Creative Lighting Recycles Old Bulbs

Just read this...for those of you who live in or near the Twin Cities, Creative Lighting located off of 94 and Snelling Ave. will take your old or new bulbs to recycle and in return give you a discount on new CFL's!

Creative Lighting wants to help customers go green with light bulbs.

Creative Lighting customers can now recycle old or new incandescent light bulbs at the store and apply the full retail price of the incandescent light bulb towards a purchase of one compact fluorescent light bulb (CFL). Incandescent bulbs, which provide on average only 750-1000 hours of light, can be traded at Creative Lighting for a discount on a new CFL, which omits less heat, uses about 75% less energy and provides anywhere from 8,000 to 10,000 hours of light. In addition, Creative Lighting will recycle your household fluorescent bulbs at no charge!"
