As is well-known today, traditional incandescent lightbulbs turn about five to ten percent of the energy they consume into light and the rest is lost as heat. This rather low bench mark serves a great way to gauge how eco-friendly your lighting options are.
1. CFL bulbs. If you’re looking for an option that still shines with a warm glow, CFL (compact florescent) bulbs are the perfect option for you. They are usually in the shape of tiny globes that look like a cone of soft-served ice-cream, but they are also available in a number of different forms as well and will definitely cut your energy bills down.
2. LED. LEDs (light emitting diodes) are both an extremely energy efficient and extremely long-lasting light bulb. When compared to traditional bulbs they save up to 80-90% of energy
3. Find clean energy sources. The most productive thing you can do is look for clean energy sources, whether its solar, wind, biogas. Despite investing in more eco-friendly a proper way to dispose of bulbs has not yet been created, and until then finding cleaner energy sources will mean really counteracting the negative effects we have on the environment.
