Follow up to Compact Fluorescents – Making the right choice

It seems that sometimes the information on a particular subject comes in streams over several days instead all at once and it is certainly the case about CFL’s.

Ecogeek.org has a great article (http://www.ecogeek.org/content/view/2509/) on how to convince your friends to take the plunge into the world of more efficient lighting choices.

Excerpt: “In the fourth quarter of 2008, one out of every four bulbs sold in the U.S. were compact fluorescents. For the last five years, one out of every one bulbs I’ve bought have been compact fluorescents. What is up?

How have incandescent lights managed to hold on for so long? I’m going to do a little bit of guessing here, but this article, I hope, will help explain the resistance.

Also on Ecogeek.org another report is brought forward giving the good, the bad and the ugly about CFL’s. (http://www.ecogeek.org/content/view/2507/) The report mentioned in the article is also found here: http://www.ewg.org/node/27399 It’s a great shopper’s guide to help us all get the best product and value when making greener lighting choices!

As always I thank you for your time and interest. Please take the time to Digg, Stumble Upon or add to the other social network of your choice to help me spread the word about these issues. Please forward any questions or suggestions to: askthefm@gmail.com
