Early last month IKEA became one of the first retailers in the country to stop carrying incandescent light bulbs in favor of CFL and LED bulbs.
Mike Ward, the US IKEA President said “IKEA is committed to integrating sustainable practices into our range and business practices. As the largest home furnishings store, we are constantly looking at ways to help support our customers with every day environmentally responsible solutions that will improve their lives. Eliminating incandescents is just one simple way for IKEA customers to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gases,”
Switching out light bulbs to CFL Energy Star bulbs can save as much as 66% on overall light bulb energy compared to a traditional incandescent bulbs. The new bulbs last as much as 10x linger as well.
Changing out your old light bulbs is a easy way to save both money and energy.
