Good things are happening! | Lights Out San Francisco

Good things are happening!

We’ve been so busy brainstorming, organizing, and fundraising that we haven’t had time to write. Now we’re back, and we got some great news to share!

During the week of August 6th we were officially endorsed by the San Francisco Department of the Environment and featured in the Examiner.

We are now sponsored by both Esurance and Integrated Archive Systems. Yesterday, we secured support from the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition and California Interfaith Power and Light. Other supporters include Flex Your Power, the Golden Gate Restaurant Association, PG&E, SF Climate Challenge, Teacher With the Bus, Rainforest Action Network, and Yahoo!.

We’re making great progress with donations of compact flourescent light bulbs (CFLs). PG&E has donated thousands of bulbs for us to distribute for free throughout San Francisco. We’re aware that there is some controversy over the danger of mercury found in CFLs. According Helen Suh MacIntosh, a professor in environmental health at Harvard University, CFLs are safe. You can read a summary on the issue so you can make your own determination. More information on CFLs can also be found on the Sierra Club website.

Currently, we’re working on reaching out to public and private schools from the elementary to collegiate levels in hopes of educating students about energy conservation and promoting our event. If you’d like to get your school involved, send us an e-mail at rachel@lightsoutsf.org
