Identify harmful substances

protecting the environment

It's important to minimise the harmful substances that we discharge into our environment. This may be as simple as switching to a natural vehicle cleaner and making sure that used water drains through soil. It means disposing of special waste properly eg oil, batteries, paints and gases. (check with your local supplier or council for disposal details)
