Only energy-saving light bulbs to be sold by 2011

Thursday, September 27, 2007

On the news today Hilary Benn, the Environment Secretary has announced plans to phase out the traditional light bulb. The idea is that by 2011 all high-energy light bulbs to be taken off the shelves.

Mr Benn estimated that the move would save five million tonnes of CO2 a year and take the UK closer to its target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 60% by 2050.

I really like this idea, it is certainly a simple, but effective step to make the world a slightly better place.
