“There are a number of things that you need to do when choosing lights that are good for the environment. You need to look for lighting systems that:
- Don’t have too many LEDs
- Preferably have CFL bulbs (the energy savings pay for the cost of the bulb after 500 hours of use, while they last much longer)
- Come from recycled materials such as reclaimed lenses from traffic lights and glass beverage bottles
- Use the wallwarts
- Can partially power themselves with solar”

Choosing green lights for your kitchen redesign shouldn’t be a daunting task. You want it to look nice but also get the most efficiency with low-power consumption and long-lasting bulbs. There is also natural light to consider, such as sunlight pouring in from your windows.
