1,000,000 Free Efficient Light bulbs for Earth Day!

22 04 2007

Home Depot is giving away 1,000,000 compact flourescent light bulbs (CFLs) today for Earth Day. Just show up at any Home Depot nationwide for your free one (they usually cost up to $10 a pack).

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.

I want to know if a flourescent light bulb for chanderliers are made. They have a very small end compared with a regular bulb.
I would appreciate a response.
Thanks in advance.

light bulbs are good for lighting the home but stay away from incandescent lamps because they generate so much heat ,”,
