The Lions Club together with local clubs and community
groups go door-to-door knocking.
Titahi Bay is tackling climate change head-on with an innovative lightbulb
replacement scheme that could save up to $1 million.
Organised by the Sustainability Trust, the switch for the Titahi Bay
flicked on last Saturday. It sees more than 100 volunteers visit local
businesses, over six weekends, to replace 10,000 standard lightbulbs with
A standard 100-watt bulb is replaced with an energy saving version, which
lasts up to 10
times longer and uses one fifth of the energy of standard bulbs – which
equates to a
power bill saving of up to $100 over the life of the bulb (lifetime
estimated at 5 years).
Trust manager Lee Barry said the project sends a message to the rest of the
Titahi Bay Lions Club had organised a fleet of vehicles for the volunteers.
