cannot hurt anybody.

Is Your Gas Furnace Safe?

In most houses, externally vented
central furnaces fueled with natural gas pose no indoor pollution problem
when properly designed and maintained. However, if there is a faulty
exhaust system (like a blocked flue), of if there are cracks and leaks in
the pipes or improper adjustment of the burner, or if there is lower air
pressure indoors than outside, the furnace can create serious indoor air
pollution. If you suspect incomplete combustion or leakage in a gas furnace
or other appliance, call your local utility company or a heating contractor
who can test carbon monoxide levels.

Sustainability World

I think that the most succinct
definition I can come up with is “the introduction of any substance or
agent into an environment which has a detrimental effect on the ecosystem
of that environment.” For the purposes of this discussion, the only form of
pollution which will be considered is that emanating from Man’s activities.

How Toxic Is Your Shower?

by Care2 Studies have found disinfecting chemicals can be absorbed into
your skin and lungs if you don?t filter them out first. One easy way you
can do that is by installing a shower water filter. True, water filtration
may not have as much cache as carrying a reusable bottle or the searching
out an organic cosmetics line.

Following is a list of myths about energy and energy savings. Sometimes the
basic premise is correct, but the energy savings are much smaller than
people realize. In other cases the myth is based on factors that were once
true but have been subsequently resolved through better design or
manufacturing of products.
