How To Make This Year's Holiday Decor "Go Green"

Saving the Environment with Holiday Lights

Tis’ the season! This holiday season, everyone is filled with joy and excitement as friends and family get the opportunity to spend time together and reflect on great memories. All of these great memories would not be possible without this beautiful planet.

During this upcoming holiday season, take advantage of a little way that you can help protect mother earth. Switching out your regular lights with eco-friendly lights can help save the environment while appreciating all that it has given us.

Indoor LED Light Decorations

LED lights are more expensive than your traditional lights, but they will save you a ton of money in the long run.

For one, they use one-tenth of the electricity that standard bulbs use. People always cringe during the holidays when they receive their electric bill - this is one way to avoid that cringe.

Another reason to switch over is because LED lights don’t burn out like the standard ones. Studies have shown that LED lights can last up to 50 times longer than standard lights. Save money, aggravation, and the environment with LED light decorations this year.

Solar Powered Outdoor Lights

For the outside of your house, consider switching to using solar-powered lights. In addition to saving you money, you don’t have to go through the headache of using extension cords and replacing broken bulbs. No plugs are needed for your solar-powered outdoor lights.

All that you need is a rechargeable battery and you are good to go. The holidays lead to an excessive amount of energy use, which leads to more carbon dioxide emissions, which ultimately hurts the environment.

One final positive with solar power outdoor lights is that you rest easy knowing you have greatly reduced any chance of a house fire. Increased use of electricity ultimately leads to an increased chance of a house fire. A house fire is no way to ever celebrate the holidays.

Maximize Your LED Decor

Reindeers and sleighs are popular LED light items to bring people’s imaginations to life. Candles are a very powerful holiday symbol and they are also available in Light Emitting Diode form. Sometimes it can be difficult to string lights around trees and shrubs.

Avoid that hassle by purchasing various LED lighted trees that are already decorated and ready to beautify your yard. You can decorate your dream house with all the fixings you want while saving money and the environment!
