Project Sustainability

Each month, the show welcomes a new guest who will unpack a specific topic, spanning multiple episodes. Host Peggy Smedley will dive into her guest’s desire to provide alternatives that will empower each of us on what it means to have a healthy home. Simply all the innovations from energy, air, water, lighting, security, appliances, and more that impact our homes.

With a focus on technology—and how it works in the home—listeners will gain a deeper understanding of what’s coming next and what’s already possible today. Determined to give a glimpse into the future, Smedley ends every series with the same question: How can we do even more simply by managing our energy consumption to help make the world healthier, safer, and greener today and for future generations?

Peggy Smedley and Martin Moore-Ede, director, Circadian Light Research Center, talk about the importance of circadian light. He says we have had a revolution in lighting. Lighting used to be pretty simple, but about 2013 a revolution took place when LEDs (light emitting diodes) came into the market.

They also discuss:

  • The percentage of LEDs in 2013 compared to today.
  • The advantages of LEDs and the downside that has been overlooked until recently.
  • How to have a healthy home and find the right lights.
