More Earth Day FreebiesApril 21, 2009 at 12:01 pm | Posted in Deals | 3 Comments
It’s Christmas in April, as HolidayLEDs.com is giving away free LED holiday lights in honor of Earth Day. It’s the e-commerce retailer’s second year of doling out the freebies.
Starting at 10 a.m. EST tomorrow (April 22), HolidayLEDs.com will give away one set of solar-powered LED Christmas lights to the first sixty visitors. According to a press release, “The free light sets are a 200 light LED Christmas light set that operates entirely from solar power. Because the super-efficient LEDs draw so little power they can operate using a very small solar panel. Only 60 sets are available and will be given away on a first-come, first-served basis. No purchase is required but participants must pay a shipping charge of $7.99. The solar LED Christmas lights retail for $49.99. In addition to the free solar lights, HolidayLEDs.com is offering 25% off all of its LED lighting products.” Company spokesman Nathan Munro says:
“Last year we celebrated Earth Day by giving away free LED icicle lights but we decided we could go one better and give away solar powered LEDs for this year’s celebration…. The free light giveaway is a lot of fun and last year it was a great success but this year we have also planned a company event to celebrate Earth Day.”
Jackson, Michigan-based HolidayLEDs.com purchased a hundred white pine seedlings from nearby Porcupine Hollow Farm and will plant them in celebration of Earth Day. Munro says: “We all talked about what we wanted to do as a company for Earth Day and planting trees seemed like a bit of a cliché but it really does make a difference for the environment.”
