History of Change A Light Day
Change A Light Day was first commemorated in the year 2005 by First Lady Glenna Fletcher. It is an annual occurrence that is celebrated on the first Sunday of October. The aim of the celebration is to save energy & money and lower greenhouse gas emissions by changing one bulb. The First Lady had joined with the federal government and the ENERGY STAR partners from across the country to celebrate this day. The energy-saving light bulbs are more efficient & cheaper, and they last longer when compared to conventional light bulbs. Switching to energy-efficient light bulbs will preserve energy resources and protect the environment. Take one small energy-saving measure on this day inside your house. Replacing one light bulb in your house will certainly reduce your electric bill and help you reduce your carbon foot.
