Deck the Halls with LED

GE-lights.jpgWhy It’s Good:

These multi-colored bulbs are larger and have a cool retro-style – great for both the tree and your outdoor decorating.

Why It’s Green:

LED lights use only 10 percent of the power that traditional ones do. Plus, they’ll make your holiday decorating easier – they last about 10 years longer than traditional lights and if one bulb goes out, it doesn’t affect the whole strand!
