Our mission to raise awareness about the junk light problem, and to help people decipher between healthy and harmful lighting so that they can live a healthier life.
Junk light” is man-made light with blue and green hues that tells your body it’s a different time of day than it actually is. Think: fluorescent bulbs, LEDs, and any digital device with an LED screen.
Our society no longer solely relies on the rise and fall of the sun, or fire, to brighten our surroundings. Over time, we have shifted from distinct waking hours and time for sleeping to an always-on culture that encourages us to keep the lights on.
Junk light is everywhere — in our homes, in our places of work, at the gym, in malls, and throughout airports. We also have the power to take technology on-the-go wherever we are with the advent of smartphones, tablets and computers. From the time you wake up in the morning and roll over to check your email to the moment you turn off Netflix in bed at night time, you’re constantly exposed to artificial light. Theoretically, longer hours of light could make humans more productive if they have increased output; however, overexposure to junk light can have detrimental (short-term and long-term) effects on human health.
