Do your customers ask about the environmental impact of their new lighting? "Green" is being used a lot in marketing these days... it's a vague concept for most, but it seems to me everyone would probably (in theory) like to be "greener"... Or do I just have a skewed view because I'm here hugging trees and crunching my granola on the left coast of California? How about the consumption of energy over the life of a system when using higher voltages? LEDs vs. incandescents vs. fluorescents vs.? How about the carbon impact? Transporting goods manufactured overseas? How about the environmental standards in North America vs. those in Asia for dealing with hazardous chemicals? How about the mining and smeltering of aluminum vs.copper vs. brass (copper + zinc) or bronze (copper + tin + lead) compared to the manufacturing of composites? What got me thinking about this was a thread over at www.landscapeconstructionsite.com regarding sustainable landscapes. That plus it's rainy today and I've been doing some homework looking at lighting websites.
