Night lights aren't just for the children in our lives; they illuminate a dark hallway, a bathroom or are just there to greet you when you arrive home past dark. These little charms can warm your space without using much electricity, if any, at all. Here you'll find a wide-range of eco-friendly night lights—from the delicacy of handcrafted glass to the ambiance of glowing moon jars.
1. Mariposa Avenue: Upcycled soup cans turned night lights are available in a variety of colors, designs, and sizes from Mariposa Avenue's online Etsy store. The "Yellow Mini Swirl Night Light" is available for $12 while the "Red Round Flower Night Light" costs $15. All of Mariposa Avenue night lights are sold with light-sensing detectors so they only illuminate when a room is darkened.
2. Sassy Glass Studio: The "Peacock Blue Fused Glass Night Light" plus many more handmade glass designs and custom options are available from this Knoxville, Tennessee artist for just $20.
3. "Glow Bricks" from Think Geek: On sale from $19.99 to $24.99 (depending on color), this glow-in-the-dark light bulb is encased in a solid acrylic brick. Not-to-worry though, this bulb won't burn out over time. It's filled with energy-creating powder that illuminates in the dark after being exposed to a full day's sun.
4. Sun and Moon Jars from Think Geek: Created from traditional Mason jars, "Sun and Moon Jars" can take on a life of their own, dramatically changing an interior room's nighttime lighting. These high-tech, energy-efficient lights charge when placed in sunlight, powering the jar's three LEDs for several hours once the day's light disappears. The moon and sun's glow is diffused by the jar's frosted glass, providing ambiance like no other.
