Earth Day 2010 Celebrated With an Incandescent Lamp BurialSolais Lighting Group
Bridgeport, Connecticut – April 23, 2010 – Solais Lighting, LLC, the leading manufacturer of specification-grade, high-output LED lamps, hosted a burial ceremony for an incandescent lamp at its headquarters yesterday in the gloomy rain, symbolizing the death of dated incandescent technology.Following the burial, the team – along with newly appointed chief technology officer, Steve Johnson, Ph.D – gathered in the lobby to screw in a new LR38 LED lamp, symbolizing the birth and growth of LED technology. Ironically, the sun made an appearance as the team completed the lobby ceremony. It was a symbolic day for the team, for the company, for the environment and for the environmentally friendly products that Solais manufactures.Solais believes that its products will significantly contribute to the climate initiative that Earth Day promotes. In simple terms, by replacing just one 75–watt incandescent lamp in your household with the Solais LR38 LED lamp, you could accomplish, over the life of the lamp, the equivalent of: driving 4,201 fewer miles on the road, reducing 4,040 pounds of CO2 emissions, recycling 1,232 pounds of landfill waste, saving 206 gallons of gas or planting 47 tree seedlings.Earth Day 2010 is an essential opportunity for individuals, corporations and governments to join together and create a global green economy. Solais is proud to support the more than one billion people in 190 countries that are taking action for Earth Day.
