I have never really given much thought to light bulbs, but lately that has changed. I used to make sure I go the right wattage, and tried to save some money, but that was as far as I thought. Bulbs are, after all, bulbs right? Even when l learned about different types of lighting in college I never really paid attention to what I was putting in my home. That has changed for me recently, and I hope it changes for many others as well.

We have been warned about global warming, and now that things are actually coming true, more are paying attention. It used to be the pet cause of some, but the majority gave it no validity. After all, why give up things that make life easy when there is no proof that this is nothing more than a theory? People are taking it much more seriously now, and some are making a change in regards to the light bulbs we use. It seems like such a small thing, but apparently it might be bigger than we thought.

There are light bulbs now that might have a bit of a sticker shock to them. They are expensive. However, they are going to last a very long time, and they are going to save you money in the long run. They also keep electric bills down, and if everyone put just a few of these in their homes, it could make a huge difference in the state of our world. While I’m not sure about the specifics of how these light bulbs are better, I know that I am willing to do it if it means the world may be a better place in the future.

Who knew light bulbs could be so powerful? There are many little changes that we can all make to affect a huge difference. No one wants to think they are the cause of the problems our earth is facing, but in a way, we contribute by the choices we make, and that extends to the types of light bulbs that we choose to use in our homes. Now that I have some in my home, and plan to replace all of them with these new bulbs within a few months, my thoughts now turn to my grocery bags. It might be inconvenient to carry reusable bags to the store each time, but at least I know I’m not contributing to the problem as much as I used to be.
