How To Go Green In Style

These days, a growing number of us are striving to live a cleaner, greener lifestyle. One of the simplest, and most popular ways towards a greener lifestyle is to switch to energy efficient lighting.

At Funky Lampshades we really understand how important good lighting is when creating a relaxing atmosphere or vibrant workplace, even for good home security, but we also know that good lighting doesn’t have to be boring. Take a look at our amazing Bowler Hat lampshades, for example. These amazing designs can incorporate modern day efficiency with British traditions to add a quirky feel to any room.

We have found in recent months there has also been a growth in the number of companies producing eco-friendly light fixtures. Take, for example, the fig range of lamp shades. Not only are these beautifully designed to create an ambient glow, but they are made from strong and durable polypropylene which is also 100% recyclable.


To begin with we recommend reducing your consumption by getting rid of conventional incandescent bulbs – they are a thing of the past. Changing to Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFL) can help to both cut energy consumption and reduce carbon dioxide emissions, and they also last up to 10 times longer than the old bulbs by using between 50% and 80% less electricity.

CFL bulbs give off a warm and natural light that is just as easy, if not easier, to fit than your old bulbs. Why not brighten up that warm light with one of our bright Loopy-Lu lampshades or create a more relaxed atmosphere with our calm and elegant Eos lampshades.

By making this switch in bulbs, you’ll be doing your part to help the changing environment. Alongside this, you could take a look at our durable and long lasting lampshades, which could save you on frequent recyclables, here.
