The greenest bulb of all?
Incandescents and CFLs and LEDs, oh my! The debate about lightbulbs continues (especially since 19% of all worldwide energy consumption is used for lighting), though we may have a winner. While most of us know that CFLs are longer-lasting than incandescents, LED bulbs blow the others out of the water. The Pharox 60 LED Dimmable Bulb in particular takes LED lighting to the next level, using only 6 watts, but with an output of 60 watts. It fits most standard fixtures, is dimmable, and uses no lead or mercury in its production. While the bulb costs $39.95, it has an estimated lifespan of 25 years, which is 6 times longer than a CFL and 35 times longer than an incandescent! You can buy the Pharox online here.
