Hi friends! My name is TOLBY– that stands for “Turn Off Lights Behind You.” I’m a little different than those other fireflies because I love to save energy! When I first started flying around, I got tired quickly because it took too much energy to keep my light on. So I got a new light! My new light is called a “compact fluorescent light bulb” and like me, it has a shorter name: CFL. A CFL uses less energy so now I can fly around to visit my friends and stay bright for a long time without getting tired.
I like doing things that save energy because it helps keep the earth healthy – and it’s FUN! I like to help all my friends save energy too, so we can all be super energy savers together. My friends at the Minnesota Energy Challenge made me this fun website so I can tell my favorite stories about how to save energy and stay bright.
I would love to hear all of the ways that you are saving energy at home and school, with your family and friends. I also know that saving energy can be confusing sometimes. I love notes from all of my wonderful energy saving friends – so if you have any questions, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
