We now live in an age when everyone is becoming energy conscious, investing in alternative energy solutions such as solar, wind, geothermal. People are seeking a quick reduction in energy consumption by changing from conventional light bulbs to CFL (Compact Fluorescent Light) bulbs. But very few of the people I have spoken with know what to do in the event a CFL bulb breaks. DO NOT clean it up as you would a conventional bulb or standard broken glass. CFL contain Mercury!
Go to LIPA's website http://www.lipower.org/efficiency/lighting_cflqa2.htm to learn how to safely clean up a broken CFL bulb and share this information with everyone you know.
