LED Desk Lamp Made from Recycled E-Waste

Made of recycled materials – including plastic recycled from e-waste – and sporting high efficiency LED bulb, the HeronLED is a very green lamp indeed. And, we might add, rather stylish.

This new lamp from California-based LittleFootprint Lighting features an adjustable, ergonomic design, “warm white” light, and a replaceable LED bulb.  According to its manufacturer, the HeronLED uses 7-10 times less energy than your conventional desktop lamp.

While this lovely, bird-like lamp, at $195.00, certainly doesn’t come cheap, LittleFootprint is quick to point out that because the LED bulb here uses a fraction of the energy of an incandescent or even CFL bulb, you’ll see immediately savings on your electricity bill – and over the product’s 17+ year lifespan, those savings will add up.

The HeronLED is made in the USA from recycled plastic and steel, which makes it easy to recycle when this product finally does bite the dust.
