CFL's save energy, reduce carbon dioxide emissions, and save money on electricity bills. They also produce less heat, so your reading lamp will not be as hot to the touch.
[[Greensense]] and Throughout the year, [[Thursday Night Group]] have teamed up works to exchange all student incandescent lightbulbs on campus to CFL's.
So far, approximately 950 lightbulbs have been exchanged from [[Mission]], the [[Frosh Quad]], and [[Dodd House]].
However, these bulbs do contain mercury, so broken bulbs should be handled with care, and steps should be taken to ensure safety. Also, if broken or burnt out, they should be recycled and not placed in the general trash.
