Currently at home we use GE CFL Daylight Light Bulb: 15 Watt (65W Equivalent).
According to the Union of Concerned Scientists, if every U.S. household replaced just one regular incandescent light bulb with a compact fluorescent light bulb, it would prevent 90 billion pounds of greenhouse gas emissions from power plants, the equivalent of taking 7.5 million cars off the road. And the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says that by replacing regular light bulbs with compact fluorescent light bulbs at the same minimal rate, Americans would save enough energy to light more than 2.5 million homes for a year.
What about you what light bulbs are you using or plan to use?

In the future, we should move to LEDs to avoid the mercury problems associated with CFL bulbs and get even greater efficiency.

At the moment all the lightbulbs in my house are energy saving but as all the electricity I use comes from sustainable sources I'm wondering if it wouldn't be wiser and more environmentally friendly to use the old style bulbs that are much more easily recycled...

I'm in a small place, so I don't need as much lighting as a big house would need. Right now I'm back to the old bulbs. Sorry, but I've had it with CFLs.
Now you wanna talk LEDs, I'm all ears. I prefer using energy-saving bulbs, so I'm eagerly awaiting LEDs that are suitable for lighting up a room (that also fit in my budget).
I also use daylight when I can, too.
