COMMENT: So the light bulb bans are introduced to go post-industrial and force expensive green ‘solutions’ that compete unfairly, but the LEDs at least have no mercury light the fluorescent alternatives.
A prize-winning light bulb that lasts for 20 years is going on sale in the US on Sunday – also known as Earth Day.
