3M LED advanced light

Saving energy shouldn’t mean compromising quality and safety.

The 3M LED advanced light uses nearly 80 percent less energy than a traditional incandescent light bulb. That means lowered fuel consumption and carbon emissions at the power plant, and smaller electricity bills at home. The 60W equivalent 3M LED light can save consumers up to $140 of electricity over the bulb’s lifetime.

What’s the catch? There is none. Thanks to 3M technology, the bulb emits beautiful, natural-looking light. It turns on instantly, contains no mercury, and it lasts up to 25 years.

Save money and save energy. Replace your incandescent and compact fluorescent bulbs with the efficient, safe, beautiful 3M LED advanced light.
