    Hawaii: What you can do

    Hawaii is one of the featured locations in 24 Hours of Reality. Once you learn how the reality of climate change is impacting Hawaii, here’s how you can help.

    The Climate Reality Project has partnered with the Blue Planet Foundation, a local nonprofitorganization committed to ending the use of fossil fuels on Earth, starting in Hawaii. Blue Planet’s goals are simple: energy security, economic growth, job creation, environmental protection, and a better quality of life for Hawaii residents.

    We invite you to ask your schools and community organizations to participate in Blue Planet’s 100,000 Better Bulbs Blitz, a light bulb exchange that will take place during October — National Energy Awareness Month. Compact fluorescent (CFL) and LED light bulbs are more efficient than incandescent bulbs — they need less electricity to produce the same amount of light. Blue Planet will supply the CFLs and pay $0.40 for each incandescent bulb replaced. That’s a way to reward your group for teaching residents about energy efficiency and reducing Hawaii's dependence on imported fossil fuels.

    To learn more, visit the 100,000 Better Bulbs Blitz page here or email cflexchange@blueplanetfoundation.org.
