Natalie Portman, Kyra Sedgwick, and Chloe Sevigny are appearing in a new National Geographic “Green” video praising the benefits and importance of switching to compact fluorescent lightbulbs. Yes, the idea of using CFL bulbs to save energy, money, and the big picture has been knocked into our heads so many times that I’m anxious for LED bulbs to arrive. If only for a change of wording.

However, if you’re like me, there are still plenty of people you know that have yet to make the switch away from incandescent lightbulbs. In this light, it’s always good to have fresh reminders out there about the really super easy things you can do to make a difference. And save a buck. Check out the video below — which I dig, because the production budget was little more than picking up a camera and filming. Just seems more genuine to paint such environmental appeals in this way.
