We love any blogger’s post that includes the shout-out, “Purely Products is my kind of company.” But then able2able.com put Healthy CFL, the little air purifier wrapped in a compact fluorescent lightbulb, to the ultimate smell test – baby poo and doggie drool.
You can read her entire review including her passion for Pocket Purifier here, but check out her family’s bottom line on the bulb.
“I also reviewed the Healthy light bulb. This innocent looking compact fluorescent lightbulb actually has an air purifier in its middle. The Healthy CFL cleans the air of cigarette smoke, pollen, mold, germs, dust, odors, pet dander and other airborne contaminants. As it cleans, the built-in ionizer also counters the draining effects of positive ions emitted every day by items like computers, cell phones, televisions, and forced air ventilation, while flowing a steady stream of refreshing negative ions into the air to boost mood and energy. Yeah, I was happy to have two of these in my home!
So does the Healthy CFL work?
My Red Dog loves to sneak on the couch when we are out on Clara-Bear’s longer appointment days. I discovered he was drooling on my couch when I started coming home to a closed up house with a funky smell. Now I leave the living room light with the Healthy CFL bulbs in it and I no longer notice a dog smell or closed up stuffy smell, even with the a/c turned up to 79 degrees. Since the Healthy CFL uses 80% less energy than a traditional light bulb we have not noticed an increase in our electricity bill with the light on all day.
I also had to move my essential oil diffuser out of the living room since I could not smell my beautiful oils. And I put the Healthy CFL to the ultimate, grossest test yesterday. I changed a super-pooper diaper underneath it, turned the a/c temp up, and left the house for an hour. I was relieved not to smell poop when we returned!”
“Since we have a houseful of asthma, allergies, and exzema, I really like knowing that allergens and triggers are being cleaned by the Healthy CFL’s along with the funk.”

How many bulbs does it take to change an energy-guzzling habit?
Or as Charles Fishman proposes, change the world? Just one. If every American home replaced just ONE incandescent light bulb with an ENERGY STAR qualified bulb, like compact fluorescent lightbulbs, (Healthy CFL from Purely Products for example), in one year it would:
Should I wait until all my incandescent bulbs burn out before replacing with CFLs ?
The reality is, Ellen Florian reports, “You’d be wasting a lot of money and energy. Scientists Jeff Tsao and Mike Coltrin of Sandia National Laboratories calculate you’d save money by tossing a new 60-watt incandescent and replacing it with a fluorescent. Why? The money you’d save on your electric bill with the CFL would more than make up for the cost of both bulbs. Over the CFL’s 12,000-hour lifetime, you would save some $51.”
So, how is Healthy CFL different from other CFLs?
Healthy CFL is the hardest-working bulb in the house. It’s a compact fluorescent lightbulb wrapped around an air purifier. While it saves you money and energy and helps cut greenhouse gas emissions, it’s helping remove dust, cigarette smoke, pollen, mold spores, pet odor and dander and other allergens. Any of those clogging the air in your house?
Watch Healthy CFL remove cigarette smoke in 30 seconds.
Any other reason why I should pop in a CFL (like this really swell Healthy CFL)?
You bet. The “Energy Bill” of 2007 requires all lightbulbs use 30% less energy than today’s incandescent bulbs by 2012, phasing out 100-watt bulbs in January 2012 and ending with 40 watt bulbs in 2014. Healthy CFL (along with Premium CFL and Pet CFL) use about 75 percent less energy than incandescent bulbs and already meet the new efficiency standards.
Good for the pocketbook. Good conservation. Good citizenship.
Last question. It’s Earth month. Good time to switch?
