I appreciate many of the benefits of LED lights. They ARE smaller. They ARE less toxic. They DO use less electricity.
But, they are also potential contributors to the plastic proliferation plaguing our world -- and our oceans. Manufacturacturers can nip the potential problem in the bud by designing effective "take-back" programs from the beginning of the industry. Here' why:
This is serious...because much of the world depends on ocean life for food. Because we depend on the plankton and phytoplankton to replenish our oxygen supply -- yes, even far inland!
And we are the ONLY people who can solve the problem. The UK WEEE end of life take-back and recycling program is a giant step forward in recycling lighting products. The US will need a similar program as all these billions of light bulbs are replaced with LEDs, and then are replaced again... and again.
