Challenge Month One--Go Green for the Holidays

Switch to LED Holiday Lights. LEDs come in warm, inviting colors in a variety of light beam patterns to give you lots of decorating options. Not only that, they last up to 10 times longer than traditional lights and are much more durable since they are not made of glass or filaments. Unlike the traditional bulb, one individual outage won't affect the whole strand. They are cool to the touch and it's safer to connect multiple strands end-to-end without overloading the wall socket. The best reason to switch is that they save you money. LEDs consume up to 90% less electricity than the conventional incandescent holiday light strands. 

Limit the Light. Consider trimming back the number of hours your lights are on each day. Holiday lights don't have the same effect during the day as they do at night. You can purchase a timer to install on your indoor/outdoor lights so you don't have to remember to shut them off. Set the timer so your lights turn on at dusk and off when you go to bed.
