Hi, what are you looking for?

CleanTechnica
Energy Star has a "Be an Energy Star" video challenge going on right now (on YouTube & Facebook), geared at highlighting the many great things people around the country are doing to save energy. Interestingly, I didn't run across news of this via any of my normal cleantech avenues, but found it on sister site sustainablog. Jeff over on sustainablog chose the video below as his favorite so far (though, there are still a number of videos to come, as the contest runs until September 16). I have to admit it's pretty cool and cute.

You can learn more about the contest or take the Energy Star pledge over on its website. Currently, 2,853,010 people have taken this pledge, resulting in:

  • $793,107,376 in energy savings,
  • 10,243,261,274 lbs of greenhouse gas emissions eliminated, and
  • 6,008,157,595 of electricity saved.
