Greenpeace are launching a 7 Step Climate Campaign, starting with what they consider the most outrageously wasteful of electrical household items: the incandescent light bulb. They say that a simple switch to energy saving bulbs in the European Union alone would save 20 million tonnes of CO2, equal to shutting down 25 medium-size dirty power plants; and this is before considering the efficiency of other household products, or even cars!

If you join Greenpeace’s campaign means you will get an email every week for seven weeks. Steps one, two and three are about changing your own lightbulbs and raising awareness about the campaign. Steps four, five and six are about demanding change from retailers, manufacturers and governments. Step seven they are keeping secret.

To join the campaign go to the Greenpeace website.
