Holiday Tip: Turn Out the Lights

Holiday Tip: String Lights
Twinkle lights are festive, but they can also drive up your energy bill. Go with LED string lights that use up to 70% less energy and last longer than traditional conventional incandescent lights. Turning off lights or using a timer to regulate hours is another great way to keep energy consumption down.

Remember too that string lights are NOT recyclable. They are considered a contaminant in your curbside recycling cart and can cause damage to machinery at the recycling facility. They belong in trash.
