Not long ago, my woman and I went to eat at Red Lobster. While sitting at our booth, I noticed that the lights at our table were using compact flourescent lightbulbs. I immediately got excited! "Could Darden Restaurants be taking a responsible role as a company," I thought. Well, my elation was soon trampled when we asked for containers to box up our leftovers. We were given a plastic bag and styrafoam containers. Ugh! I guess it is all about the money after all... But don't you know that you can't do business on a dead planet?
My second observations was at of all places, Walmart. But it was a Walmart grocery store. I was walking around and began walking toward the freezer section. I noticed that it was darker there in comparison to the rest of the store. All of the rfeezer lights were off. It was a bit spooky when I first got there though. The lights came on in the first coolers that I reached. Then, the lights came on in the next set of coolers as I reached those. I quickly realized that there were motion sensors turning the cooler lights on when they detected a person. The kids loved playing with them! A big kudos to you, Walmart (even though you are almost always the last store that I visit).
