Since 1979, people have been choosing our decorative lamps to light up neighborhoods, personal driveways, and commercial areas. We provide a unique atmosphere with style and charm with our lamps. At an affordable cost, we know you will find something you will love.
In 2008, we wanted to reduce our carbon footprint and minimize light pollution. We have decreased our electrical use with our dark sky-friendly designs by 42%. We want to do our part in reducing carbon emissions that can cause global warming with our dark-sky-friendly lantern lights.
Dark sky friendly lantern lights
Dark sky lights are a trend to help cut down on light pollution. We all love to stargaze, but we also love to see where we are going. These special lantern lights help achieve this goal. Another advantage is reducing things such as glare.
Have you ever been walking down a road, and a bright white light causes an inability to see around you? What about while you are driving? It can get pretty scary when you are driving at night, and suddenly you are not able to see because of a light that is too bright. These night-friendly lights will help in making things more visible, safe, and it is much better for the environment all around.
In conclusion, these special lanterns do several things for all of us. They help reduce emissions and help keep our planet greener. This reduces the dangers of blinding people in the dark but gives enough light to see where you are going. They also give a soft ambiance for when you want to go for that romantic evening stroll through the park or when you want to stay close to the city but still see the stars at night.
