Light Pollution

The technology of lighting has been developed to give light a meaning, transforming spaces by giving them a lit atmosphere and to give beauty to a scene.

Many lighting applications and the electricity used to create it, aren’t focusing onto the actual objects and the areas where people want it lit but is being wasted by spilling it into the sky.

The threat of LIGHT POLLUTION continues to grow as the demand for artificial light increases each year.
