    My productivity has increased. I have chose to go outside and tend my garden and shoot some hoops.

    My family's company and I are implementing sustainable use of light and electricity at a large university hosptial campus by relamping entire buildings on the campus with sustainable LED lights in all the hallways, bathrooms, exam rooms and offices. 
    Lights are left on in the buildings 24/7 for security purposes. Switching from flourescent to LED lamps lowers the consumption and provides a sustinable alternative for the hospital campus.
