The award-winning Project Porchlight is our flagship campaign. But we aren’t stopping there. By engaging people in their own neighbourhoods, our volunteers have personalized contacts and been able to ask questions at the door that can help refine future energy conservation and environmental initiatives. With each program, One Change grows stronger.
The light at the front door is a beacon, a symbol of community, and a declaration of welcome to others. It’s also the place where the person-to-person communication at the heart of One Change occurs. Since 2005, over 12,000 volunteers in 900 North American communities have been engaged to carry the “Simple Actions Matter” message with a free energy efficient compact fluorescent light bulb (CFL) door-to-door in their own neighbourhoods. To date, more than 3 million CFLs have been delivered, with Project Porchlight campaigns having reached four provinces and three states.
One Change’s fuel efficiency initiative
Building on the success of Project Porchlight, One Change’s fuel efficiency initiative is a grassroots action campaign that empowers people to believe that simple actions matter. Our team will deliver free digital keychain tire gauges to communities across North America, offering a gateway to awareness and individual action on personal vehicle efficiency. Our fuel efficiency campaign is designed to encourage motorists to adopt good tire maintenance and fuel efficiency behaviours that will put more money in your pocket and help protect the environment—simple actions matter!
One Change’s water conservation campaign
Join us in protecting the most valuable resource of all. We’re working on an innovative water conservation campaign for 2010, unlike anything you’ve seen before. Be part of the creative group!
Green the Season
In 2007, One Change was hired by the Ontario Power Authority to run a province-wide campaign promoting the use of seasonal LEDs (energy efficient Christmas lights). Working with two retail partners and more than 200 volunteers, we held light exchange events in 28 Ontario communities over one weekend in November 2007. Nearly four tonnes of wasteful incandescent light strings were collected and recycled in exchange for energy efficient LED light strings.
