Well this is pretty big news: IKEA is no longer selling incandescent light bulbs, as the company promised in August 2010. This is a huge step, leaping way ahead of the 2012-2014 deadline set by The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 for the phase-out of the energy-sucking bulbs.
“IKEA is committed to integrating sustainable practices into our range and business practices. As the largest home furnishings store, we are constantly looking at ways to help support our customers with every day environmentally responsible solutions that will improve their lives. Eliminating incandescents is just one simple way for IKEA customers to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gases,” commented Mike Ward, US IKEA President.
