If you are anything like my family, we have lightbulbs of all shapes, sizes, and colors burning out all at once. Right now! Here are some ideas of painting and decorating these lightbulbs for the upcoming holidays. They will give you some holiday cheer AND you will be keeping lightbulbs out of the dump.
FACTS about light bulbs:
Even though you can get ‘low mercury’ light bulbs, they still have 3.5 mg of mercury in them each! When this mercury gets into the dump and it rains, the mercury has a potential to get into our water. When mercury gets into the environment, it poses great threats to both humans and animals. Keep the light bulbs out of the dump!
