Christmas time is a wonderful opportunity to find creative eco friendly solutions as a family. Real Mom Daily has created a family friendly countdown to a greener Christmas to share with your family!
Compared to traditional Christmas lights, LED lights use a lot less electricity. Because they are cool operating and break resistant they present less of a fire hazard around your home. According to General Electric, most strands cost less than a dollar per season to operate. LED lights also have a 20,000 hour average life making them last 10 times longer than the average bulb in traditional Christmas lighting. You can even get solar LED lights now which eliminates the need for an electrical outlet. These come in super handy with holiday wreaths on the front door as well as centerpieces on a dining room table.
