dc.description.abstract LED lighting and sustainable design have become quite popular in recent years. Long lifetime, energy efficiency, durability, lack of UV emissions, low voltage, and flexibility in design are only some of the many benefits of utilizing LED lights. Issues of sustainability have sparked an interest in reusing and recycling commonly thrown away household materials such as papers, plastics, and glass. Together, LED lighting and recycled materials could provide an inexpensive alternative to many unsustainable lighting products bought in-store. Using only LED lights, plastic bottles, and small amounts of adhesives, original lighting designs may be created. I have developed a design for small portable lights that explores various characteristics of LEDs and plastics, considers individual users' skillsets and design preferences, and provides profitable opportunities for creators. en_US
