Toshiba, the electronics and lighting manufacturing giant, has officially discontinued manufacturing incandescent light bulbs. Over the last 120 years Toshiba has produced and shipped over 4.07 billion incandescent light bulbs, and their decision to focus now on LED and CFL lighting means they'll reduce their CO2 emissions by about 430,000 tons per year.
This is probably just the beginning. As more countries start banning incandescents, we're pretty sure other companies are going to follow in Toshiba's footsteps.
