As everyone knows, we are entering the holiday season again. In the last couple years we have been trying to slowly make the change into having Green Holidays. Since, we've been trying to become more green as a family, I figure what better time than the holidays to make this change. Halloween is of course our favorite decorating season where we go all out! But at what cost? We are struggling like everyone financially, trying to save on our electric bills while still trying to reduce the amount of utilities we use in an effort to help the planet.
Halloween is a time that can create tons of waste decorating with cheap quality products that just end up in the trash. Each year we decorate with animated creatures and lights which of course uses tons of that energy. I refuse to contribute anymore to this wastefulness. So of course I've been doing my research this year trying to find companies that make our holidays just a little bit safer for everyone involved. This is how I stumbled across EnvironmentalLights.com.
"EnvironmentalLights.com is a leader in sustainable, energy-efficient LED lighting." They offer under cabinet lighting, rope and strip lighting, light bulbs, Christmas lights and other LED lighting solutions. Although, they do specialize in commercial production, all of their lighting is available for puchase for residential use. I am super psyched to share with you such a wonderful group of people who are just as concerned about the environment as you and me. These are extremely educated electrical engineers who have been properly trained and are well knowledged.
For Halloween we received the 5mm Conical Wide Angle 50 LED Christmas Light String -one in orange and one in purple. These are made with a black wire and are 25 feet long. Perfect for our dreary and creepy themes but bright enough to be well noticed by others. I love these lights and I feel so much more at ease about using these! I will also be reviewing Environmental Lights Chrismas Lights as well so I should be able to have a better idea of the kind of energy savings by then.
Cost: Starting at $19 an individual string but the more you buy the cheaper they will be.
Available to purchase: Environmental Lights
Recommendation: Definitely worth making the switch even though they are a little on the pricey side. Your investment is sure to last longer and save you in the long run. If we can each just switch out a string or two each year, the cost will be minimal but will make all the difference.
