They contain potentially hazardous quantities of mercury.
As do the fluorescent tubes which have been standard lighting in offices for decades.

Re: Light Bulbs - life was once so simple

the same is true at Ikea:
Led version for 9.95
"normal" version for <CHF1

the price difference is CHF9 and 1 kWh is CHF0.2 those days. So it takes 1285 hours of usage to fill the difference.
2 hours a day and it's 2 years so it might be worth it...

Although, in the office, they're probably less likely to get broken as unlike home, they don't end up getting in the path of flying footballs, light sabres, toy cars, brothers and sisters and the neighbour's cat.
