The 22nd of April has been an important day around the world for the last 45 years. It’s the one day of the year that all walks of life unite globally to support the environment we live in. As we come together to celebrate and protect our beautiful planet, we can’t help but feel humbled by each and every one of our customers.
In honor of this year’s Earth Day, we thought we’d remind our customers, what a great thing they’re doing for the planet by buying LED products. You may know the basics: LED lights are durable and designed to last up to 50 times longer than traditional bulbs, which means less waste being recycled or tossed in the landfill. LED lights can also save up to 85 percent of the energy gobbled up by incandescent bulbs, and up to 50 percent of the energy used by fluorescents.
The average holiday light show is limited to the color of the bulbs and either a steady glow or a “twinkle” flashing effect. But for the ambitious decorator, a relatively new LED lighting option can transform a display from basic to “Bravo!” Last week, students in NJ put our programmable RGB LED lights to the test for a school science fair project. Their work not only shows us some of the endless possibilities with this technology, but also the amazing science behind it. In fact, they learned not only about light (and LEDs), but color, computer programming, and how images are displayed on a screen. Way to go, students!
People all over the country are emerging from the long winter and venturing outdoors to enjoy the warmer weather. It is time to start thinking about your back yard. Get that rake out and clean up the mess that winter left. Run to the local nursery for new plants and flowers for your garden. Start planning your backyard parties and BBQs with family and friends. It’s a great time to think about ways to make your back yard and patio an oasis you can escape to after a long day.
It’s that joyous time of year. When the snow finally starts to melt. The trees start to bud tiny bits of green. Spring is in the air and that means that brides-to-be everywhere are anxiously counting down the days to their big day. Spring and early summer are the best months for weddings, especially outdoor weddings. The right decorative atmosphere helps to make your outdoor wedding magical and memorable.
For safety and liability reasons, wedding and party venues are more regularly not allowing candles in decorations, plus outdoor events can make candles impractical due to wind and other weather issues. LED lights provide a safe and beautiful alternative, with battery operated strands and micro dots making them easy and portable to use. Learn, step-by-step in this SlideShare (or download the PDF below), how to make attractive LED-enhanced flower arrangements and firefly jars to light up your table arrangements!
Cities are well aware that switching to LED lights in their holiday displays, office corridors, and streetlights can save lots of money. But here’s another surprising advantage: Police believe that the cooler, more focused light from LED streetlights, might actually help fight crime. That’s partly because some people who witness crimes at night can more accurately report details, such as colors, under LED lights.
