Compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs), despite issues around potential mercury exposure if they break, provide one of the easiest and long lasting solutions for those wanting simple ways to go energy efficient at home. Not sure if CFLs are worth your time though? Perhaps you want to try them out before investing in them all around your home? An ongoing initiative brought to our attention by 1 Thing is giving you a chance to light up for free to see if CFLs are the way you want to go.
Energy Efficient Now is running something called the Free Lightbulb Initiative, which is offering to ship to American households in the lower 48 states two free CFL bulbs. This initiative is being undertaken “in an effort to reduce national energy consumption and reduce the amount of harmful gasses released by electricity generation.” These two bulbs you get for free will help you as well “save big money on your electrical bill” – to the tune of “approximately 30$ per bulb.”
Energy Efficient Now says this is a limited offer as it does not have an indefinite supply of CFL bulbs sitting around. The program says as well it will not spam you after you submit your contact information and that it also won’t share your information with anyone else.
