Why are the new light bulbs mandatory? They are very expensive and are environmentally hazardous. Can I get the old ones back?

I am already replacing the new bulbs I purchased 4 years ago, through out my home. Still have 4 in dressing room 21 yrs old (other 2 need replacing again! My 5w night light is brighter than the 100w equivalent (when 1st turned) on in my bedroom. Also not bright enough to read by. Having to replace all these light at $6 or more per, is too expensive for seniors and they are hazardous for the environment. Why can't we have the safer,more enviromentally friendly bulbs back?
