Product Review – Earthmate™ 13 Watt T2 Spiral Compact Fluorescent Lamp (CFL)

The reduced size allows makes it incredibly versatile. See? This compact little bulb is less than 4” tall – smaller than a Sharpie highlighter. Plus, it’s only $3.95! That’s quite a steal for a bulb that we estimate will save you around $58 during its lifetime. Can’t beat that for value and savings!

Local Recycling Center

1. Recycle your light bulbs! Incandescent bulbs, CFLs and LEDs alike can be recycled. Check with your local recycling service to see if you can drop them in your curbside bin. If not, try these options:

Incandescents: Next time you make a trip to IKEA, load up your inefficient bulbs. Most stores offer incandescent light bulb recycling.

CFLs: Pick up a Veolia RecyclePak or two and ship them off to a special recycling center designed to handle them safely. Easy!

LEDs: With an average rated life of 25,000 hours, you’ll be hard-pressed to even have LEDs to recycle. But if you do, check with your local hardware store to see if they’ll accept them.

2. Start a recycling club at your school! It could actually be tons of fun, help you meet new people and help the environment.

3. Make your own reusable shopping bags and keep them in your car or a couple in your purse so you’ll have them whenever you go shopping. You can even drop off old plastic shopping bags for recycling while you’re at the grocery store.

4. Grab a couple of bins and place them somewhere convenient, such as your kitchen or home office. Get a traditional blue bin, an old trash can, a paper bag or cardboard box – whatever best fits your style – and use them!

5. Keep old, dead batteries out of landfills with a Veolia Battery Recycling Pail. It holds up to 15lbs. and can handle any dry cell battery you can throw at it. Then, invest in some rechargeable batteries.

6. Donate old clothes, housewares, appliances and whatever you have around the house that you aren’t using anymore. You’ll give your old stuff new life and help someone in need.

7. Use food scraps instead of fertilizer on your lawn and garden with a compost bin. You’ll reduce waste and save money at the same time!
