There are two aspects to the environmentally safe use of fluorescent bulbs. The first is to use fluorescent bulbs that produce the most light over their lifetimes relative to the amount of mercury contained in the bulbs. In recent years bulb manufacturers have significantly reduced the amount of mercury in their bulbs. The second is to recycle fluorescent bulbs. Almost all parts of fluorescent bulbs can be recycled, including the mercury. More effort needs to be made in this area, because currently only about 24 percent of fluorescent bulbs are recycled.
