Let There Be Lighting
Swap your old light bulbs for compact fluorescents. They last 10 times longer, putting fewer of them in landfills; use two-thirds less energy, meaning less carbon emitted into the atmosphere; and they emit less heat than standard bulbs, so they're safer and cooler. Yes, they cost a little more up front, but in the long run, they save you money and guilt--and many of them look funky!
