Scott, yes the site encourages people to buy green products (LED bulbs, used and new EV's) to save money and live more sustainably. Yes, this clearly reduces carbon and benefits the planet and us.
Visitors to the Acterra EV event in Sunnyvale viewed my purchase of a 2016 Nissan Leaf and gained beautiful visual of a 1.5 year old car selling for $16,000. It was eye-opening for about 10 people I talked with that evening. Follow-up with additional info about my used EV is on the site.
I'm scaling the viewership by using social media, with documented 1,100 plus viewers of this info in about 10 days.

Awesome points Gregory Bell It would be amazing to see more data about the benefits of LED adoption outlined in the content of your presentation, as you work to add more details.

Currently, it's not clear in my view whether your proposal is focused on broadcasting broader sustainability tips to the entire community through your SustainTimes publication or just focused on LED tech. Would love to learn more about your vision.

Feel free to use this question to guide the direction of your proposal as you make updates:
How might we transform our relationship with food, water, and stuff to reduce waste?
