How can you tell if your light fixture is eco-friendly?

There are plenty of measures for what can be considered ecologically responsible.

We will happily label low-wattage LED-based fixtures as green, notwithstanding that they were assembled in factories in China and then put on shipping containers and shipped with fossil-fuel-consuming ships halfway across the world.
Well here’s a measure to consider: Howabout a fixture made locally in New York City of a bio-based material based on corn starch, which looks as spectacularly good off as it does on?

Here’s a picture of our new Crystal Gear Pendant in the sunlight. The fixture itself has been switched off:
So if you’re interested in the big-picture on the matter of carbon footprints for the fixtures in your home or office, it is very beneficial to think of factors beyond simple electricity consumption.
