10 x 10 x 10 = 800,000
Sunday, 10 October, 2010 - 13:00 - 16:00
What's 10 x 10 x 10 equal? 800,000 pounds of carbon dioxide, if you're counting with Project Smart Light. Join the PSL crew and other enviro-savvy organizations from the Pikes Peak community and help us install 1,000 bulbs in residences in the region. We're making it our goal to switch out 1,000 energy-wasting, GHG-polluting, super-lame incandescent bulbs with energy-efficient, longer-lasting, money-saving CFLs!
If that wasn’t enough hyphens for you, then well I don’t know what to tell you other than join Project Smart Light, 1Sky, Green Cities Coaltion, Manitou Community Gardens, Transition Town Manitou Springs, 350.org, and all hip people the world over and get to work on 10/10/10!
We will gather together for tree planting, sharing fall gardening tips, and enjoying the season. Let's share information and ideas about the subtle changes in our lives that will make a difference for our planet.
Where: Located on Higginbotham flats in Manitou Springs. Take Highway 24 West towards Woodland Park. Pass 31st Street Exit, continue to drive west, as you come to the next stop light (you will see the storage units on your left, and Cave of the Winds on your right), take a left at the light, and then take an immediate left and then an immediate right turn, you will see the Manitou Community gardens. You are there! We will be sending groups of volunteers out from this location to install bulbs in residences in nearby neighborhoods.
