ActBlue Now Acting Green

082307141600As a partisan Democratic outfit, we at ActBlue are aware of the science behind Global Climate Change. We also recognize that as we grow as an organization, we’ll naturally consume more resources and energy.

As such, we’re trying to do our part as we fix up our office to reduce our consumption. Today, we got in our first shipment of dimmable CFL bulbs. Running at 23 watts (equivalent to a 90 watt incandescent bulb) these new lights have six time the lifespan with one fourth of the energy usage and will pay themselves off in energy savings in just under a year.

We’re not changing our name to ActGreen but at least we can do so in practice around the office.
