LittleFootprint Lighting Earns Lighting for Tomorrow Award


SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ.—LittleFootprint Lighting, a pioneer of sustainably designed LED task lighting products made in the United States from recycled e-waste, has been awarded Honorable Mention in the Lighting for Tomorrow design competition for its HeronLED Personal Task Light. The Lighting for Tomorrow competition encourages market entrance of well-designed, efficient lighting and recognizes aesthetically pleasing Energy Star lighting products.

Receiving the award at the American Lighting Association’s annual conference in Scottsdale, Ariz., LittleFootprint Lighting CEO Nancy Wahl-Scheurich said, “We are really excited to have the HeronLED recognized not only for its energy efficiency and sustainability, but also for its attractive design. Our goal was to make a task light that would sell not only because it’s environmentally friendly, but because of its excellent functionality and great looks, and this award demonstrates that we’ve done it.”

LittleFootprint Lighting’s HeronLED uses less than one-seventh the energy of a comparable incandescent desk lamp, features a long-lasting and replaceable LED bulb that provides “warm white” light, and is easily adjustable to get the right amount of light where users need it. The body of the lamp is made of recycled plastic harvested from e-waste; the metal base is made from recycled scrap metal; and product manufacturing and fulfillment take place in California. The HeronLED is the first made-in-USA desk lamp to earn the Energy Star under the latest specification.

In offering the HeronLED, LittleFootprint Lighting strives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, keep e-waste out of landfills, and support green jobs in the United States while reducing users’ electricity bills and adding style to the workspace.
