Goshen, NY, November 17, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Being ecologically friendly can start easily in the home. Lighting that is energy efficient can be beautiful at the same time. LightingShowplace.com’s new “Go Green … Save Money” campaign is a great place to start for consumers and pros who want to be kinder to the Earth without sacrificing style.
LightingShowplace.com, a division of Decorative Product Source, is going green with hundreds of selections available that meet strict Energy Star standards of efficiency. The Energy Star program was set up by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy to help Americans save money and the environment through energy efficient products and practices. Products that earn the Energy Star rating must meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set forth by these two departments.
LightingShowplace.com proudly sells products from a number of top lighting manufacturers such as Minka Lavery, Seagull Lighting, Progress Lighting, Hinkley Lighting and Kichler Lighting who have fully embraced the goals of Energy Star and produce beautiful, stylish, energy efficient lighting.
The site also features lighting that complies with California’s Title 24 building codes, which set strict limits on energy consumption in new homes, additions, remodels and most commercial buildings.
For landscape applications, solar light can store the sun’s energy during the day and give off free light at night. LightingShowplace.com has a selection of beautiful solar landscape lights, from path lighting to unique lighting options that double as planters.
Outdoor lighting must be effective, yet not blot out the beauty of the night sky. That’s where dark-sky lighting comes into play. LightingShowplace.com sells lighting that is dark-sky certified, meaning it directs light downward where it is intended, without scattering it where it’s not needed.
If every home in the United States replaced their five most frequently used lighting fixtures with energy efficient models, they would save a total of almost $8 billion annually in energy costs. That would also prevent the equivalent of greenhouse gases from almost 10 million cars from going into the atmosphere. With hundreds of items to choose from, LightingShowplace.com can help consumers on their way to going “green.”
