Incandescent Light Bulbs Gone for Good?

Store shelves containing primarily incandescent light bulbs are a rare sight these days, due to the 2007 energy conservation measure passed by Congress. This measure set standards to essentially ban incandescent lights by 2013, requiring households to make the switch to more energy efficient lights. With incandescents out, fluorescent lamps and CFLs continue to grow in popularity, providing energy and greenhouse gas emission savings.

However, even though fluorescent lamps and CFLs have proven their energy savings, many consumers are worried about their mercury levels and the potential health, safety and environmental issues caused by mercury vapor emitted from broken lamps. With proper storage, transportation and disposal, fluorescent lights can be a green and safe lighting solution. Learn more about safe packaging, and get ready to make the switch.
