Lights Out, Green In turns 3!
Lights Out, Green In marked its third year in operation last month. The all-volunteer nonprofit has accomplished a great amount in the past three years. Lights Out, Green In has raised more than $10,000 thanks to five fundraisers and a number of donations. LOGI’s donation of more than 3,000 energy-saver bulbs will allow low-income residents to save more than $100,000 per year and save 800,000 pounds of carbon (the equivalent of taking 67 cars off the road) each year the bulbs last. In addition, Lights Out, Green In has secured a number of commitments from businesses and hundreds of assurances from households, pledging to turn off their lights from 11 a.m.  to 1 p.m. each day.
LOGI at the Wintertime Farmers Market
Lights Out, Green In returns to the Wintertime Farmers Market this week (Dec. 10) in Pawtucket, RI. The market, sponsored by FarmFresh RI, runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday through May at Hope Artiste Village (1005 Main St, Pawtucket, RI) and offers local food for every season. Stop by LOGI’s booth and purchase a T-shirt ($7 short-sleeve or $10 long-sleeve) to help support the cause.
