By changing one incandescent light bulb to a compact fluorescent, a household can save money on energy bills while reducing carbon emissions that negatively affect the environment. Groundwork Denver has swapped almost 10,000 light bulbs in the past three years, supporting its mission to improve the environment while fostering community involvement.
As part of Groundwork Denver’s Porch Bulb Project, volunteers travel door-to-door, offering to exchange incandescent front-porch light bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs. The initiative saves participants money and helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions while also serving as a simple outreach gesture to help elderly and low-income residents in the community. Groundwork Denver volunteers use the opportunity to talk to community members about other energy-saving steps they can take, including free weatherization, recycling, and other measures.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help low-income Denver residents lower their energy bills and reduce greenhouse-gas emissions. If G-Team members raise $400, then Groundwork Denver can provide 80 households with a compact fluorescent porch light bulb. Every additional $10 raised will be used to donate two more fluorescent porch lights to low-income Denver households. All donations up to $400 will be matched by All Tucked Insulation.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100% off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
