In my attempts to "go green" there is one thing I'm not so sure about: CFLs. You may have heard the good stuff like that it saves energy, lasts longer, etc. But recently I've heard talks about the mercury, possibly causing migraines, and various other worries.
It was time to change my kitchen lights and my dad was gungho on switching to CFLs right now. During our arguement I realized - he doesn't know where to recycle these or the proper clean up procedures. This scared me so I put my foot down - NO.
I'm searching now and will make sure my dad follows them. For this family, safety is a must .. no ifs, ands or butts.
