The Holidays are here and many of you are beginning to think about Holiday decorations. Did you know that if all the decorative light strings sold in America this year were ENERGY STAR qualified, we would save over 2 billion kWh per year and reduce greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to nearly 300,000 cars?! ENERGY STAR qualified decorative light strings – many of which use LED technology - consume 75% less energy than conventional incandescent lights strands. lease visit the EPA’s ENERGY STAR site for a list of additional benefits associated with ENERGY STAR qualified decorative light strings: http://www.energystar.gov
Happy Holidays! P.S. Look for ideas for Christmas tree recycling in the January 2015 tip!
