Panasonic donates 1,000 eco-friendly light bulbs to Indonesian village

The Jakarta Post, 26 April 2012 - Japanese electronics firm Panasonic is calling on Indonesians to save energy and cut down on carbon dioxide emissions, through its "Eco Ideas" program of corporate social responsibility for villages.

Japanese electronics firm Panasonic is calling on Indonesians to save energy and cut down on carbon dioxide emissions, through its "Eco Ideas" program of corporate social responsibility for villages.

"We are working together with an electronics retail company, Electronic City, to donate about 1,000 eco-friendly light bulbs to 651 household heads at Warung Kadu village in Purwakarta regency, West Java, where each family will receive three light bulbs," said Ronny Heribertus, Panasonic’s company spokesman, as quoted bykompas.com.

The 11-watt sustainable light bulbs can generate the kind of light similar to a 60-watt bulb. These so-called "eco spiral" bulbs can save 80 percent of electricity and last 10 thousand hours.

Panasonic's "Eco Ideas" program aimed to help Indonesian communities change their energy-consumption patterns so that they could save on energy, Ronny said on Tuesday.
