A lot of us changed out our light bulbs a few years back for CFL’s (compact fluorescent lights). But now it is time to make another change to LED lights. Technology has brought LED lights to a point in which their luminescence is as good as or better than traditional light bulbs and CFL’s, but you use a fraction of the electricity. Additionally, one LED light can last up to 10 years, which means they are money savers and produce much less waste overall.
For our health and the environment, LEDs are non-toxic, unlike CFLs. Further, LEDs use as little as 10 percent of the energy of incandescent bulbs, which means you waste less energy and require less power. This is great news for climate change reversal because when you combine renewable energy with using less energy overall, this has a double whammy effect of producing less greenhouse gases. And all you’re doing is changing out light bulbs.
