Bright Idea

My stone cold heart has finally thawed and I have renewed feelings for Home Depot now that it’s offering a recycling program for compact fluorescent bulbs. Always a bit of a green conundrum, compact fluorescents are more energy efficient, but its disposal can be toxic because of its mercury content. HD’s recycling program tips the scale in its favor.

Since the city doesn’t offer recycling for light bulbs, it’s a good to see someone take responsibility, even if it’s a big box store. Much like how most cellphone retailers offer recycling for old phones and batteries, this specialized in-store recycling is one solution to the ever complex attempt at green living. It’s only fair that if the store giveth, they should taketh away.
