Light and Motion Industries

This Monterey Bay Green Business Program member makes high performance bike headlights and underwater video and digital camera housings and lighting. Their products are manufactured with materials and components sourced from U.S. suppliers and are compliant with the “Directive on the restriction of the use of certain household hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS)”. They use rechargeable batteries and light-emitting diode (LED) lighting rated at over 20,000 hours. In 2011, more than 75% of the bikes they sold were micro- Universal Serial Bus (USB) rechargeable rather than needing a dedicated charger. They recycled 8,417 pounds of scrap aluminum – 39% more than in 2010, saving approximately $4,000. The company replaced their bottled water with on-site water filtration, and held numerous outreach and sponsorship events to promote their sustainable practices. Light and Motion offers employee incentives to commute or cycle to work and provides interior bike parking space. They are reuse experts with everything from packaging to obsolete parts. They use non/low toxic biodegradable products, recycled materials, ENERGY STAR® equipment, and green cleaning solvents.
