Saving the Planet One Story at a Time
menu +


A few years ago, Stuart Hickox came across a statistic on the Internet that made him realize that if everyone made a small change, the aggregate effect would be very large and for the better:

“If every American home replaced just one light with a light that’s earned the ENERGY STAR, we would save enough energy to light 3 million homes for a year, save about $600 million in annual energy costs, and prevent 9 billion pounds of greenhouse gas emissions per year, equivalent to those from about 800,000 cars.”


He shared this statistic with friends and family, and asked them a question:

“How hard can it be to get everyone to change one light bulb?”

This question became a call to action and One Change was formed. Learn more about them and Stuart’s efforts by reading our blog post from yesterday.
