LOGI cuts 675,000 pounds of carbon

Lights Out, Green In helped residents save energy and money by taking scores of incandescent bulbs out of circulation on April 23. Lights Out, Green In gave away 900 free energy-saver bulbs at the Pawtucket Wintertime Farmers’ Market and donated 600 energy-saver bulbs to the RI Food Bank to help low-income residents save money and the environment. Hundreds of people were able to reduce their carbon footprint with this simple and free exchange at the farmers market located at Hope Artiste Village (1005 Main St, Pawtucket). This offer came 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.

LOGI goes to college

Lights Out, Green In once again took its message to college campuses. During Earth Week, executive director Matt Martinelli talked to dozens of students from the earth group at Hamilton College. The speech on April 19 focused on simple ways to conserve energy, with an emphasis on pledging to turn off your lights from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
