It’s no secret that LED lights are more energy efficient and better for the environment than traditional incandescent or fluorescent lights; however, they also offer a far greater advantage: reducing your carbon footprint.
What is your carbon footprint and why should you care?
Your carbon footprint is the amount carbon dioxide that you emit into the atmosphere. Too much carbon dioxide causes pollution and may affect the climate. To produce electricity, power plants must burn coal which releases carbon dioxide.
Why do LEDs help reduce your carbon footprint?
By using LED lights, you are using less electricity than incandescent bulbs; therefore, emitting less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and reducing your carbon footprint.
Reducing your carbon footprint is just one of the many benefits of LEDs.
- Energy efficiency in LEDs is up to 80-90% better than incandescent bulbs
- LED bulbs shine brighter, with as many as 10 diodes per bulb!
- LED bulbs are designed to last, both through durable construction and long lasting illumination.
If you want to reduce your carbon footprint this holiday season, consider switching to LED Christmas lights.
