Ikea will now only sell energy-saving LED lightbulbs

The European Union was expected to ban certain halogen bulbs from sale as of next year. But earlier this year the ban was delayed until 2018. So what’s a company to do that recognizes that customers are ready for the super-efficient LED technology? Well, Ikea has taken the lead by declaring to stop selling halogen and ‘energy-saving’ compact fluorescent bulbs from next month, when it switches all its lighting sold globally to LEDs. Steve Howard, Ikea’s chief sustainability officer, says, “If you can produce a product that can last 25-30 times longer and save you 85% of the energy and have fantastic light quality, then that’s the right thing for the customer.”
