  • About the Plumen CFL Energy Saving Light Bulb: 

    We all know the benefits of energy saving light bulbs; the Plumen uses 80% less energy than the traditional incandescent light bulb which keeps down electricity bills and is better for the environment. The Plumen also lasts around 8 times longer then a normal incandescent light bulb and has an unbelievable lifespan of up to 8000 hours!

    Despite this, we tend to buy energy saving light bulbs out of moral obligation and to watch the pennies... not because they look cool. Glass tubes can be bent in many different shapes so why are there thousands of manufacturers out there but only three designs?! The Plumen light bulb answers this call. The name Plumen comes from the “plume,” the decorative feathers of a bird designed to attract attention and stand out from the crowd for their beauty and uniqueness. The Plumen light globe does exactly that.

    The light globes are available in bayonet (B22) and screw in (E27) base fittings so will fit any medium base size Australian socket (standard domestic size). Please make your selection from the drop-down menu above prior to adding the product to your shopping cart.
