How Your Lighting can be More Compassionate for Humans and the Environment
Protecting the night sky is a simple yet effective way of conserving biodiversity. Of course, complete darkness is best at night, but opting for warmer lighting is the next best thing since it supports the biological rhythms of humans, plants and animals.
The TrueLight Luna Red™ Sunset Sleep Light Bulb has adjustable color temperature settings between 3000K (equivalent to evening dusk), and 1000K (a warm red for late at night). This specific color range, combined with built-in dimming, provides ideal light exposure for regulating circadian rhythms and helping the body wind down at night. Unlike conventional lighting solutions that emit junk light and negatively impact melatonin production, this special late-night spectrum does not emit wavelengths that lessen sleep quality. The TrueLight Luna Red™ Sunset Sleep light bulb simulates natural, relaxing light from candles and is ideal for a variety of indoor and outdoor living spaces (e.g. bedrooms, bathrooms, hallways, nurseries, porches, decks, exterior lighting fixtures and outdoor walkways).
For those weekends when you’re out camping, having a portable and warmer light source on hand is extremely convenient and compassionate too! The TrueLight Luna Red® Nightlight + Flashlight is a motion-sensing device that minimizes brightness and emits red light only to help keep your sleep/wake cycle on track in the evenings.
In thinking about the light around your home or campsite, just remember this:
“Light can make people feel good and bring people together, but we need to think carefully about when and where we use it.” – Christopher Kyba, a researcher at the German Research Center for Geoscience(10)
