Tripping the lights- Eco Style!

You know those crazy people you see on tv who have ridiculous amounts of lights (thousands) that are coordinated to music? My little internal dialogue vacillates between: "Wow that is SO NEAT!" to "How wasteful is that? So much energy used".

Well- this family in a small Nova Scotian village, has created a fabulous Yulemas light show and not only are all 28,000 lights LED, but money is raised every year for a local charity.

For the amazing video, click to the Chronicle Herald page!

Although those lights do use extra energy, only 125$ extra on his energy bill a month instead of the hundreds regular lights would cost.

This is a wonderful example of how being a tree-hugger can still be extraordinary, eco and save you money!
