Rethink Energy: Lighten Up Arlington!

Lighten Up Arlington via Rethink Energy

This regularly-scheduled sponsored Q&A column is written by the Arlington Initiative to Rethink Energy team (AIRE). This county program helps you make smart energy decisions that save you money and leaves a lighter footprint on the environment. Got a question? Email us at [email protected]!

It’s no secret that fall is starting to surrender itself to winter. Not only have temperatures dropped, but thanks to Daylight Saving Time the sun is setting earlier and earlier. (Reminder – set your clocks back on 11/6!)  If you ride your bike, walk or run after 5 p.m., you will be doing it in the dark.

Don’t worry, BikeArlington, WalkArlington, and the Rethink Energy Program have your back! Two pop-up events are coming up to give you free LED bike lights, LED light bulbs, and reflective vests. Help us help you to be seen by other road and trail users and to light your home. LED lighting info will also be provided to help you make a switch to more efficient lighting at home.

Lighten Up Arlington will take place from 4:30-7 p.m.:

November 7 — Rosslyn Bike-o-Meter (Intersection of the Custis Trail & Lynn Street)

November 9 — Columbia Pike (Intersection of the W&OD Trail & Columbia Pike)

Stop by, get lit, don some snazzy gear to see and be seen, and make a switch to LED lighting at home.

Did you know?

  • Daylight saving time was an idea to conserve energy by using the sun’s light instead of candles or oil.
  • Benjamin Franklin takes the honor (blame?) for the idea.
  • In 1918 the United States adopted daylight saving time.
  • Hawaii, Arizona and parts of Indiana don’t observe daylight saving time.
  • Parents dread time changes because the shift messes with their children’s sleep cycle.

The reason is threefold.

First, using safe cleaning products ensures toxic chemicals won’t leak into waterways or harm wildlife if disposed of improperly.

Second, it’s better for you and your family. Fragrant chemicals in surface cleaners can expose you to a similar amount of pollutant particles as a busy city road, New Scientist reported.
