"We want to help the environment to save the earth," said Macey Terbeek, a fifth grader at Campbell Elementary School in Roosevelt Park. They're going door to door in honor of earth day passing out energy efficient lights.
"We knock on the doors and say 'This is Campbell Elementary,' and we're helping the environment with Earth Day bulbs," said Campbell student Rodrick Overstreet.
Students learned list of facts to persuade people that using the light bulbs isn't just about going going green, it's about saving green, too. It didn't matter if people were home or not . They still got an energy efficient light bulb.
"I think its really important because the earth is being polluted, and we're going through global warming. So it should be really important that we clean up the earth as much as possible, said Savannah Dedeaux, another fifth grader from Campbell.
DTE Energy and the West Michigan Environmental Action Council supplied the light bulbs. The kids say it was a lot of fun meeting many people in their neighborhoods.
