From the Manufacturer
Balancing the needs of performance, efficiency and environmentally responsible usage and manufacturing, Sylvania EcoBright headlights are the right bulbs for drivers hoping to see more clearly. The Sylvania 9005 EB HB3 BP 12 twin pack features two headlight bulbs rated 25% brighter than standard bulbs, use up to 21% less energy, reduce CO2 emissions and virtually pay for themselves in fuel savings. Couple this with the environmentally sound practices used in their manufacture and you have the perfect choice for drivers as equally concerned about their impact on the planet as they are about visibility on the road.

The Environmental Choice in Automotive Lighting
With million upon millions of vehicles around the world on the road both night and day, the need for safe and effective automotive lighting is an undeniable necessity. Yet the equally clear realities of ever shrinking resources worldwide, higher energy costs and environmental impacts linked to human actions demand a balance between the needs of drivers and responsible stewardship of the environment for current and future generations. Thankfully drivers looking for a green alternative today can achieve just such a balance with Sylvania EcoBright headlights.
Sylvania EcoBright headlights are designed from the ground up to provide drivers with excellent down-road and side-road visibility with a brightness rating that is 25% higher than an aged standard bulb. EcoBright bulb's low operational wattage also allows for energy conservation, resulting in the use of 9% to 21% less energy than SAE maximum design specifications. This decreased use of energy by vehicle electrical systems leads to monetary saving in fuel, estimated between $2 - $19 over the life of a pair of headlight bulbs, which in turn equates to reduced CO2 emissions by your vehicle. In addition to the environmentally beneficial features of the use of EcoBright bulbs, they are manufactured and packaged with environmental responsibility in mind. EcoBright headlights are mercury free, cadmium free, and lead free and are manufactured in facilities dedicated to limiting contaminants. This means cleaner water and air, now and forever. Finally, Sylvania packages its products using paperboard packaging containing up to 100% post-consumer recycled fiber (depending on type), and 40% less plastic per year than the previous packaging. Together this reduces the amount of raw materials needed and increases the number of products that can be shipped at a time, improving transportation efficiency and reducing fuel usage and associated air pollution.

Let's agree with the marketers for a minute that they actually will save you $19 over the life of the set of bulbs because the lower wattage puts less of a load on the alternator. How much is that? 20 ounces of fuel every 10,000 miles? Yeah, that'll save the planet
Yout alternator is running anyway to keep the car running so I don't see how lower amperage bulbs will help, want to save fuel? Turn your ac off tree huggers! Ac in ny truck is rolling the windows down and opening the vents lol
