Recycled Traffic Lights

So, LED technology is producing more eco friendly lighting and this includes traffic lights.

You might have noticed that many city traffic lights are now using LED clusters instead of coloured glass shades over a white light bulb.

These are appearing all over the place now – you don’t have to replace them so often, they are bright and use less energy.

The downside is that thousands of old light fittings are being thrown away as cities upgrade to the new technology. In the USA truckloads go to landfill. An American company, based in San Francisco, is taking advantage of this and reclaiming them to make stylish, retro, light fittings.
