Today’s “Green” Tip from the Green Sanctuary

As we welcome the snow and ice, consider environmentally friendly snow removal products.  Shoveling or sweeping early and often is the best prevention of ice build-up.  If you are not able to shovel, consider hiring a neighborhood teen or friend.  If you must melt the ice, try using Calcium Magnesium Acetate (CMA) or another environmentally friendly product instead of rock salt.  Salt alternatives contain less harmful chemicals for vegetation, fish, aquatic life and soil.
