Get Free Energy-Efficient Light Bulbs at Eastern Market This Weekend

Lighting company Cree will swap you an old bulb for a new, planet-friendly design.

This weekend, LED lighting company Cree will give away its new, energy-efficient light bulbs at Eastern Market. Washington marks the third and final stop on Cree’s Great American Bulb Swap tour, after Boston and New York, where the company raised awareness about the energy crisis and gave out the new bulbs. Cree’s LED bulb has no mercury and claims to last up to 22 years. Bring either a compact fluorescent or an incandescent bulb to swap, and you’ll get to go home with one of the bulbs (usually $8) for free.

Eastern Market, 225 Seventh St., SE. Friday 11 AM to 2 PM, and Saturday and Sunday 9 AM to 5 PM.
