Christmas Light Trade-In Event
Trade In Old Christmas Lights for New Savings
Perhaps no color represents the holidays better than green. Trees, wreaths, wrapping paper and now, eco-minded homeowners are ‘going green’ by exchanging their old incandescent holiday light strings for energy efficient LED strings.
The fourth annual Christmas Light Trade-In Program from The Home Depot provides the opportunity to recycle incandescent lights and receive a discount of up to $5 off of ENERGY STAR qualified decorative LED lights, which use 65 percent less energy.
When an estimated 100 million decorative lights will be sold
in the U.S. this year, that energy savings adds up quickly.
In addition to saving money, LED lights are better for the environment, with fewer greenhouse gas emissions. So make Santa proud and visit your local The Home Depot store between Nov. 1 and Nov. 14, 2012, to recycle old incandescent lights and feel extra festive when you decorate with your new eco-friendly LED light strings this holiday.
LED Trade in (11/1-11/14) LED Light Exchange this year features tiered levels:
• $3 off
Home Accents Holiday
• $4 off MSL and GE
• $5 off EcoSmart and Lightshow
*(Limited to five discounts per customer)
Energy Efficiency Facts:
• LED decorative light strings are ENERY STAR qualified and use 65 percent less energy than a regular incandescent light string.
• If every decorative light string purchased in the United States this year earned the ENERGY STAR, we would:
o Prevent 1 billion pounds of greenhouse gas emissions per year, equivalent to the emissions from about 95,000 cars.
o Save more than 700 million kWh/yr of electricity.
o Save about $80 million in annual energy costs.
• One hundred million decorative light strings will
be sold in the United States this year. These
light strings have the potential to consume 1 billion kWh/year, costing U.S. consumers over $100 million in electricity costs.
