Riverside, NJ (PRWEB) April 21, 2005
Sea Gull Lighting Products, Inc. (http://www.SeaGullLighting.com) a leading manufacturer of functional and decorative lighting products, and Energy StarÂ® Partner of the Year is reminding everyone that although Friday, April 22nd is the calendar date for Earth Day, individually and collectively we have the ability and power to make every day, Earth Day!
Business, organizations and consumers all play an important role in reducing harmful, greenhouse gas emissions and protecting our environment for future generations. For the past 15 years, Sea Gull Lighting has actively participated in the Energy Star program by dedicating its efforts to the development, refinement and marketing of hundreds of Energy Star qualified decorative lighting products.
According to Ace Rosenstein, Sea Gull Lighting vice president marketing and business development, "As a charter member of Energy Star since 1992 and honored Partner of the Year by the US Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy, Sea Gull Lighting has boldly pioneered the advance of energy efficient lighting as well as dedicated its resources to the promotion of the technologyÂs many environmentally-friendly and cost-saving benefits.Â
Sea Gull Lighting currently markets over 500 Energy Star qualified lighting and ceiling fan products in a vast array of styles, colors and finishes to complement a wide range of decorative and functional demands of designers, builders, architects and home owners. Once known for green hues, humming and flickering, Sea Gull Lighting has worked closely with the EPA and others to advance fluorescent lighting technologies and fixture style making the latest Energy Star qualified lighting fixtures virtually indistinguishable from their traditional incandescent counterparts.
"I invite you to join me in celebrating the 35th Anniversary of Earth Day and take the time to reflect on our nationÂs environmental accomplishments and recommit to challenges of the future", said EPA's Acting Administrator, Steve Johnson.
This year marks the 35th Anniversary of ÂEarth DayÂ. On April 22, 1970, 20 million people across America celebrated the first Earth Day. It was a time when cities were buried under their own smog and polluted rivers caught fire. Now 35 years later, Earth Day is being celebrated around the globe. Through the combined efforts of the U.S. government, grassroots organizations, and citizens like you, what started as a day of national environmental recognition has evolved into a world-wide campaign to protect our global environment.
Did You Know?
- Energy Star qualified lighting provides more light while using 2/3 less energy than standard incandescent lighting.
- The average home is responsible for more air pollution than the average car.
- If one room in every US household was brightened by Energy Star qualified lighting, the annual energy savings would be equivalent to removing more than 8 million cars from the road for one year.
- ItÂs easy to see that Energy Star qualified fixtures are a stylish addition to any dÃ©cor. What you canÂt see is that they use less energy with bulbs that last 6 to 10 times longer than standard incandescent bulbs.
- The US demand for electricity is due to increase 28% over the next 20 years. And global demand will double by 2025.
