The FINANCIAL -- Visitors to the GE Lighting Facebook page can enter for a chance to win a
grand prize VIP trip for four to Universal Studios Hollywood or a
Blu-ray combo pack for one of this year’s top animated films, Dr. Seuss’
The Lorax, as part of a GE Lighting nationwide sweepstakes running
through October 31, 2012.
In celebration of the film’s Blu-ray and DVD debut on August 7, GE is working with Universal Studios Home Entertainment to share the film’s environmentally conscious message in conjunction with its energy-efficient light bulbs, including the energy-efficient soft white bulbs, energy smart LED bulbs and an energy smart Bright From the Start CFL that uses a halogen capsule inside a CFL spiral to provide instant brightness.
According to the General Electric Company, the grand-prize trip to Universal Studios Hollywood in California includes round-trip airfare for the winner and three guests to Los Angeles, a three-night hotel stay, four Universal Studios VIP Experience tour tickets and free admission to the Universal Studios Hollywood theme park.
In addition to the grand prize, 100 lucky winners will receive a Blu-ray combo pack, which includes a DVD, Digital Copy and UltraViolet, of Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax. Entrants can print a coupon good toward GE’s energy-efficient light bulbs.
“We share a belief with Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax when it comes to the environment. At GE Lighting, we are committed to investing in innovative and environmentally preferable solutions that provide value to our customers,” says Jeff Patton, general manager of consumer marketing, GE Lighting. “We are leading a lighting revolution with products that combine long life and energy savings with the reliability of the GE brand.”
The impact of energy-efficient lighting solutions is significant. For example, if every U.S. household replaced just one 60-watt incandescent bulb with a GE 13-watt CFL, approximately 1.8 million metric tons of CO2 emissions would be avoided on the power grid per year, equivalent to the annual CO2 emissions of 698,000 cars on U.S. roads or the amount of CO2 absorbed annually over 970,000 acres of Southeastern U.S. forest trees.
