Summer Healthy Green Cleaning Tips!

Healthy Summer Tips from Brightly Green!
How to Green Your Summer!
During the summer if you have your air conditioning working all the time and if you are using toxic products you may want to be concerned about the "Safety Factor". Many people think the winter is the only time to be concerned with toxic fumes in their homes. Summer too can create problems for people, kids and pets. Heat and humidity also can keep people indoors. The first thing you can do is replace toxic products for non-toxic products like Brightly Green All-Natural Household Cleaners.

Also, there are a few simple things you can do to help draw out the toxins in your home or working area. Open your windows and doors and use an attic fan from time to time. You can place a fan by your doors and windows especially on those days when the temperature is lower and the humidity is down.

Also, open your windows and allow some fresh air cool off your bedroom. Even opening your windows for just a short time the fresh air will help to freshen your home as well as lower energy cost.

This does take planning and effort on your part but in the end the benefits for you and your family will be enormous.
Other summer green cleaning projects are:

Vehicle Wash:
Our Brightly Green Dish Wash makes a great car wash and the runoff does not hurt the environment.

The Brightly Green Glass Cleaner will shine your windows and headlights and you will not be breathing toxic fumes while cleaning your auto.

To clean your grill uses our Brightly Green Multi-Purpose cleaner or if you really have some concentrated dirt and grime our Brightly Green All-Purpose Degreaser Concentrate will do the job.

No toxic fumes or residue when you use your grill.

Environmental Damage Caused by Tornadoes

Guest article from Barbara O’ Brien
Barbara represents the MAA Center, a leading web resource for asbestos exposure and cancer information. In addition,she is blogging at The Mahablog, Crooks and Liars, and AlterNet earned her the notoriety of being a panelist at the Yearly Kos Convention and a featured guest blogger at the Take Back America Conference in Washington, DC.
The recent tornadoes in the South and Midwest left behind acres of tangled, shredded debris — building materials, trees, cars, refrigerators. They also left behind some potentially serious environmental hazards.

Faced with challenging cleanups, states are relaxing some environmental protection regulations in the affected areas. Missouri, for example, is temporarily lifting some restrictions on what can be discarded in landfills. The state also is allowing residents in affected areas to burn vegetative matter on their own property, but only with the permission of the local fire department. Burning is an obvious way to quickly clear a pile of debris, but indiscriminate burning of made-made materials could release a poisonous stew of toxins into the air.

Toxins already released by the tornadoes are a bigger worry. These include asbestos, lead paint chips, gasoline, oil, and battery acid. A contractor cleaning up an Alabama site found the area contaminated by highly dangerous polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB), leaked from damaged electrical transformers.

Asbestos appears to be the biggest concern, especially in neighborhoods with older homes, schools, and commercial buildings. The massive storms ripped asbestos insulation out of walls and smashed asbestos shingles, tiles, and other building materials into dust.

Asbestos is a mineral that breaks into tiny fibers. If breathed into the lungs the fibers can cause a host of severe illnesses, including the deadly lung cancer mesothelioma. However, the effects are not immediate. There are people receiving mesothelioma treatment today because they breathed asbestos as long as 40 or 50 years ago.

State and federal regulations require that asbestos removal can be done only by specially trained and licensed contractors, who wear respirators and “hazmat” suits. But with such widespread damage, it’s expected that many people will plunge into cleanup work without calling in experts to find out what hazards might be present. Some states are telling residents to at least wear high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) masks and heavy gloves when working around all tornado debris.

There were scattered reports of broken sewer and gas lines after the tornadoes had done their work, but more damage could be done by the cleanup. In some communities ruined building materials are being heaped along roadways, right on top of residential sewer lines. Eventually heavy equipment will be brought in to haul the debris away. Older lines in particular might be crushed, causing another kind of biological hazard and possibly compromise drinking water.

Most of the storm damage was in residential and farming areas, and it’s hoped that lingering environmental hazards will be isolated, and few. It may be weeks or months before the full extent of environmental damage is known.

Barbara’s public concern about health care and its ties to the environment, especially in light of all the recent disastrous weather.

Thank you Barbara for your great article.
