daniel hen period 7While the Agency collections will accept used motor oil, participants should take this material to local recyclers, to reduce the volume of wastes at collection sites. Used motor oil can be re-refined. Though lead-acid batteries are not commonly accepted during collections, local retailers are willing to accept them; lead and acid from batteries can be recovered for future use. Liquid motor oil and lead-acid batteries are banned from Illinois landfills. Also, latex or "water based"- paints are not household items that should be delivered to household hazardous waste collection events.
K.A PD 7: Truly “green” products are safer for humans and the environment than conventional products. They are less irritating. They are biodegradable, meaning less waste. They usually mean there was less energy and resources used to create the productEXAMPLES:•Chlorinated phenols found in toilet bowl cleaners are toxic to respiratory and circulatory systems.•Diethylene glycol found in window cleaners depresses the nervous system.•Perchloroethylene, a spot remover, causes liver and kidney damage.
Joseph Amendola Period 7 Mrs. Zazzali Remove toxic products from under your kitchen sink.Some cleaning products we use are carcinogens. Carcinogens cause cancer. Ammonia, in some cleaning products, can trigger asthmatic attacks, and harsh oven cleaners and drain openers can cause terrible damage to children who come into contact with them. Take any cleaner whose ingredient list reads like a chemistry textbook to a hazardous waste disposal center in your municipality and replace the cleaners with ecofriendly ones that have simple, natural ingredients.Thank You :)
Chlorinated phenols found in toilet bowl cleaners are toxic to respiratory and circulatory systems.Diethylene glycol found in window cleaners depresses the nervous system.Phenols found in disinfectants are toxic to respiratory and circulatory systems. White vinegaris an antifungal that also kills germs and bacteria these are great to clean the floor and windows.
Megan Amendola period 3: Castile Soap can be used as an all purpose cleaner for around the home and would be much greeener and safer. Also, baking soda is an effective replacemnt. Distilled White Vinegar is great for dissolving grease, dirt, soap, scum, and mineral deposits. All of theese are great for the Earth. -Chlorinated phenols found in toilet bowl cleaners,toxic to respiratory and circulatory systems.-Diethylene glycol found in window cleaners,depresses the nervous system.-Phenols found in disinfectants are toxic to respiratory and circulatory systems.-Nonylphenol ethoxylate,found in laundry detergents and all-purpose cleaners, is banned in Europe; it has been shown to biodegradeslowly into even more toxic compounds.
AMR Pd 8One safe way to refresh the air is to use plants instead of sprays. The chemicals in air sprays can be toxic even though they smell nice. Plants have been found to reduce the pollution in the air. One of he most hazardous chemicals is a corrosive drain cleaner. The corrosive drain cleaner can burn your eyes and skin and if ingested your esophagus and lungs.
N.C. Per.8Some safer cleaning products are organic or natural ones. For example: instead of using Swifter cleaning pads use white vinegar and water to clean hardwood floors. Instead of using LYSOL Disinfectant Spray or wipes which contain harsh ingredients try Seventh Generation natural cleaning wipes which have Thymol-thyme oil as a active ingredient. A very hazard material/cleaning supply is Perchloroethylene(a spot cleaner)which causes liver and kidney damage.
M.A pd 8- Household cleaners, garden pesticides, paints, batteries, detergents, even flea powders can be hazardous to our health and the environment. Detergents, degreasers, stain removers and pesticides have made our homes small chemical factories. If these hazardous products in the home are ingested, absorbed through the skin or inhaled they can cause illness that may only appear years later. Many household cleaners can be diluted with water and clean well. Diluting a cleaner is an easy way of making it less harsh and better for safe cleaning. Green cleaning is behavioral as well as simply using healthy and environmentally-friendly products.

C.A. Pd. 5One of the biggest culprits in ocean pollution is phosphates, common in laundry detergents and some cleaning products. The average consumer nationwide uses about 30 pounds of laundry detergent a year; all together, Americans use about 8.3 billion pounds of dry detergent and a billion gallons of liquid detergent each year! High phosphate levels can kill life in rivers, streams and oceans by causing "algae blooms." Algae slimes dense enough to suffocate marine life have been swelling around the world, especially in coastal bays. They are largely caused by fertilizing pollutants called "nutrients" in human sewage and farm runoff.Many of the chemicals found in our homes are used to make our lives easier. But we don't realize the consequences of using many of these substances. Think before you pour waste down the sink. Only natural substances should be disposed in our sewer systems. Be wary and read labels. And whenever possible, use alternative non-toxic products that will curtail the destruction of the environment.

V.D. P.D.8: Hazrdous cleaners can be very dangerous and toxic to our health. You should remove any toxic or polluting cleaning chemicals which have labels that read dangerous, poison, caution, or danger on it as this is a clear sign to trouble. Toxic cleaners can damage your health. Remove all dangerous and polluting cleaners from under the kitchen sink, where almost everyone keeps cleaners, as the harsh chemicals can get on the food in the kitchen leading to several problems. Put the hazardous cleaners in an isolated locked area until the household hazardous pickup day comes around. You don not want the poisonous chemicals getting to you. Some of the hazardous chemicals can cause serious physical problems or even death like bleach. Most are cancer causing chemicals and irritate the eyes, skin, nose, and throat. Many are toxic and can cause organ problems. Toxic cleaners are bad news to your health and environment.
SS Period 8One way to reduce the amount of toxins in your home while cleaning it is to stop using air fresheners.
S.H.Pd.7To pick a safer cleaner, you need to: Find out what's in your cleaning supplies. If you want to know what ingredients are in your cleaning products, you probably won't find them on the label (with a few exceptions).Instead, you'll need to call the company or try looking on the product manufacturer's website, because manufacturers are not currently required to label their products with a full list of ingredients. Some companies will provide more information if you call or, increasingly, you can check the product's website.•2-butoxyethanol (or ethylene glycol monobutyl ether) and other glycol ethers •Dye (companies often hide chemical information behind this word; when it's unknown, it's safer to skip it) •Ethanolamines (common ones to look out for are: mono-, di-, and tri-ethanolamine) •Fragrance •Pine or citrus oil

