Step 5: Talk to retailers

Last week you contacted lightbulb manufactures. Good job and thanks! But manufactures are only half of the lightbulb sales equation. Stores are the other half. Talk to your local lightbulb seller. Thank them for selling Compact Fluorescent Lightbulbs (CFLs), and ask them to take the energy wasting bulbs off their shelves.

Less than 10 percent of the energy used by incandescent lightbulbs is converted into light - the rest is turned into heat. Over 90 percent waste! It's like selling a defective product.

p.s. It's important for us to hear what retailers are telling people, so please report back afterwards. Thanks.
