There's certainly nothing wrong with a little more green-o-vation around here and picking up a set of eco-friendly lighting certainly doesn't hurt. If you're in a budget, you can check out IKEA's latest offering of home office lamps, the SOLIG collection, which allows for sunlight energy harvesting during the day via solar cells and provides brightly lit LED lighting at night.
