This information is brought to you by Cree. Today through Sunday, thousands of new Cree LED Bulbs will be distributed for free in Boston in exchange for Mercury-Laden CFLs and energy inefficient incandescent light bulbs.
If you haven’t switched to LED bulbs, this might just be the perfect opportunity. The Boston stop of the Great American Bulb Swap is this weekend at Reader’s Park in Downtown Crossing. Just bring in any CFL or incandescent bulb and trade it for a New Cree LED Bulb for free. The New Cree LED Bulb is up to 85 percent more energy efficient compared to energy-hogging incandescent bulbs – and it pays for itself in a year or less!
Cree LED Bulbs last up to 22 years. Did you catch that? 22 YEARS. So not only do you save money and energy, but also the hassle of the change. Cree LED Bulbs are also mercury-free and provide superior light quality, unlike those squiggly compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs.
Bring the kids for photos with the Cree LED Bulb mascot & costumed character, “Bulby.”
