A Brite Idea with Sylvania
Our family continues our green efforts in small ways - recycling when possible (since our city doesn't host a mandatory program), donating and trading items, eco-friendly cleaning products, and energy efficient appliances all contribute to our smaller footprint...we have also replaced all our old, incandescent light bulbs with Sylvania Halogen Supersaver light bulbs. We have tried other brands in previous exchanges, but I didn't find the light quality to be as bright or pleasant. Perfect for general lighting as well as reading light with smaller wattage. They last longer, give off excellent light, and use less energy - what a blessing! DEFINITELY A BRIGHT IDEA!!!: My daughter's Girl Scout Troop is holding their meeting this week to discuss "Green World Initiatives" so she is bringing some Sylvania halogen Supersaver light bulbs for each girl to try at home and learn more about this important lighting innovation for quality and energy efficiency.
The SYLVANIA halogen SUPERSAVER light bulb emits the same bright white light as regular incandescent bulbs, but uses up to 33% less energy (and no mercury). With a familiar shape and dimmable features, these bulbs can also fit easily into pre-existing accent lights, track lights, or other fixtures, making them a great transition lightbulb for busy Moms. Of note, traditional incandescents are being phased out under the Federal Government's Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007.

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of SYLVANIA and received products necessary to facilitate my candid review. In addition, I received a gift certificate to thank me for taking the time to participate.
