How to be more sustainable with Accio

Sustainability is at the forefront of Accio’s mission. Choosing us as a smart home brand will not only make your life easier and home more beautiful, but will also mean you will be taking active steps in reducing your impact on the planet!

Here are a few ways that joining the Accio smart home movement will help:

1. Lower CO2 emissions with energy efficient lighting

Our smart lights are all LED, using 90% less energy than a regular CFL, incandescent or halogen bulb. The energy they emit is 80% light as opposed to a halogen bulb, whose energy emission is 80% heat. If all 28 million homes in Britain switched to 100% LED bulbs, we could save 1.7 million tonnes of CO2 emissions annually (Energy Saving Trust). If you replace all the bulbs in your home with LED lights, you could reduce your carbon dioxide emissions by up to 65kg a year. This is equivalent to the carbon dioxide emitted by driving your car around 220 miles (Energy Saving Trust).

2. Less waste with recyclable packaging

We are set apart from other smart light brands in that all of our packaging is 100% zero plastic and recyclable.

3. Less to landfill with longer lifespan

The lifespan of our lightbulbs range between 15000-30000 hours, compared to only 2000-5000 hours for halogen bulbs.

And did you know? You are also supporting reforestation as Accio is a friend of Treedom (see here).

We are, and will always run our business in line with our life values - with style, transparency and a sustainable outlook.
