Why Incandescent Light Bulbs Are So 2011 [Infographic] | Care2 Causes

It is a real concern to think that burned out bulbs are ending up in our landfills were eventual breakage will allow mercury into our groundwater, rivers and water supply as well. The general population is not aware that these bulbs need to be turned in to appropriate collection sites instead of just tossed away. In time the cost of LED's will come down. Friends of mine have replaced their whole house with LED's at great expense, but want to keep mercury out of their home environment. Kudos to them. I have replaced all my Christmas tree decorations/lights with LED's and have used them for 3 years now. My home is solar powered so love that they use less energy. I use flashlights with LED bulbs also. Eventually every light in my home will be LED. Even slow change is change for the better!
