It’s that time again in USerland. Fireworks will once more fill the atmosphere with particulate matter and numerous heavy metals to be inhaled by human and non-human animals alike. These ‘delightful’ aerial displays rain down billions of plastic pieces to pollute our waterways and soil year after year. Let alone the noise pollution. Something to think about on the Fourth, New Year’s and any other fireworks worthy celebratory occasion. Please inform your family, friends and community of the toxic and environmental dangers of fireworks. Fireworks are deadly for numerous reasons. There are safer alternatives. Just say no to fireworks.
