We have all accomplished so much and made so
progress promoting Green Cleaning and protecting the
health of our environment.
Here at The Ashkin Group,
we have grown as well. As just one small
example, this newsletter has grown from fewer than
50 subscribers at the first of the year to more than
1,000 with this issue.
And, 2006 promises to be even better, with new
opportunities and possibilities awaiting us,
especially if we take the time to plan ahead, set
some goals, and develop a winning - Green - business
We hear a lot about asthma problems in
America's schools. In fact, in some cities such as
Chicago, asthma and respiratory problems have
increased as much as 160 percent. However,
workplace asthma is a problem as well. Recently a
study in England found just how serious the problem
is - and is growing.
In the last several issues of
DestinationGreen, we have reported
about global warming. This is because many experts
believe it is one of the most serious problems
affecting the world today. This article examines
the debate further and discusses the economic
implications for the U.S. for not supporting the
Kyoto Accord regarding limiting greenhouse gasses.
Few chemicals on the planet enjoy more use than
bisphenol A, an industrial chemical used primarily
to make polycarbonate plastic. We come into
with it every day in tin-can linings, CDs,
electronics, sports equipment, cars, and baby
bottles, just to name a few. But is it safe?
Can a car company be called Green? Sure,
notion may seem far-fetched, but if anyone can, it
might be Toyota. The Japanese auto maker has
great mileage lately out of its Prius
gasoline/electric hybrid. Toyota has sold over
400,000 of these fuel-sippers and is now expanding
its hybrid lineup by at least 10 other vehicles.
A three day conference in San Francisco,
California, makes it pretty clear that socially
responsible, i.e. Green businesses, are the way to
go. And - its not just for treehuggers any more.
Each month we select one organization that is
contributing to a healthier environment.
This month our Group of the Month honors the
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for its new
"Healthy Schools Environment" Web site.
More than 53 million children and about 6 million
adults spend a significant portion of their days in
more than 120,000 public and private school
buildings. Many of these buildings are old and in
poor condition, and may contain environmental
conditions that inhibit learning and pose increased
risks to the health of children and staff.
The Healthy School Environments web site is
designed to provide one-stop access to the many
programs and resources available to help prevent and
resolve environmental issues in schools.
