50 Eco-Friendly Products Selected by Green Builder's Editors


These lamps provide incandescent-like dimming, by shifting color temperature from 3000 K to 2000 K as they dim. With a rated life of 25,000 to 50,000 hours, lamps in this family use up to 80 percent less energy than incandescent lamps. They also contain no mercury or lead.

“We got a chance to try out some of the new dimmable LED lamps included in this ‘family.’ What you get is a really nice, mood-setting amber glow at lower dimmer settings, and a nice, bright-white light at full-on. This is exactly the kind of breakthrough we’ve been waiting for from LED manufacturers. Farewell CFLs—long live LEDs!”

Incorporating sensor and dimmer benefits in one product saves up to 60 percent in lighting energy. The Lutron Masetro turns lights on when a person enters a room, then turns them off when they leave. Proprietary Advanced XCT sensing technology detects fine motion, so lights stay on in occupied rooms; a patented Ambient Light Detect can also sense daylight, so that lights only turn on when there’s not enough light present. Maestro works with incandescents, CFLs and LEDs.
