"Nearly 20 million tons, or one million truckloads worth, of salt is deposited on America's roadways each winter. This road salt raises salinity and reduces oxygen levels in local water, and it may also contain toxic metals like mercury or arsenic. Road salt can also dehydrate nearby vegetation and endanger animals that accidentally ingest it or step on its jagged granules. For your own steps and sidewalks, choose a non-hazardous ice-melt instead." -E Magazine

*Use the complementary cards to promote the Fair Trade alternative while passing out candy to Trick-or-Treaters, or at events. Halloween is one of the biggest holidays for chocolate in the US. Did you know most mainstream chocolate comes from West Africa, where forced child labor has been documented? This year, choose a Fair Trade alternative! Equal Exchange chocolate is sourced from small farmer co-ops and they're perfect for your Halloween festivities.
Equal Exchange minis are made with cacao (cocoa beans) from farmer co-operatives in the Dominican Republic and Peru. The sugar and vanilla are also fairly traded and organic. The sugar comes from co-operatives in Paraguay and the vanilla from a co-operative in Madagascar.

Today you will discover our best kept secret! We carry CleanWell natural foaming hand sanitizer, which is alcohol free and triclosan free. http://www.greenlinepaper.com/clean-well-foaming-hand-sanitizer.html There are several chemicals used today in "antibacterial" personal care and hygiene products which are toxic to the human body. Perhaps the most toxic is one named triclosan. Triclosan is a controversial chemical linked to hormonal disruption and various types of cancer.
Its chemical structure is similar to Agent Orange. Agent Orange is a highly toxic herbicide that was notoriously used to kill foliage during the Vietnam War. It was later linked to high rates of birth defects, neurological conditions and cancer in those that came into contact with the chemical.
There are other chemicals as well which have questionable chemical profiles for human safety. Ethyl alcohol is a common ingredient in hand sanitizer. It is linked to reproductive toxicity, cancer and birth defects. Another antibacterial agent called Benzalkonium Chloride (BAC) is used in sanitizing products. It is linked to cancer, allergies and organ toxicity. You can find CleanWell hand sanitizer here.

Styrene (foam) now officially linked to cancer
There’s a new development around the health effects of styrene, according to this article the National Research Council (NRC) signed off on the National Toxicology Program’s decision to list styrene as “reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen” in its latest report on carcinogens.
The styrene industry has fought the designation as a “reasonably anticipated human carcinogen” and good government science for years. Fortunately, we offer plastic-free alternatives to foam plates, cups, bowls and containers which are made from plants such as sugarcane, potatoes and/or corn. These items are compostable where possible, but may also be placed in the trash with the confidence of knowing that they are safer for the environment. With the ever-increasing amount of plastic litter going into our environment and oceans, it’s important to reduce our own use of these items. We applaud the growing number of communities now banning foam and/or plastic bags. http://www.greenlinepaper.com/kitchen-restaurant.html
