I was at Home Depot today and found Philips brand light bulbs in 100% cardboard packaging! They're the twisty CFLs, which I've never seen without the obnoxious molded plastic package before. Each 4-pack was only 99 cents more than the other brand, so I didn't even have to weigh my conscience against my budget.
Home depot and Lowes both carry LED bulbs which do not contain mercury in them. 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.
I remember how the early CFLs had poor light quality and burned out much faster than advertised. I stuck a bunch of them in my closets when I realized too late that they didn't fit my light fixtures. Having been through the light bulb revolution once, I'm waiting to see how other people like their LED bulbs.
