Cree Lightbulbs (Photo via CreeBulb.com)(Updated at 6:15 p.m.) A lightbulb company will trade you an LED bulb they say can last as long as 22 years for a regular bulb.

The LED lighting company Cree is handing out bulbs at Eastern Market from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. today (Friday) and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, their website says.

The mercury-free bulbs that usually cost at least $8 each last longer, are more energy-efficient and provide nicer light than incandescent and compact fluorescent bulbs, the company says.

Cree is giving away a total of 15,000 bulbs on a promotional tour that’s already made stops in New York and Boston.

    Surely you mean “A lightbulb company will trade you an LED bulb for a regular bulb,” right? If we give them LED bulbs and get back conventional bulbs, that’s not such a great deal.
