#1 The wha about light bulbs...
So what should the common average joe know about light bulbs so they can make the best purchase for their family and for the environment?
here at Earth 911 or here.
The last concern with fluorescent lights is something called "Short Wave Ultraviolet Light". Each bulb releases a tiny bit of this damaging light, which is the same cancer causing light that comes from the sun. Light bulb technology is getting better every day, and those with the brains are working hard to fix this problem. It's way better then it used to be. Look for plastic coated bulbs (like the kind Ikea sell) if you're concerned.
So what kind of light bulb are you using?
1. Lights Out
2. Gettin Around the EU Ban
3. The end of the lightbulb as we know it
4. How an LED Works
5. Why LED?
