For those I frightened, a public service announcement

Now that I went all Chicken Little on you (you know, the sky is falling and it is chock-full of neurotoxin), I wanted to conclude the lightbulb chatter with just a few things:
  • Click here if you need to dispose of a broken bulb, or in our case, charred bulb. (It also states here that CFL are required to be self-extinguishing.)

  • Come here when you need to dispose of a bulb, be it now or when it finally burns out when you are footing the kids' college education.

  • And to learn more about mercury and bulbs, here's a study for your consideration.

Now we can resume our natural blogging lives. Carry on. In the dark.

Thank you for the links. I recently switched out every bulb in our home to these energy saving bulbs (no, our PG&E bill did NOT go down) but it makes me feel all warm & fuzzy inside knowing I'm doing something good for the environment (until that is, I read about the mercury! can we never win?)
