"For the first time in the history of the world, every human being is now subjected to contact with dangerous chemicals, from the moment of conception until death."
-- Rachel Carson, Silent Spring, 1962
We are surrounded by countless sources of chemicals that can affect our health. But there is something we can do to reduce our personal exposure to these toxins, as well as their impact on the environment. EcoSuperior offers several programs to help you make wise choices.
- Hormone Disruptors - learn where they are found and how to avoid these chemicals that affect our hormone systems.
- Housecleaning Without Harm - try a greener cleaning routine.
- Pharmaceutical Disposal - protect our water by properly disposing of unused and expired medications.
- Personal Care Products - reduce your exposure to harmful chemicals by choosing personal care products wisely.
- Don’t Burn Garbage - use your local landfill and recycling facilities rather than turning your trash into toxic smoke and ash.
- Thermostat Recycling - have your old thermostat replaced or drop off your mercury-containing thermostat to make sure it’s disposed of responsibly.
- Fluorescent Light Recycling - Fluorescent lights contain trace amounts of mercury. Rather than disposing of burnt out fluorescent lights in the garbage you can recycle them at our depot.
Children's Environmental Health - The Thunder Bay District Health Unit offers lots of resources and presentations on issues specific to children's health.
