Home Depot Canada holds holiday light exchange

Further promoting energy-efficient lighting products, Home Depot’s Canadian stores held a “holiday light exchange” this weekend.

Consumers were able to bring in their traditional incandescent holiday lights for a $3-off coupon toward a string of energy-efficient LED lights. The promotion took place Nov. 3 and 4. The company said the LED lights use “80 to 90 percent less energy than traditional light sets.”

The LED lights have been promoted as part of Home Depot’s newly launched Eco Options program, which brands and promotes environmentally friendly products from several product categories.

The company also has been involved in several initiatives promoting the use of compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs as opposed to incandescent indoor lighting.
