You may have noticed recent news that Home Depot will be providing free, in-store recycling of CFLs at all of its U.S. stores. But buried in that story is another interesting factoid — a tidbit of information in the likes of plucking the low hanging fruit. Home Depot announced that they will be switching to CFLs at all U.S. Light Fixture Showrooms and expect to save roughly $16 million in annual energy costs.
This news isn’t all that sexy, but it’s important. Make the switch, if you haven’t already and stop throwing money out the window. With the low hanging fruit, it’s true: money grows on trees!
