Energy-saving holiday lights
Get your glow on with these eco-minded LED, solar, and rechargeable lights
Eco-friendly options include outdoor solar or LED string lights, rechargeable indoor-outdoor votives, flameless indoor tea lights, and more.
LED bulbs use 1/50 of the electricity of traditional holiday lights, and they can last up to 30 years.
For even more energy savings, attach light strings to a timer (about $9 from Environmental Lights).
