks to Real World Green, my wife and I just bought a four-pack of CFLs at Home Depot for our porch lights. From now on each time a bulb dies in our house we’re going to replace it with a CFL. How cool is that? Check it out below and at RealWorldGreen.com.
