IKEA Singapore to cut use of incandescent lights by 2012

IKEA Singapore has announced plans to phase out all incandescent light bulbs from their stores by 2012.

Known as one of the early adopters of Greenlots and a “no plastic bag” campaign, this is a welcome move by Ikea, and one that all companies should look towards. 

 The attached press release by IKEA Singapore provides full information on switching your incandescent light bulbs to energy-saving ones. It includes tips on choosing the right energy-saving bulb, figures of energy-savings and cost-savings following a switch from incandescent bulbs.
