Change the World, Start with ENERGY STAR is a national campaign from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) encouraging all Americans to join with millions of others in taking small steps that make a big difference in the fight against global warming. The campaign focuses on changes individuals can make at home, at work, and in their communities with ENERGY STAR qualified products and energy-efficient practices that will save energy, save money, and help protect the environment. Below are some of the recent ENERGY STAR campaigns Mass Save has participated in.
