The Diffrient Light and the Environment:

The Right Material: All Humanscale task lights are constructed primarily of 100% recycled aluminum. In addition to a high scrap value that increases the likelihood of recycling, the energy required to recycle aluminum is just 5% of that used to produce virgin aluminum.


The Right Bulb: Not only do compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs) save money, they save energy too. Using just 25% of the energy of comparable incandescent bulbs,

CFLs give off 75% less heat, and last up to ten times longer. They’re also 50 to 100% more energy efficient than LEDs.


Earn LEED Credits: The Diffrient Light contains 77% LEED recycled content, and can help a project achieve LEED credits in a number of categories:

  • ID Credit 1.1 - 1.4, Innovation in Design: Ergonomics Strategy

  • MR Credit 4.1, Recycled Content, 10%

  • MR Credit 4.2, Recycled Content, 20%

  • EA Credit 1.1, Optimize Energy Performance, Lighting Power

  • EQ Credit 6.1, Controllability of Systems, Lighting
