Do You Know What Hg Is?

It's mercury baby!

Note that all those so-called "eco friendly" fluo-lightbulbs do contain a quantity. Now, multiply this by millions of lightbulbs and no matter how infinitesimal the quantity, you're still in a world of hurt. Tungsten just doesn't seem quite so bad now does it?

Now that you know what Hg is, you can proceed to RECYCLING of your green-bulbs, since it's actually illegal to dump them in the trash.

Oh, yeah, almost forgot: they don't take them back in the blue-box. So it's back to the store with you. Oh wait, the stores don't take them back either. But I'm sure they will soon. Shouldn't be long now...

Green hunh?

Enough said.
