The Earth911 gang is back at the microphone to talk about hydrofluorocarbon 152A, the supergreenhouse gas in many U.S. aerosol products (it’s banned elsewhere in the world), how to identify and deal with contaminated tap water, and the preparations and plantings you can make now to have a healthy garden in 2020. Join Evelyn Fielding-Lopez, Sarah Lozanova, and Mitch Ratcliffe for a conversation that can help you prevent climate change and protect your family from lead and other widespread contaminants in the U.S. water infrastructure — more than 63 million Americans are at risk from contaminated water.
As always, we answer your Earthling Questions, too. This week we address how to recycle plastic gift cards, perfumes and beauty products, as well as what to do with 600 pounds of hybrid car batteries that need to be recycled.
