  • The Environmental Story

    CFLs last 10 times longer and use up to 80% less energy than incandescent bulbs. The precious and toxic trace amount of mercury within, the glass tubes and ballast are all recyclable and require proper disposal.

    Did You Know?

    Fluorescent bulbs and tubes contain mercury. Mercury exposure can be highly toxic.
