I bought a pkg of CFL bulbs , before I realized they contained mercury. Please read this blog ~ http://doing-it-naturally.blogspot.com/2009/03/compact-fluorescent-lamps-cfls.html , she has alot of info about these bulbs and why we should reconsider using them.
I will not purchase anymore , I'll save energy by keeping the lights turned off , unless I actually need them. I for one , don't believe there is a safe way to dispose of them , sooner or later they will harm the environment . I see no reason to save energy , but create another problem in the future. Do you think everyone will dispose of CFL's properly?
Hopefully , there will be a better solution in the future. What are your thoughts about CFL's?
