Hello blog readers! Zach Goodyear here. I wanted to talk to you about those relatively new swirly light bulbs called Compact Florescent Lights or CFLs. Now that that these bulbs are becoming more popular as a way to save energy, I have been wondering what to do with them when they eventually expire. Because they contain small amounts of mercury, just like any other fluorescent bulbs, it’s not environmentally appropriate to simply throw them in your household trash.
