Google gives the Best Present to All It’s Employees: Green Lighting!

Lemnis Lighting, a leader in LED lighting, in 2009 announced that Google Inc. selected the Pharox LED light bulb as a gift for Google employees as part of its “Going Green at Google” initiative. This green benefit will enable Google employees around the world to create greater sustainability at home as well as the office.

“Google supports innovative and responsible environmental practices across our company, including helping our employees stay green,” said Lacy Caruthers, a member of Google’s Green Business Operations team. “Lemnis Lighting’s Pharox LED bulb is modern and earth-friendly and we’re excited for Google employees to try it out.”

The Pharox looks like a stylish update to the traditional incandescent bulb as shown on the cover of my Green Lighting book and uses 80% less energy, (5 watts of energy and lasts up to 34 years– that’s up to 34 times longer than an incandescent bulb and up to eight times longer than a CFL bulb. The best part is that unlike CFL bulbs, the Pharox LED bulb provides instant light, contains no mercury and is entirely recyclable.

“At Lemnis Lighting, we are committed to devising solutions that enhance the quality of life while reducing the carbon footprint of everyday living,” said Frans Otten, chairman of Lemnis Lighting. “To provide a sense of the impact Pharox LED bulbs can have, consider this: if every American household switched four 40W light bulbs to Pharox LED bulbs, the United States would save $113 billion
in energy costs over the lifetime of the Pharox bulbs.”
