Groovebulb Joins World Wildlife Fund’s Earth Hour 2013

March 21, 2013

Groovebulb joins World Wildlife Fund's Earth Hour 2013This Saturday, March 21, is World Wildlife Fund’s (WWF) Earth Hour 2013. It’s an important day where people all over the world turn off their lights for one hour on the same day showing support in saving the planet’s resources. This year, Groovebulb is joining WWF in its efforts, and has become the official lightbulb of the hour.

Groovebulb uses the latest in LED technology creating low-energy, high-performance light solutions for homes. LED bulbs use a fraction of power compared to regular ones, meaning you can save up to 85 percent on your electric and energy bills. These LED bulbs also contain zero toxins or chemicals, can be recycled and last at least 25 years.

It’s great to see an eco-lighting company supporting Earth Hour. The event wants everyone to take part, and here’s why.

“It’s a crucial time as decisions are being taken now that will shape our energy system and climate for decades to come,” the website reads. “In 2013, we want the government to commit to making our electricity system virtually carbon-free by 2030. The sooner the government throws more weight behind renewable energy the better for all of us – financially, environmentally.”

The event first started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia where 2.2 million individuals and more than 2,000 businesses “switched off” their lights. Now, 152 countries and 6,950 towns and cities across the globe participate.

If you’re looking to make a difference, then be sure to join Groovebulb and WWF this Saturday at 8:30 p.m. Turning your lights off can really make a difference!
