Everybody knows the difference between how we feel on a bright sunny day versus a dark grey day. One of the reasons for this is the difference in the spectrum between bright sunlight and obscured, or artificial, light. Having evolved millions of years under full sunlight , one would expect this spectrum to be the ideal, balanced and healthy for the human mind and body. Thus to see well and feel good, we need to receive all wavelengths of light. The goal of Viva-Lite® is to offer its customers a balanced source of light, including a continuous balanced light spectrum and temperature, as close to sunlight as possible. And Viva-Lite achieves this with energy-efficiency as well. Viva-Lite is one of the world´s leading suppliers of healthier and greener lighting solutions providing full spectrum daylight and energy-efficient products in form of bulbs, lamps, fixtures and other technology for homes and offices alike. Energy-efficiency and the human health aspects are at the core of Viva-Lite’s business. The energy saving full spectrum daylight bulbs help to increase energy-efficiency and raise working and living standards for people around the world. “Until about one hundred years ago, we spent 90 percent of our daytime outdoors under natural light. Today, it’s quite the opposite. Houses, cars, offices, schools, or shopping malls are all built to be energy-efficient and well insulated, protecting us from the sun’s natural light and warmth. As a result, we are continuously exposed to artificial lighting; it’s no wonder we feel distressed and sometimes depressed.” Toby Ruckert, Founder Viva-Lite® The Viva-Lite energy-saving bulbs offer the full colour spectrum of sunlight, including some vital UV constituents. They are economic and design alternatives to the conventional low-consumption bulbs, with the added healthful advantages of energy-saving performance, visibility and enhanced well-being. The brilliant white light radiates like a ball of light, similar to a light bulb, and offers excellent lighting values. The energy-saving lightbulbs achieve up to 80% energy efficiency compared to conventional bulbs. And Viva-Lite strives to achieve corporate sustainability and environmentally sound practices by reducing the use of toxic substances such as mercury, and working to develop mercury-free alternatives, reducing packaging and waste by using environmentally friendly materials, supporting and promoting safe recycling methods, and avoiding unnecessary CO2 output by intelligent energy consumption, forecasting, optimizing storage, forwarding and warehousing facilities. For the emissions Viva-Lite cannot avoid, they have chosen to partner with Carbonfund.org to offset a portion of their business emissions. “Partnering with Carbonfund.org seemed to be the reliable and proven choice for offsetting emissions generated during the manufacturing process of our products,” says Toby. Viva-Lite also offers news and educational information on its website and via its blog, to help consumers understand the benefits of full spectrum lighting.
