a light bulb and air purifier---all in one! Healthy CFLs have a
built-in ionizer that cleans the air. Each energy-efficient bulb
generates 1 million negative ions that attract airborne positive
allergens like smoke, mold spores, dust and pet dander. These irritants
bond with healthy negative ions from the Healthy CFL and become too
heavy to remain airborne, and fall to the floor leaving the air in your
home or office cleaner and healthier to breathe. Plus, studies show
negative ions boost mood, energy and alertness. Available in packs of 1, 2 and 4.
Q & A
What are the wattage equivalents of CFLs?
7-Watt CFL = 25 Watt Standard
9-Watt CFL = 40 Watt Standard
15-Watt CFL = 60 Watt Standard
Do the Healthy CFLs and Pet CFLs contain mercury?
Yes. Mercury is an essential element in the operation of fluorescent lighting
it allows the bulbs to be an efficient light source. CFLs contain a
very small amount of mercury — an average of 3-4 milligrams in each
bulb. However, no mercury is released when the bulbs are intact or in
use. Because CFLs use less electricity than traditional light bulbs,
they reduce demand for electricity and that reduction means less
greenhouse gas emissions (including less mercury) from power plants.
How & where can I recycled CFLs?
prevents the release of mercury into the environment. Recycling CFLs
and other fluorescent bulbs allows the reuse of the glass, metals and
other materials that make up fluorescent lights. Virtually all
components of a fluorescent bulb can be recycled.
