Help 350NYC lessen the threat of climate change and help those in need in your community! 

Lighting the Way! funds will be used to provde energy efficient LED light bulbs to an 11 story residence for low income seniors (167 units) in NYC.

Your donation will not only cut carbon emissions, which  are dangerous to our health and the health of our planet, but  help reduce our fellow New Yorkers' energy bills.


Benefits of LEDs:

Lighting consumes 22 percent of the electricity produced in the United States (US Department of Energy). There's no easier path to lessen our over-consumption of energy and save money than switching to LED (Light-Emitting Diode) bulbs. 

LEDs have a long lifespan. The US Department of Energy rates LEDs as lasting 35,000-50,000 hours as compared to about 10,000 hours for CFL (Compact Fluorescent Light) bulbs and 1,000 hours for a  regular incandescent bulb!

LEDs generate no heat, so they help reduce AC costs as well during summer months.

LEDs are mercury free, unlike CFLs.

If every New Yorker switched just one CFL bulb to a LED bulb, we would collectively cut over 125 million pounds of carbon emissions per year in NYC.  Imagine how much carbon is saved switching from one incandescent bulb to energy efficient LEDs!

Together we are Lighting the Way! to stop climate change!
