Okay, so I was recently reading an article about how newer compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL) can change the way we spend energy. We all know energy consumption is a pretty hot issue nowadays. Apparently, Walmart is on a mission to sell 100 million of these swirl shaped bulbs this year. This could really change energy consumption in the U.S.
I couldn’t resist and went ahead and bought one this evening. It really does resemble a soft-serve ice cream swirl. According to the package, this bulb is supposed to last me for the next seven years and will spend 75-80% less energy. Your typical light bulb lasts only 1,000 hours and will last you about 8 months.
