Enter to Win My Free Light Fixture Giveaway!
My first contest!
I guess my blog has grown to the level where it is attracting more than just readers. I feel like I should get it a virtual birthday cake or something. I was recently approached by a company called CSN lighting about doing a free giveaway of one of their light fixtures in exchange for posting a short article about their product on this blog. Being me, always trying to make the world a bit greener, I asked them what their greenest product was. I wanted to at least give away something green if I could! According to them, the light fixture we’ve arranged to give away is their greenest product. Have a look at it by clicking here. Those prices are in US dollars so we’re not talking about a cheap light fixture here.
How to enter:
-Go to my contact page on my main website
-Fill out the contact form with your correct email address and phone number and the subject “Light Fixture Giveaway”.

Here is the article they wanted to me to post for them:
Eco-friendly ENERGY STAR Lighting
For the past few years, “green” has been the color on everyone’s mind. Given the state of the environment today, the demand for green products is greater than ever. ENERGY STAR is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy that is designed to help consumers cut energy costs and at the same time help protect the environment.
According to ENERGY STAR, in 2008, Americans were able to save $19 billion on their utility bills by using ENERGY STAR compliant products. ENERGY STAR estimates that “families can save about a third on their energy bill without sacrificing style or comfort.”
Look for the ENERGY STAR logo on a full range of household products and appliances – everything from home lighting and personal computers to washers, dryers and furnaces.
As one of ENERGY STAR’s charter partners, Sea Gull Lighting further solidifies its reputation in the lighting industry by offering consumers high quality, stylish and environmentally friendly products. Sea Gull’s line of energy-saving fluorescent products is available in chandeliers, pendants, wall sconces, vanity bath lights, outdoor lighting and more.
ENERGY STAR compliant fluorescent fixtures use 75% less energy than incandescent fixtures. They are also cooler and last on average, about 9 years. The Metropolis Fluorescent Wall Sconce comes with a beautiful brushed nickel finish and a satin etched glass shade. When it comes to lighting your home, stylish and green is the way to go!
