According to foreign media reports, it seems that the popularity of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) has played a very positive role in environmental protection. According to a recent survey by IHS Markit, LED lamps(Plastic with Aluminum LED Light Bulb supplier) used to quantify building and outdoor lighting have reduced their carbon dioxide emissions by about 570 million tons in 2017. This equates to about 1.5% of the global carbon footprint.

In order to be more imaged, IHS made a special analogy, which in part reduced the amount of CO2 equivalent to turning 162 coal-fired power plants off.



It is understood that, in the case of the same light, LED lamps(LED bulbs for home) use 40% less electricity than fluorescent lamps and 80% less than incandescent lamps. As pointed out by Jamie Fox, principal analyst of IHS Lighting and LED Light Team, LED's efficiency is the essence of environmental protection.

LEDs, among others, have many advantages over traditional bulbs such as its longer life, which means fewer people will need to produce a smaller number of bulbs to reduce greenhouse gas emissions during manufacturing, shipping, and sales, Pollution. More importantly, unlike fluorescent lamps, LED lamps(plastic and aluminum LED bulbs) do not contain toxic chemical mercury.
