Greenpeace India campaign - Ban the Bulb

Ban the Bulb

Please support Greenpeace India's Ban the Bulb movement, for us and for the future generation. Fight against Global Warming!

About Greenpeace

Greenpeace is a non-profit organisation, with a presence in 40 countries across Europe, the Americas, Asia and the Pacific. To maintain its independence, Greenpeace does not accept donations from governments or corporations but relies on contributions from individual supporters and foundation grants.

As a part of its campaign to phase out inefficient lighting in India to fight climate change, Greenpeace demonstrates in front of the Mysore Palace on Sunday, July 29th. The Mysore palace, which uses over 96,000 incandescent light bulbs for its illumination, can save Rs 41 Lakhs in electricity bills and a significant amount of electricity and carbon dioxide by switching to compact fluroscent lamps.

Greenpeace activists float a 66 feet life ring at the Gateway of India with a call to 'Ban the Bulb' and fight climate change. Parts of Mumbai, are threatened with submergence if global temperature rise is not kept below 2 degree centigrade. Phasing out the incandescent light bulb would lead to reductions in India's carbon-di-oxide emissions by 55 million tonnes and also save upto 12000 MW of power annually
