Ban the Bulb

Banthebulb_bagIncandescent lightbulbs are already persona non grata in Australia and Canada, with other countries and U.S. states contemplating their own bans on the energy-inefficient lights. Among them is the United Kingdom, where Dr. Matt Prescott of Ban the Bulb is making the case for incandescents' extinction. In the U.S., the urban advocates at The New Colonist have added a little flair to the cause with a full line of "Ban the Bulb" clothing and accessories--including dog T-shirts, BBQ aprons, messenger bags (above), and thongs.

Newyorker_libertyStill wondering what all the fuss is about? The Washington Post expertly breaks down the benefits of switching to efficient compact fluorescents, which the New Yorker celebrates as a patriotic move on its recent "Bright Idea" cover (at left). Just be sure you recycle them properly.
