Everyone understands that ecologically friendly lighting is great for utility bills and the environment and its potential health benefits aren’t as widely known. Although turning on an LED light bulb isn’t going to magically cure your cold or give you superpowers, there’s ample evidence to support the idea that it can improve your overall well being.
You certainly have heard a lot about the advantages of LED lighting systems. In contrast to the traditional and fluorescent lights, LED lights are energy efficient and are safe for the environment too. However, most of us are unaware of the sustainability of these lights in the cold weather. Here is a detailed overview.
Why is Recycling of CFLs Important?
Fluorescent bulbs emit dangerous gas and mercury into the environment when they break. Dumping these bulbs in the trash or a compactor often break these bulbs. In the end, these bulbs reach a landfill or incinerator after being thrown into a dumpster. Recycling is the safest and highly recommended method to treat these bulbs. In this way, CFLs will not release any harmful gas or mercury to the environment. The materials used for making these bulbs can be reused too. In addition, all components of a fluorescent bulb can be easily recycled.
