Green Tip of the Season

As we gear up for fall & winter, people begin to prepare for the impending snow and ice by buying rock salts to melt ice away from driveways and sidewalks.  In the United States alone, over 20 million tons of salts are tossed on the road each winter, more than 13 times the amount used by the ENTIRE food processing industry and while effective, salt can be very damaging and expensive to remove.  Not only can the salt cause rust on cars, it can also create runoff which can kill plants, seep into streams & drinking water, and also cause damage to lawns & roads over time.  Try to use more environmentally friendly alternatives such as calcium chloride, sand, or cat litter to melt away snow and ice.  They are just as effective as road salt and do not have a negative impact on the environment as salt can.
