LampShopOnline is offering to help companies buying energy saving lighting take advantage of tax relief and a financial scheme that can help reduce initial purchase costs.

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (or WEEE for short) is a law first introduced to the UK in January 2007 which aims to minimise the environmental impact of electrical and electronic equipment. All businesses that manufacture, supply, use, recycle or recover electrical equipment must comply with UK WEEE regulations which direct the proper disposal of such equipment.
Terms like T5, T8 and T12 may seem like meaningless jargon to the layman and it might be hard to figure out which type of tube is best for your needs. The truth is these terms are pretty easy to get your head round and the differences between these types of fluorescent tubes are simple and easy to understand.
Domestic fluorescent lights are generally understood to be the eco-friendly option in the home, but what is it about them that makes them so good for the environment and how much better are they? The light bulbs we’re referring to are generally known as compact fluorescent lights or CFLs and we’re going to give you a brief insight into why these light bulbs are considered the best option in the home.
It’s all too easy to think of the fluorescent tube as an instance of functionality over style. We’re used to seeing long fluorescent tubes in public spaces, offices and buildings and in these contexts it’s probably true that the tube has been picked for efficiency rather than look. This doesn’t mean that the fluorescent tube offers no scope for providing lighting which is not only functional and eco-friendly but which actually offers an aesthetic benefit. Recently, innovative designers and connoisseurs of the minimalist and ultra-contemporary look have been reimagining the fluorescent tube.
