Fairfield resident sees the light on saving energy
Fairfield resident Mauricio Marambio has taken up an initiative to save
money and help the environment by participating in carbon credit trading.
Mauricio Marambio, Fairfield Heights resident, has installed an Easy Being Green
Climate Saver Pack which contains six energy saving light globes and one AAA
rated water saving showerhead (for electric hot water users).
Carbon credit trading allows energy companies to meet mandatory emissions
targets by purchasing credits through accredited groups such as Easy Being
By installing the packs, a record number of Fairfield householders are saving
$150 off both their annual electricity and water bill and saves one tonne of
greenhouse gas pollution from entering earth’s atmosphere. Pack recipients also
save an average of 21,000 litres of water each year.
Mauricio first heard about Easy Being Green when he visited his local shopping
centre in August.
“I found Easy Being Green’s initiative to distribute Climate Saver Packs very
interesting, especially now that more and more people are getting concerned
about the environment,” Mauricio said.
“The Easy Being Green team explained that I could save energy and money by
installing the pack at home and the whole pack - six light globes and one
showerhead - was free,” he said.
Fairfield residents are able to collect their Easy Being Green Climate Saver
Pack free of charge at:
- Cabramatta Mall from 4 - 8 September
- Wetherill Park Stockland from 11 - 17 September
- Neeta City Fairfield from 18 - 24 September
- Bonnyrigg Plaza from 18 - 24 September
Mauricio said he was impressed with the pack after installing it.
“It was easy to install. The light globes are brighter than regular ones and the
pressure of the water saving showerhead is as good. All these help save energy
and water. It’s great! We’re very happy with the pack,” Mauricio said.
“If every household installs the Easy Being Green light globes and showerhead,
it will have an important impact on the environment. It will be much better for
us all,” he said.
Mauricio said he’s always looking for ideas that will help him become more
“At home, we do the usual recycling of paper, plastic, glass, etc. We also
recycle the water from the washing machine to water the plants,” he said.
“I’m always interested in opportunities that will help me save the environment
and if I can save money as well, it’s fantastic! I would like to see more
products on the market which are eco-friendly,” Mauricio said.
Easy Being Green is also offering residents the chance to sign up to Green
Power, which provides electricity from renewable energy sources, rather than
coal-fired power plants.
Easy Being Green, in partnership with leading integrated energy business and
Green Power retailer, TRUenergy, is helping householders double their options to
tackle climate change. When signing up to receive a Climate Saver Pack,
recipients can opt to receive further information about TRUenergy’s government
accredited green energy products, including TRUenergy Wind - a 100 percent wind
power energy plan.
