Easy Ways to Advocate for the Planet Offered by SYLVANIA Lighting by LEDVANCE

1. Add more energy-efficient lighting – Lighting accounts for more than 15 percent of the electricity used at home.  Changing to energy-efficient LED bulbs can save you up to 85 percent on your lighting electricity use and reduce associated air pollution emissions from the power plants that burn fossil fuels to generate that electricity.     You’ll see an immediate reduction in your energy bill by changing incandescent bulbs to LED lighting, like the first-to-market SYLVANIA 10-Year (Contractor Series) LED Portfolio.   2. Depend on ENERGY STAR – Choosing energy-consuming products with the ENERGY STAR label can help save you energy and money.   3. Vampire energy – Electronics and small appliances that plug into the wall and have a remote or have an electronic display or LED status light can suck energy even when not in use.  Reduce "standby power" (the energy used even while an appliance is switched off or not performing its primary function) at home and at work.     The easiest way is to unplug gadgets not in use.  You can also use power surge protector strips (with multiple electrical outlets) and turn the power off at the strip.  For safety, keep frequently-used appliances plugged in like the TV, cable box, microwave and alarm clock.   4. Off with the monitor! – Turn off your monitor at the end of the day.  Monitors consume 80 percent of a desktop’s energy.  Even in “sleep mode,” monitors are still drawing a small, unnecessary amount of power.   5. Cargo impact – Avoid carrying unneeded items in your vehicle’s trunk.  An extra 100 pounds in your car’s trunk cuts fuel economy by up to 2 percent.   6. Act Smart -- Smart lighting, like SYLVANIA Smart+, allows users to have convenient control of their lighting and electronics, optimize their home and work environments, improve efficiency, and help save time and energy.  By turning lights on and off with schedules you create via an app, you can control when and where you use your lighting, and you’ll save energy.    Imagine coming home to a welcoming porch light that turns on just before you get home, rather than leaving it on all day.  Smart plugs allow you do the same with your window AC units, turning them on remotely 15 minutes before you arrive home for example.  Your home will be cool when you arrive without having your AC run for hours when you’re away.   7. Tire inflation – Keep tires properly inflated and aligned.  You can improve your gas mileage by up to 5 cents per gallon by keeping your tires inflated to the proper pressure.    8. Electronics recycling – Electronics such as computers, printers, cell phones, compact fluorescent light bulbs and other gadgets contain small amounts of hazardous material like lead.  Many retail stores, municipalities and electronic manufacturers offer returns or collection of these items that get sent to special facilities for proper recycling.   In honor of Earth Day on April 22, lighting company LEDVANCE is sharing simple “ADVOCATE” tips for those who want to be more environmentally conscious and support the health of our planet. In North America, LEDVANCE offers SYLVANIA advanced LED bulbs, traditional light sources, standardized luminaires and smart lighting solutions for professional users and retail customers.
