No more incandescent light bulbs!

Step 4 in the Greenpeace 7 steps:

Challenge lightbulb makers

Petition text:

“Dear Philips, Osram, GE and SLI Sylvania,
You cannot deny the scale of the climate emergency, and the need for urgent action including energy conservation. Some of the lightbulbs you make are energy savers, and some of them squander energy unnecessarily. Stop manufacturing inefficient lightbulbs by January 2010 at the latest.

P.S. Philips: As a sponsor of Al Gore’s Live Earth concerts, you should be taking the lead on this!”

Here is the place to do it u 2!


Here is my comment:
"Even better, put more emphasis on developing and selling LED based lights. At the moment they are even more expensive then the CFLs. So with the supposed “efficiency of scale” I guess you could slash those prices a lot. This would lead to even more energy savings and no heavy metal waste compared to CFLs LFs.

Perhaps you should view yourselves as providers of lighting solutions rather than light bulb vendors?!"

Is there any power saving light bulbs for freezers and kitchen exaust apliances? Ive never saw them anywhere...

i dunno what kind of bulbs you have in your kitchen exhaust. I have a normal flourescent tube there. which is a power saver, compared to having incandescent bulbs.

In my fridge I have no idea. It is A-rated anyway. The light in the fridge is not turned on many minutes any day so I dunno how much of a worry this is.

I had a look in my fridge today. It was a 10W incandescent bulb with an E11 screw. So if you are really hard core you might swap that for a LED spot. Available at AKI for 13.95€. Sucks around 0.7 to 0.8W.

You might think of using energy saving lights instead or perhaps LED lightings from Omni Lightings.
