    Thinking Green at Home

    Follow these simple tips to help you save the cash and the environment

    1. Dispose of hazardous waste properly - Cleaners, oils, paints, pesticides, batteries, and solvents can contaminate the soil and groundwater and need to be handled and disposed of separately from your household trash. Electronics, such as cell phones and computers, must be disposed of separately as well. They can contain mercury and other toxins that can be extremely harmful to the environment.

    Think Green Garden

    You can stop dreaming about a green lawn, because with these tips, you can make it happen.  A lot of lawns aren’t very “green” — at least, not for the environment. Residential lawns can use a lot of toxic chemicals — up to 10 pounds of pesticides per acre. The poisons don’t end at your front door. When it rains, pesticides may be flushed into local streams, rivers, and lakes, harming fish and plants along the way. Here are some tips to make sure your grass looks great — and is safe for pets, children, and other living things.

    Oceans Awareness

     

    Our oceans are in trouble. 
    Careless activities by people, at sea and on land, have created the dire state of the oceans today:

     

    •    Routine activities on land and water contribute to 6.4 million tons of debris entering the ocean every year

     

    •    In the US, littering accounts for the majority marine debris that originates from land

     

    •    Plastic debris is especially dangerous, because it does not degrade and poses swallowing and entanglement threats to marine life
