FIRST Green e-watt saver Resources


ANNOUNCEMENT:  The FIRST Green e-watt saver program, funded through Google’s generous grant to FIRST, ended on June 19, 2015 when the last of our bulb inventory was sold. 

In 2010, Google provided a generous Grant to FIRST to support a Green Fundraising initiative for FIRST Teams. In January 2011 we launched a then start-of-the-art 40W replacement e-watt saver bulb. Teams learned about protecting the environment using LED technology, how to prepare fundraising business and marketing plans and the engineering behind the new LED technology. As of the last shipment in June 2015, we have delivered over 250,000 e-watt saver bulbs to FIRST teams. We estimate FIRST teams have generated about $2.6 million in fundraising dollars over the 4.5 years of the program.

We thank Google for their generous support of this Program. And we thank you, our Teams, for your participation in the FIRST Green e-watt saver program.  Together, we have conserved a significant amount of electricity, past and present, and reduced the number of light bulbs found in our landfills.
