These days everyone is looking to save a little cash. What if we told you that you could do that, while helping the environment? By replacing your incandescent bulbs with more efficient LED technology you can do both.

Just to use a real world example of this advanced lighting in action; the electronics company LG recently retrofitted one of their plants with LED lighting. They have stated that over the course of last year, that change has made the same impact on carbon levels as if they had planted 63,000 pine trees!

Why replace your current bulbs with high-tech LED Lighting instead of energy efficient fluorescent bulbs you ask? T8 LED tubes (which is one of the products that the LG plant installed) consume 54% less energy and last 60% longer than the fluorescent tubes they replace. In addition all fluorescent lighting must contain hazardous material like Mercury to operate (you don’t need a hazmat suit on standby if you drop an LED).

In addition to replacement bulbs there are a huge variety of LED products on the market today. The most versatile is probably LED light Strips. These are flexible and great for just about anything from lighting up a room, to accenting behind a flat panel TV.

As you can see there are numerous advantages to starting the switch over to LED lighting like LG. Check out more information or LED products by visiting
