Climate change is on everyone’s lips. We are pushing huge amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere every year and the earth cannot keep up.
The concentrations of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have been substantially increasing over the years. They act like a blanket trapping a large amount of the heat that would otherwise have been radiated out into space.
The Mother Nature is always in a state of change. We all witness extreme weather conditions like floods, drought, extreme heat, hurricanes, tornados etc. All of this affects our life on planet earth.
It is our responsibility to reduce additional carbon emissions into the atmosphere. We want to keep our planet as clean and green as possible. One of the ways of doing this is to adopt LED lights into our homes and offices.
How Do LED Lightbulbs Aid Climate Change?
- Carbon-dioxide Emission Reduction
Lights in our homes are a standard feature and are taken for granted, but few of us realize that choosing the correct type of lightbulb will help in the fight against carbon emission.
Lighting as a whole contributes close to 5% of CO2 emissions globally. Switching to rechargeable LED light bulbs can aid in reducing 1,400 million tons of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere. This equates to a saving of up to 50 – 70%.
Introducing these LED lightbulbs into our homes is an easy and effective way of contributing to reducing carbon dioxide emissions into our environment.
2. Declined Power Usage
Declined power usage lowers the levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere as the demand for fossil fuels (Petroleum, coal, natural gas) lessens. When fossil fuels burn, they release carbon dioxide in large amounts. This traps heat in our atmosphere.
One LED lightbulb will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by close to half a ton. The energy consumption for one LED lightbulb over a period of 1 year is approximately 30 times lower than for an incandescent bulb.
The other huge benefit is to your energy bill. Lighting costs can be lowered to 5% of the total electricity consumption in homes.
Safelumin only uses 7.5W electricity equivalent to 60W small battery-operated light bulbs. Estimated yearly energy cost $0.92 per bulb. The Safelumin LED light bulb with battery backup
will last 25,000 hours. This translates to 22.8 years based on 3 hours per day.
3. No Necessary Lifestyle Shift
There is no huge lifestyle change in replacing incandescent bulbs with LED light bulbs in your home. The Safelumin light bulbs work from AC100V to 240V global voltage. Everything remains the same except for the look and feel of the lamp. It is as simple as plug and play.
Fueling Benefits to the Environment
- Waving Bye to the Toxins
Incandescent lightbulbs are responsible for the highest emissions of mercury into the environment. Mercury is used in an incandescent bulb to emit light, but it is also highly toxic when the lightbulbbreaks. LED lightbulbs are completely free of any mercury making them the safest solution for lighting in any office or home.
LED lightbulbs are made up of plastic and metal both of which can be recycled. 95% of an LED bulb can be recycled. Incandescent lightbulbs cannot be recycled at all.
Safelumin rechargeable LED lightbulbs are the #1 LED lightbulbs for daily use and for emergencies. They are not only beneficial to the environment and to your pocket, but they also save you during times of power outages. These rechargeable LED light bulbs auto-charge while the lights are on and stop charging when the battery is full.
Lighting is a basic need for all of us, but it is also imperative for all of us to take care of our environment. The Safelumin emergency rechargeable LED lightbulb offers a solution for every need.