Or you can purchase ecofriendly products such as, Melaleuca which has natural oils or cleaners that cleans and disinfects germs.
MM, period 8: Many all-purpose cleaning agents contain diethanolamine (DEA) and/or triethanolamine (TEA). When these chemicals come in contact with nitrites they present as contaminations. They combine to form nitrosamines (theses can dangerously penetrate the skin). In addition, chemicals referred to a "hormone disruptors can mimic the characteristics of hormones. This can cause male birth defects. Greener cleaning alternatives include: caking soda, vinegar and water, lemon, tea tree oil. Green products include: Natural Oxy (stain remover), Simple Green (all-purpose cleaner), and Clorox Green Works: toilet bowl cleaner.

Per. 2 Well healthier ways to clean our dishes and etc. are to use natural resources instead of these malignment chemicals we use like clorine,napthalene,and bleach. These chemicals affect your skin,eyes,and organs,but the good news is we have a better methods of solving these horrors of chemicals. Like using soap,water,baking soda,or lime or lemons.these are some of noumerouse ways of doing good instead of harm!
A.H.-Pd. 8: As that they are part of many of our daily lives, household products are used without much attention to its contents and environmental footprint. Countless household products contain dangerous chemicals such as alcohol (which is always in a highly concentrated form, therefore very dangerous and volatile) , ammonia (common in cleaning detergents) , bleach (which, like alcohol, is also highly concentrated and capable of doing much more than just ruin color) , formaldehyde (which just so happens to used as a preserving agent inside the corpses at funeral homes) , as well as countless other substances. One drain cleaner called Drano (in highly concentrated form) is said to eat away at organic matter at contact. I will should think that now this answers this "equation": Skin Contact with Drano = ?????? . Tough question, is it not? I would also like to relate that other products have incredible side effects: Inhaltion from powerful cleaners (such as those used to clean especially dirty stoves, sinks, ovens, etc.) can cause asthma, lung cancer, serious lung damage, and other lovely conditions. Swallowing those same cleaners would (if not treated immediatley) most DEFENITELY RESULT IN DEATH. It's such a positive note. If you often spray your home with toxic, poisonous, and sometimes flammable gases that are supposedly doing good for you and your home a.k.a. "Air Refresheners", you are actually doing quite the opposite of your goal. Most individuals do not understand this, but most "air refresher" formulas involve hazardous chemicals disguised in a smooth, fresh, AND DECIEVING SCENT that has detrimental health effects over time. If they use chlorine or bromine, they also help melp melt Antarctica by generously breaking down the essential ozone layer obove it. A nice alternative is opening all windows in a house to let the scent fade and/or placing plenty of herbal plants to add a more natural scent to the air. Fortunately, there are many eco-friendly products (developed through the long-overdue environmental revolution) that use chemicals gentle to the environment. With miraculous luck, hardly anyone uses them! They seem to take the environment for granted, dismiss all environmental reccomendations, and do not want the supposedly "ominous change". -Here are some very nice effects of these products: -Vomiting -Dysentary -Nausea -Lung Cancer -Skin Cancer -Possible Cancer in ANY area of contact -Asthma -Runny Nose -Burning of eyes, skin, nose, respiratory system, and throat -Inflammation of skin, nose, respiratory system, and throat -Puncture of skin -Extreme Acidic Erosion -Heavy Fatigue -Heavy Dizziness -Possible Fainting -Terrible Level of Coughing and Sneezing -And many other lovely conditions, disorders, and injuries. --> VERY POSSIBLE CHANCE OF DEATH IF NOT TREATED <-- Here is a tip I really hope you know by now: --> ONLY USE TOXIC PRODUCTS WHEN ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY! <-- . So let's go out there and try not to destroy the environment.
A.C. Pd 8- Here are some harmful everyday chemicals:-Chlorinated phenols-Diethylene glycol-Phenols--Nonylphenol ethoxylate-Formaldehyde found in spray and wick deodorizers is a respiratory irritant and suspected carcinogen.-Petroleum-Perchloroethylene-Butyl cellosolveHere are some that you could use as an alternate cleaning source:-Microfibre cloths-White vinegar-Bicarbonate of Soda (Baking soda or soda crystals)-Eco Wash Balls or Soap Nuts-Assorted Rags – Anything of cloth origin (old towels, sheets, t-shirts) past its best cut up and stored for those really dirty jobs-Pumice stone
I.F Pd 8One way to stay clean is to avoid poor indoor air quality. It is not uncommon for the air inside a home or office to be more toxic than the air outside. This is because of the presence of toxic materials and substances and the fact that homes and buildings are better insulated than ever before. Keeping windows open as often as possible allows fresh air in and keeps toxins flowing out. This is especially important when cleaning your home
