Eco friendly LED lighting technology

I’m passionate about solving problems and doing my part to make our world a better place. My passions focus on areas that include disease prevention through nutrition, green living, renewable energy, consumer safety, animal welfare and more. For the past four years, my efforts have focused primarily on education, grassroots activism and content creation. Today, I’m expanding the scope of these efforts with the launch of two new for-profit entities that aim to deliver practical yet innovative products that help people live healthier, more sustainable lives in harmony with our planet.

The two companies are:

EcoLEDs (www.EcoLEDS.com) – A manufacturer of mercury-free, energy-efficient LED lighting products using breakthrough technology to deliver the most environmetally-friendly lighting products in the world. These LED lights, which replace regular light bulbs in homes and offices worldwide, greatly reduce CO2 emissions, save money on electricity and contain no mercury like compact fluorescent light bulbs do.

Better Life Goods- An online retailer of innovative products for sustainable living. Currently, Better Life Goods carries our EcoLEDs lighting products and superior quality NiMH rechargeable batteries that offer tremendous savings in both money and natural resources compared to throwaway alkaline batteries. We also carry a new, breakthrough NiMH battery charger with a super bright backlight display and the ability to refresh old NiMH batteries.

As we add more products in the coming weeks, you’ll see an assortment of unique solutions for green living, energy conservation, personal safety and much more. (This retailer will never carry vitamins, herbs or nutritional supplements, by the way. I’m happy to recommend other sources for those products.)

Introducing RoHS compliance

Both EcoLEDs and Better Life Goods offer products adhering to strict RoHS guidelines. That’s the new European standard called Reduction of Hazardous Substances. It means our products contain no mercury, cadmium lead or other toxic chemicals or heavy metals. As far as I know, we are currently the only consumer products company in the United States that has gone to the trouble (and expense) of manufacturing and selling RoHS-certified products.

Since these rules are not required in the United States, most retailers pay no attention to them and keep selling products made with mercury and other toxic substances. But because I’m such a proponent of protecting both nature and human health, I insist on sourcing RoHS-certified products wherever possible.
