Are u ready for LED light bulbs

If you've gone green, then you probably have those curly-cue compact florescent light bulbs hanging from your fixtures. That's wonderful. But what if I told you that there was a new bulb in town that may one day tell CFLs, "C U L8R?"

The new bulb on the block is the LED bulb, and the advantages of LED bulbs are truly staggering. First off, a 1.3-watt LED bulb uses less electricity than both the 60-watt incandescent and the 9-watt CFL bulb. Secondly, LED bulbs last for a long time. How long? Let's just say that you could get married, have a child and go to his or her college graduation without ever changing bulbs. Some bulbs can last up to 100,000 hours, and they are clean. LED light bulbs don't contain mercury like CFL bulbs.

What are Led's ?

Light emitting diodes, commonly called LEDs, are real unsung heroes in the electronics world. They do dozens of different jobs and are found in all kinds of devices. Among other things, they form the numbers on digital clocks, transmit information from remote controls, light up watches and tell you when your appliances are turned on. Collected together, they can form images on a jumbo television screen or illuminate a traffic light.

Basically, LEDs are just tiny light bulbs that fit easily into an electrical circuit. But unlike ordinary incandescent bulbs, they don't have a filament that will burn out, and they don't get especially hot. They are illuminated solely by the movement of electrons in a semiconductor material, and they last just as long as a standard transistor.

How to be green during Halloween

Halloween should be green. From the candy to the costumes to the plastic scary stuff all over lawns, there are plenty of things needing greening.
Here are four cool quick ideas for a green Halloween.
1. Recycle old costumes or plastic scary things you leave on your lawn from years past. That should have been done anyway. If you don't need to go out and buy something why should you? That reduces consumption.
2. Use eco-friendly face paints. Your local health food store or chain like Whole Foods or Mrs. Greens ought to have something for you.
3. Give away wholesome treats. My kids love Halloween for the sugar rush, so at least make it organic or fair trade. Or give something a bit healthier; then you really are giving a treat, not a trick for parents to deal with later.
4. Use LED Halloween lights. LEDs are much more efficient than incandescent bulbs and will reduce your expenses for this holiday in the long run. LEDs last a lot longer than CFL or regular bulbs, so you can light up your home and not scare yourself with the electric bill later in November.
