31 Days of Wellness, Day 11: CFL-Bulb it Up
Need a light? Light bulb, that is? Go with a CFL light bulb -- it's one of the easiest and least expensive things you can do to be a little greener in 2010. Plus, having a well-lit home is essential to one's wellness. How many happy and "well" people live in poorly lit homes? Not many.
It gets better as CFLs (Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs) can save you money too: An "Energy Star qualified CFL will save you about $30 over its lifetime and pay for itself in about 6 months. It uses 75 percent less energy and lasts about 10 times longer than an incandescent bulb."
Every day throughout the month of January our 31 Days of Wellness series will provide an actionable tip aimed to get your 2010 off to a better, healthier, greener start.
