Laser Pegs is reducing electricity through our eco-friendly toys and offices.
In the last few years, the topic of saving energy and becoming eco-friendly has become very trendy for both businesses and individuals. Many studies have shown just how destructive and damaging our energy footprint can be to the world around us when we are taking advantage of our energy resources and overusing them on a day-to-day basis.
However, saving energy and investing in renewable energy programs is not just a benefit to the world around us―it is also very smart for our homes, businesses and our wallets!
Energy efficiency is one of the fastest and most affordable ways to increase the amount of energy that is available for you to use, without having to deepen your wallet. In fact, according to the Department of Energy’s Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy program, Americans saved $7 billion on energy bills in 2004 simply by utilizing energy saving measures.
To help ensure that we are doing our part to make the world more eco-friendly, as well as make sure that we are providing high-quality toys that do not overuse energy, we here at Laser Pegs are taking steps to reduce electricity through our eco-friendly offices and toys. Here is a little more information about our going green efforts:
Our Laser Pegs Toys
While our light-up Laser Pegs toys feature some of the brightest, high-quality LED lights available, they were actually developed to draw in very little current. This gives the pieces a long life expectancy of 100,000 hours, which is equivalent to keeping them illuminated non-stop for 11 years. Many of our Laser Pegs toys also run on batteries, reducing the need for electricity all together!
However, to get the most out of your Laser Pegs and to get optimum energy efficiency, we also recommend connecting Laser Pegs to one of our helpful AC adaptors. These not only allow for maximum brightness, but also help manage the low voltage current perfectly.
We are excited to announce that Laser Pegs has recently signed a contract with Green Secure Energy Solutions in order to make all of our warehouses and offices entirely GREEN compliant with LED lighting. Not only will this reduce our electricity use by more than half the costs, but it will also save us energy and extend the lifetime of valuable equipment.
According to a worldwide lighting study conducted by the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB), the market adoption of energy-efficient white-light LEDs could save the equivalent of 380 new power stations in general illumination applications around the globe. We are excited to be taking this powerful step forward to help reduce our energy day-by-day.
