Compact Fluorescent Lightbulbs: Finally Getting Better!

Boston

Be kind people. We’re admitting one of our deepest, darkest eco-guilt secrets on a national website. We’ve only replaced a few of our lightbulbs with the vastly more efficient Compact Flourescent Lightbulbs (CFL’s). And the reasoning may just be as atrocious as the actual lack of replacement…We’re very affected by lighting, and to date, most of the CFL’s have made us feel like we’re in a seedy, demoralizing institution. We know, we know, we know…this is no excuse for obliterating the planet. So imagine our delight when this past Sunday’s Boston Globe magazine revealed a new bulb from Sylvania called Soft White A-Line compact fluorescent (CFL).

If the photo from the Globe article (the same one used for this post) is an accurate depiction, these bulbs look as warm and cozy as standard incandescents. Okay, we hereby commit to finally replacing our energy-greedy standard bulbs.
