How Sengled made a smart lightbulb
showcased its new Element lightbulb at CES 2017 in a model connected home display at Sands Expo. The Element bulb is the world’s first carbon-neutral lightbulb, according to the company. It’s not actually the bulb itself that’s carbon-neutral, but the company’s “One Bulb One Tree” campaign. The Element bulb is so efficient, it produces less carbon than a tree absorbs, and Sengled plants a tree for every lightbulb customers buy. Because each tree can absorb the carbon each lightbulb produces, the bulb effectively has zero carbon footprint.
