Protecting our Natural Resources
Every day we read about man-made disasters affecting our water supplies and dangers to the air we breathe. Just recently, in Flint, Michigan, it was discovered that there were dangerously high levels of lead in the cities water supply. Lead is a highly potent neurotoxin and can lead to lead poisoning, hair loss, and lowering of IQ’s in children. And once you have lead in your body the effects are irreversible. This is just a recent tragedy and there have been countless other examples of contamination of water supplies. Back in the 60’s, the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland actually caught on fire. Both sides of the river were home to dozens of steel mills dumping their waste into the river.
Fortunately, people are beginning to take steps to protect our precious water supplies. For instance, the EPA has mandated that landfills start using liners and underground water monitoring devices to keep tabs on the condition of the water. Chemical and other waste dumping industrial companies have to use scrubbers to help clean up the sludge that they dump into our water supply.
Another culprit that is harming our environment is air pollution. Some very useful and simple steps the consumer can do to help ease air pollution can go a long way to improving our quality of air.
- Ride share
- Use environmentally friendly paints
- Don’t use wood in fireplace, rather choose gas burning logs
- Use Green detergent products etc…
- Try Composting
- Look for the Energy Star Label when buying products for the home
- Conserve energy at the home or office, turn off the lights when not needed
If we all do our part and it is not difficult to implement the list mentioned above, it will go a long way into protecting the air we breathe and help the environment to return to a more pristine time. It’s never too late, so please do your part and together we all will be able to breathe a sigh of relief.
What is the Makeup of Hazardous Waste
Hazardous waste is any waste or materials that pose a threat to the environment or public health. Hazardous waste usually exhibits four properties:
- Corrosive properties
The EPA has prepared a pamphlet that mentions a few common household hazardous wastes. The following is a small sample and further research should be done to get a complete list, and understanding on how these products react.
- Wood preservatives
- Air conditioning refrigerants
- Polish cleaners
- Ant baits
- Gas/oil mix
No one wants hazardous waste in their homes. So, do a little research. There are many common household products that can be substituted for a more friendly environmental commodity.
The magazine, Parents, offers seven substitutions or ideas you can easily use to make your home a safer place. Here are a few of their suggestions:
- A floor cleaner without any harsh chemicals
- Antibacterial toilet cleaner
- An all-purpose cleaner
Check out the Parent’s Magazine web site for more eco- friendly products. There are literally hundreds of products you can find that are better suited for your home, which will, in turn, provide a healthier place for your family to reside. Every grocery store in America, if you take the time to read the labels, will have a green product next to one that is not so friendly to the environment. It’s up to you to make the right decision that will help to reap benefits immediately.
