CFL’s consume 75% less electricity and last 10,000 hours to incandescant’s 1500. The company says the energy savings from its giveaway equate to the removal of 70,000 cars from US roads. They’re not as efficient as the new swanky LED bulbs on the market, but still many times better than ye olde Edison bulbs we use now.
Happy Earth Day!
Now Quick! Go drive your CO2 farting SUV to to the mega-mart to puchase yet another electrical device encased in petro-plastic packaging; add another plastic shopping bag; then throw everything (don’t forget the obsolete light bulbs) into a landfill; a.k.a the future site of your children’s elementary school. eLle. Oh. eLle.
