I’m always excited when I hear of a new, innovative product. Now, when that product is also extremely eco friendly, I tend to like it that much more.
Many of us, especially those of us with kids, have ‘night lights’ plugged in around the house. Whether its to scare away the boogy man or simply to assist in finding your way to the washroom, or to the kitchen for a midnight snack of organic corn chips, nightlights are a common gadget found in nearly every household.
Not long ago, I was contacted by Tim Lemaster, and inventor with a particular fascination for things that glow. For 14 years, Tim researched and performed many trials in order to achieve this great energy saving product.
After-Lite Energy-Free Lighting works exactly as it sounds like it should. Tim has managed to take what some used to see only as a gimick and turned it around to become what may be one of the easiest ways to live greener, more energy-efficient lifestyles.
The afterlite is a small disk which clips on to the top of a common, spiral style compact fluorescent light bulb. You turn the light on as usual and all the while, the little disk on top is charging up. When you turn off the light, the afterlite disk begins to glow.
Tim offered a couple of these to me, and I couldn’t resist the opportunity to try them out for myself. When they arrived, I opened the package, and quickly tried to decide where I should install these nifty glowing things! I opted for my stairway and my washroom. I figured it would be a good idea to keep them out of rooms where there would be times that you wanted complete darkness…..such as your bedroom, or possibly your living room where watching a movie may be hindered by the glowing of the afterlite.
All in all, I’m really impressed with this product!
I’d like to congragulate Tim on behalf of Green Home Hints for inventing one of the most interesting, and extremely useful energy saving products that we’ve seen in a long time!
