Wegmans has a good deal on CFL's this week

I know this has nothing to do with food, but I would imagine that many of us locavores and locavore wannabes are also concerned about the environment. So I thought I'd pass this along.

In the Wegmans circular for 2/1 - 2/7, they are advertising Energy Star Earthmate CFL bulbs, 15w or 20w, for $1.99 each. They are regularly $3.99. The Earthmate CFL's are
energy saving, eco-sensitive CFL light bulbs are designed to reduce electricity consumption, prevent greenhouse gases, and fight global warming - all while providing long-lasting, economical, and reliable lighting for your home or business.

Earthmate light bulbs use 75% less electricity than comparable incandescent bulbs, which helps conserve natural resources used in energy generation - such as coal, oil, and natural gas - while reducing green house gas emissions. Replacing incandescent light bulbs with energy efficient Earthmate bulbs will not only reduce your energy cost, but you'll be helping to fight global warming and preserving our planet for generations to come.
If you haven't bought CFL's yet because of their price, here's a chance to pick them up at a really good discount.

If you're concerned about how to handle a CFL if it breaks because of the mercury contained in it, the EPA website has detailed instructions.

If you're concerned about disposing of your CFL's once they burn out, you can go to Earth911 to find a disposal center near you.
