The Good News:
A prize-winning, super energy saving LED bulb from Dutch electronics giant Royal Philips Electronics NV (IW 1000/118), said to last over 20 years, went on sale online and in stores Sunday to coincide with Earth Day.
The Bad News:
You will have to forgo eating for a week.
The bulb that won the 2011 U.S. Department of Energy's "Bright Tomorrow
Lighting Prize," was available from retailers for $50, and the company
said it was planning discounts to bring the cost down to as little as
$25 to $30.
