Tis the Season for LED!

December is almost here which means the holiday light exchange is just around the corner.

Tomorrow, Cool California challenge participants of Chula Vista will be given the opportunity to exchange up to two incandescent holiday lights for cool, new, energy efficient, LED light strands!

LED holiday lights are a great way to stay safe this festive season as well as save money on your electric bill. SDG&E says that by using LED lighting, customers will be able to save up to 90% in holiday lighting costs! The holiday season can get quite pricey so why not try and save money when you can?!

It may be the holidays, but you can still be GREEN!

Hello Chula Vista!

Are you or a company you know of holding any sustainable events in the near future?
Maybe your community is having an event to encourage sustainable behavior?

If so…please let me know! I would love to publicize your event, and encourage others to get involved.

In the mean time, do you have old, energy sucking, incandescent holiday light strings that you would just love to get rid of? I thought so. Well great news! Chula Vista is holding an LED light exchange on December 1st from 12 to 4 pm at Memorial Park.

Yes, YES! I agree with you.

YES! and its 50 scientifically proven ways to be persuasive seem pretty accurate to me. It is interesting to read about what is physiologically going in our heads that leads to our actions. I must admit that some of the actions described that we do in response to postings, I didn’t want to admit to. However, after taking a step back and observing my actions, I noticed that a lot of my actions are influenced by the way something is presented and by the action of others.

Chula Vista

Chula Vista I commend you! I think it is awesome to see a city in Southern California making environmentally friendly improvements. It is the 21st century, and it is about time we start worrying about the future!
I am all for the implantation of bike lanes and making any city a biking community. I think it is fantastic to see Chula Vista encouraging biking as an alternate mode of transportation. Biking is a great way to commute and stay healthy. The more bikers on the road the better!

I am passionate about the environment and want to educate my peers about the consequences of our carbon footprint. I would love to study abroad or help out in research projects in the tropical rainforests of Brazil or Costa Rica before I graduate.
