This is very cool. Blue Planet Foundation ran a word-of-mouth campaign that saved Molokai $6.5 Million! This is a great example of how word-of mouth marketing can make the world a better (and greener) place. Check out these stats:
The residents save $200 per swap, based on the life of the bulb. Do that calculation during this three-month engagement with the community and this translates to a savings of 17 gigawatt-hours of electricity. What's more, it prevents more than 16,000 tons of carbon dioxide from ever being emitted.
Even more compelling:
Based on a survey from 300 homes, 60% of participants exchanged bulbs and reported a decrease in their energy bill (about $10 a month). Each participant swapped an average of 15 bulbs. Nearly 90% of the participants felt that the program was effective.
