The EU has adopted a ban on three very popular fluorescent tubes, which hang in large numbers in Danish office and service companies, agriculture, industry, warehouses, shops, schools and institutions. 

The fluorescent tubes are called T5, T8 and CFLni and contain mercury, which is one of the most dangerous environmental toxins available.

The EU itself estimates that the change to the rules will save the environment and health at least three tonnes of mercury by 2035.
