Did you know April is Earth month? Since its beginning in 1970, celebration and awareness of the energy we consume and its effects on our planet has spread around the world. What started as a collection of 20 million Americans on one day in late April has grown to an month-long awareness campaign recognized by over 180 countries and some 1 billion people!
Even still, we have a lot of room to make improvements in the U.S. We use an overwhelming amount of the world’s energy even though our population accounts for only 5% of all people on this planet. To put it another way, the average American uses the same amount of energy as 307 Tanzanians.
But what can you do? You still have to run a successful business in order to feed your family after all.
Why not try making small changes like switching all your interior and exterior lights to energy-efficient, environmentally-friendly LED lighting? It can be especially beneficial for lights that stay on for long periods of time such as your storefront’s ‘Open’ sign. Enter Metropolitan Display’s Illuminated LED Sign collection.
