How Sol Luminaire Supports the Sustainability Movement This Earth Day

“Invest in Our Planet” is the theme of this year’s Earth Day movement, which encourages businesses and individuals alike to play a part in building a prosperous and equitable future. 

One of the ways to achieve this  — and one of the hottest topics of the 2020’s so far — is through sustainability in the form of conscious buying. 

How can sustainability be put into practice? Switching off your lights may be an annual Earth Day practice to s"How can sustainability be put into practice?"ome, but did you know that Sol Luminaire already plays a part in the movement by encouraging conscious buying through quality materials, sustainable design, and Chip-on-Board (COB) LED?

The Halo series is a crowd favourite AEON luminaire for its versatile lighting capabilities. The Halo Gypsum allows users to add a personal touch with its customisability. 


Product Longevity

AEON luminaires feature Chip-on-Board (COB) LED, which have gained popularity for their design flexibility, light colour variety, and most importantly, more environmentally friendly benefits. Known to be extremely durable and longer-lasting than incandescent bulbs, Chip-on-Board (COB) LED feature lighting durations of tens of thousands of hours, while using significantly less energy with the same power. Needless to say, it will be several years (or over a decade) before your AEON luminaires burn out and require repairs or replacements.

Cutting Back on Waste

A key aspect of sustainability is reducing waste —which is exactly what happens when you use AEON luminaires. Conventional light bulbs are typically thrown away without a second thought, but AEON luminaires feature components that can be upcycled, repaired, or disposed of properly. Moreover, AEON LED last longer than conventional bulbs, meaning less need for replacements, resulting in less waste ending up in landfills. With no need for constant bulb changes or repairs, AEON luminaires also result in fewer carbon emissions from production and delivery processes, an aspect often overlooked by customers. 

Despite its minute size, the Halo Mini Adjust features impressive lighting functions and capabilities; an efficient luminaire for any room or space.


Cost Effective Long-term

With sustainability comes transparency — at face value, the cost of AEON luminaires are steeper than what’s offered on the market, however opportunity cost is factored in lighting performance and quality materials of our luminaires. With AEON luminaires, you get to enjoy the above mentioned benefits, while also saving on extra costs in the long run-- thanks to AEON's COB LED energy efficiency solution, and no need for frequent maintenance. When you purchase AEON luminaires, you’re really buying more for less.
