Save on LED Christmas Lights at Home Depot

Most of us are faced with an environmental conundrum  when considering an upgrade to LED Christmas lights.  We could save eighty percent more energy with the LED variety, but that would mean tossing our tangled green strings of lights into the trash.  How is that eco-friendly?

Luckily, Home Depot has a deal that will help us save energy and recycle those pesky old ones—even the defunct strands with burnt out bulbs.

led-Christmas-lightsUntil November 15, take your strings of old holiday lights to Home Depot and receive a $3.00 credit toward a strand of LED lights.  Why would you want to go to all this effort to switch out your stock of holiday lights?  Here are just a few benefits of LED lights:

  • They last up to ten times longer.
  • Because they’re cooler they pose less of a fire risk on a Christmas tree.
  • They don’t have filaments or glass which make them much more durable.
  • As I wrote earlier, they use 80% less energy than traditional holiday lights.

Are you even thinking of Christmas yet?  Are you preparing for the season or just bracing yourself for the holiday consumerism?  (I have to admit I’m doing a little of both!)


  1. Very cool! As far as your question we still buy and get gifts. For me shopping for my hubby is the best part. I try and shop handmade (etsy), make him stuff, make it meaning full and both of us want less stuff we have to store so we try and buy things we need or are very small and useful.

    I also plan to tell people I want donations made in my name to causes like WWF. My husband did this for me for my b-day. 🙂 Last year my brother and I donated to causes for each other and we may again this year.

  2. also has a Christmas light recycling program. This program offers a 15% off coupon for those who participate.

  3. great tip! Thznks

  4. I think there is a company out of Texas that has a similar sort of program…. I think they sell Christmas lighting products online.
