Living green in Pine Bluff

The city of Pine Bluff began distributing CFL energy efficient light bulbs free to residents Tuesday in the Living Green in Pine Bluff program.

Mayor Carl A. Redus Jr. announced the program last week to give light bulbs to more than 1,500 households in Pine Bluff.

Living Green began handing out light bulbs at a booth set up in the Pine Bluff Civic Center parking lot Tuesday.

Light bulbs will be distributed from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. through Thursday this week and on Dec. 26-28. The distribution will be moved to city council chambers if inclement weather occurs.

Residents will need to bring proof that they live in Pine Bluff. Bulbs will be handed out on a first come, first served basis.

Funding for the light bulbs was made available through a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy focused on energy conservation. Living Green is a project to encourage residents to adopt energy conservation behavior.
