Practically Green Likes Green Lighting!

Here is an excerpt from another great review of the Green Lighting book I did for the Green Guru Guides.

The subject of green lighting seems to be riddled with endless choices and caveats. Take lightbulbs: We all know that traditional “Edison” bulbs are horribly inefficient. Ever touched one that’s been on for a while? All that heat is doing nothing but permeating your indoor air.
