Atlanta, GA - Tony C. Anderson, a social entrepreneur and co-founder and Executive Director of The Let's Retrofit A Million Education Fund, has retrofitted over 50,000 energy efficient light bulbs, water conservation kits and low flow toilets by canvassing low-income neighborhoods door-to-door; a realized savings of over $7.1 million. Tony sees his role in this movement not only as an educator and a builder of green collar jobs but also as the creator of "green cufflink" jobs.
