Swedish housewares giant IKEA will be phasing out sales of incandescent light bulbs starting next month. As current stocks of high-energy incandescent bulbs sell out, shoppers can expect to find longer-lasting and more energy-efficient CFLs and LEDs.

IKEA has 48 stores in North America. Stores in France and Australia have already started phasing out their old bulbs. The company plans to complete their sustainable lighting makeover by January 1 of next year.

Major kudos to IKEA for staying ahead of the game and ditching the incandescents before federally mandated phaseout of 2012!
