Looking for a free and easy way to take climate action?
The Town of Vail has partnered with the Climate Action Collaborative and Eagle County Government to host an LED bulb swap at Vail Public Library the entire month of March. All Eagle County residents are invited to save money and cut climate pollution by exchanging two inefficient old-tech lightbulbs for two high-efficiency LEDs.
Each resident is encouraged to bring in two incandescent or compact-florescent bulbs and exchange them for two LED bulbs free of charge at the Vail Public Library anytime during regular hours of operation.
The LED lightbulbs produce a warm white light and are dimmable, so they are ideal for living room lamps and kitchens. Replacing two LED bulbs saves $16 per year on electric bills and cuts 230 pounds of air pollution. Switching to LED lighting is one of the easiest and lowest-cost ways to reduce air pollution.
