Lightbulbs that make homeschoolers happy
Families around the nation are settling into a (strange) new school year — including our team at GoodBulb.

The change in schedule has everyone — still — at home. What you may not realize is the impact the lighting in your home has on the learning environment. Dim, yellow lighting might feel cozier but could lead to distracted kids and vision strain.
