As Wal-Mart made another announcement regarding its plan to sell compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL’s), WakeUpWalMart.com and the Center for Environmental Health called on the company to “do the right thing” and adopt a national recycling program to help lessen the mercury threat posed by these bulbs. In statements released today, both the Center for Environmental Health (CEH) and WakeUpWalMart.com cautioned that Wal-Mart needs to address the risks of mercury exposure from the disposal of CFLs, preferably by insuring that consumers can return used bulbs for recycling.
