Isn't this picture so funny?! Funny & true.
Lighting is responsible for about 11 percent of a home's energy bill. With the average American home spending near $2000 / year on energy (Source: U.S. EPA and ENERGY STAR), that's $220 a year that we spend just flicking on (or forgetting to flick off) those light switches!
I can think of quite a few things I would buy with that $220 right now: these jeans, this top in flame & spciy gold, these sunglasses, a fantastic dinner here, a 1/2 case of this syrah / grenache blend. My lists could go on...
What would you spend your extra $220 on?! Are you good about turning lights off when you leave a room?
Happy Monday, lovelies.
Wishing you all an earth conscious week!
