A pair of neon lights might look cool, but they’re a total waste of energy and don’t produce a noticeable amount of light.
In this article, we’ll look at why they’re so bad for the environment and how to save them.
Read moreThe Neon Lights and Their Environmental ImpactIf you’re a fan of neon light, you’ll likely agree with me when I say they’re not bright enough.
It’s the bright white light that makes neon lights so popular.
But that’s not all!
They’re also very flimsy, which makes them susceptible to breaking, and they emit a lot of pollution.
You might think that neon lights would be less of a problem than they are, but that’s just not true.
Nimbus, which is a kind of mercury-based light that’s used in the home, has been linked to cancer.
According to the EPA, up to 1,500 tons of mercury are released into the environment every year.
According the World Health Organization, up until 2012, over 50 million people worldwide were living with mercury-related illnesses.
That doesn’t mean we should give up on neon lights, but it’s certainly not a good sign for the future of the environment.
