APRIL 23, 10 A.M.: Trade in your old light-bulbs for energy savers
Don’t miss your chance during Earth Week to save energy and money by taking your incandescent bulbs out of circulation. On April 23, visit Lights Out, Green In’s table at the Pawtucket Wintertime Farmers’ Market and swap up to 5 incandescent bulbs for energy-saving CFL bulbs. The best part – IT’S FREE. The offer lasts from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. while supplies last. Reduce your carbon footprint with this simple and free exchange at the farmers market located at Hope Artiste Village (1005 Main St, Pawtucket). This offer comes thanks to a partnership with National Grid as well as a RI DEM Earth Day grant provided by J.R. Vinagro/Patriot Disposal of Johnston, RI.
