Earth Day occurs every year on April 22nd. The purpose of the globally-acknowledged holiday is to promote conservation and concern for the environment, as well as to educate individuals on the Earth’s current state. Many environmental groups and organizations come together to carry out projects that are beneficial to the earth. Online LED light bulb retailer, Go Green LED Bulbs, encourages its customers, as well as other individuals, to participate in an activity that gives back to the earth this year.
Earth Day began back in 1970, thanks to former Wisconsin Senator, Gaylord Nelson. At the time, the public was unaware of what was happening to the environment. Humans were polluting the air with their cars and homes, and the oceans and seas were becoming polluted from oil spills and other human-caused factors. Nelson wanted the government to pay attention to the environmental issues at hand, and was interested in the rallies and protests occurring at that time for the Vietnam War. He decided to form a team to help create a nationwide rally to raise concern about pollution, scheduled for April 22nd, 1970, which became the first Earth Day.
The first Earth Day was a success and partially helped create the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as well as pushed for the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Act. Finally, in 1990, Earth Day went global and was recognized by nearly 150 countries across the globe. This particular Earth Day encouraged the 1992 United Nations Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro.
Each year, thousands and thousands of environmental groups team up to work towards a more sustainable earth. Individuals can help by donating to these various groups, or can volunteer to help these groups. Go Green LED Bulbs encourages customers to vow to become more eco-friendly in their everyday lifestyles by carrying out simple tasks. One of those tasks can be using energy efficient lighting. LED light bulbs are the most energy-efficient light bulbs available today, and significantly reduce the energy consumption for lighting in homes. Consequently, since they save energy, they also save homeowners money on electricity costs. LED light bulbs may cost more when purchasing than other types of light bulbs, but they offer a great return on investment when it comes to energy costs. LED light bulbs are also more durable than other types of light bulbs, and will last for decades, rather than years. This saves individuals the time and money on replacing burnt out bulbs around the home. LED bulbs are also versatile in that they can be used in many other applications beyond the home. Some include office buildings, marquee lighting, parking lot lighting, roadway lights and many more.
Although other types of light bulbs may be energy efficient as well, most of them contain hazardous chemicals that are not only harmful to humans, but to the environment, as well. Because they contain these chemicals, they are difficult to dispose of. There are no harmful chemicals in LED light bulbs and is no threat if broken. LEDs can also be easily recycled.
Many businesses, commercial entities, and other institutions, have switched to LEDs in order to reduce their carbon footprint. This Earth Day, Go Green LED Bulbs encourages individuals to consider carrying out actions that will reduce their carbon footprint, such as switching to energy-efficient LEDs.
