An example in the area of Energy efficiency:
Suggest replacing incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescents, buying energy-efficient equipment bearing the Energy Star label and turning the equipment's power management features on by default.
* Benefits to the organization: lower energy bills, points for good citizenship
* Benefits to the public: cleaner air, less global warming pollution, increased energy independence for the United States
