IKEA stops selling incandescent lights

IKEA Israel discontinued its sale of incandescent light bulbs as of Thursday, September 1, the first retailer to do so in the country, a spokeswoman for the company said in a statement on Sunday.

The store instead is selling a range of compact fluorescent light bulbs, which use 80 percent less energy and have a life span 10 times that of standard incandescent bulbs; halogen lights, which consume 30% less energy; solar lamps; and other types of energy-saving bulbs.
