Washington Post

I feel like the Washington Post must have a new employee with a lighting background ~ there have been 2 articles in less than a week that I think are worth mentioning here!

First, in Thursday's Local Living section was this article with the tag line "Is you kitchen glaring at you? You don't have to put up with those looks anymore. Innovations in lighting can make the room glow warmly."

Then in today's Style section, in the Kids Post area, they had a cute article about the Girl Scouts campaign to change 63,000 light bulbs from incandescent to CFL:

They say that if every home in America replaced just one incandescent bulb a year with an energy-saving variety, it would cut down on so much pollution that it would be like taking 800,000 cars off the road. And if every local Girl Scout replaced just one light bulb, those homes would save nearly $300,000 a year in energy costs ($4.76 per house). Pretty amazing numbers!
