Every year, households in America tend to generate about 100 pounds of
Hazardous Household Waste (HHW). KNOW WHAT is in YOUR HOME! HHW ranges
from: paints and drain cleaners to fluorescent bulbs and used motor oil.
Go through your home to investigate and tally HHW sources. By checking
under sinks, in cabinets, the basement and garage you will find the
majority of HHW.
Challenge: Choose three standard cleaning products that are considered
HHW and find a way to replace them with a safer alternative. Example: a
plunger is an alternative to harsh chemicals used to un-clog drains.
