Every step of the product development was designed around making the BrightShelf® the most sustainable light shelf ever made. BrightShelf® is designed to harness the benefit of daylight harvesting and efficient lighting. These benefits of daylighting are well known to be significant for energy savings, personnel (productivity & health), and the environment (pollution reduction). An ancillary benefit to using light shelves is to the planet. Energy reduction means an overall reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, since less energy is generated. The BrightShelf® also uses materials that are not only made from recycled products, but are also 100% recyclable themselves. A cradle-to-cradle product design is what sets BrightShelf® apart.
