All ideas begin with a problem that needs to be solved. In 1992, much of the country was using incandescent light which produces only 5% light and 95% heat. With Marvin Feig (Good Earth Lighting President)’s passion for energy savings, he partnered with Alex Kowalenko (Co-Founder Research & Development) to develop and provide a decorative line of energy-efficient residential products with compact fluorescent lighting technology.
They started in a garage with a desk and sold their first energy-efficient light fixture at True Value. Quickly, they continued to grow product lines and expand into more retailers as the demand for more affordable, customizable, energy-efficient products as we entered the new millennium.
When LED technology became more available, they were speed to market, adapted, and converted to the new LED technology in all lighting fixtures for the residential market. In 2016, Good Earth launched long-lasting USB rechargeable and battery-operated solutions and partnered with Command Strips® by 3M for damage-free mounting solutions to accommodate anyone that loves wireless products that are easily accessible and always available.
