I would only use these outside. My LED bulb that I have in my bedroom overhead light is wonderful. I managed to buy it during a sale at Lowe's for less than $10.

They cost a more than CFLs though. I am trying to avoid plastic as much as possible, but what kind of a work environment do those employees have working with mercury? I am not sure which is worse.
