Jarring Shoulder Pain Gone with the Wind

I ended up looking into Sacramento chiropractors because of years of shoulder pain that was really starting to take a toll on my overall sense of well being. I worked for years as a sanitation worker in the city and retired about five years ago. I had a lot of aches and pains from that job, obviously, due to lifting heavy cans full of garbage. You would often pull muscles because you thought a can was light only to discover someone had something that weighed fifty pounds in the bottom of it. All of us were constantly pulling muscles and hurting our backs because of it.

I figured those days were over after I retired, but for some reason I started experiencing severe shoulder pain. It was a grinding pain that just sucked all the energy out of my life and I spent most days just grumping around the house feeling miserable. I looked forward to taking up golf, but that was impossible due to the pain. Read more

Paper Bags, Your Eco-Friendly Companion

Much has been debated about the advantages of using paper bags over their sturdy companion – plastic bags. Although it still remains a matter of dispute and will continue to be, the question that lingers on is – Are we depleting the mother nature of its resources much faster than we are supposed to?

Let’s go back to where it all started. Timber, the raw material used for making paper is the main source of our concern. With depleting forest cover, it has become a reason to panic. One tree is destroyed for making approximately 8000 sheets of non-recyclable paper.

The Meaning and Reasons For Sustainable Development

Sustainable development is the strategic development of structures that seek to meet the needs of present and future generations through effective management and maintenance of the resources in the environment.

The main aim of sustainable development is to ensure that the present environmental needs of humans do not encroach on those that the future generations would also need and use. It is bent on sustaining thus ‘maintaining’ or ‘preserving’ the bio-resources that we have now so that the future generations would also have them in ample supply. An “unsustainable situation” occurs when natural capital (the sum total of nature’s resources) is used up faster than it can be replenished or replaced. Sustainability requires that human activity only uses nature’s resources at a rate at which they can be replenished naturally.

Sustainable development is essential and relevant to the preservation and sustenance of our rich resources in nature. Some of the reasons and relevance of sustainable development are discussed below.

i. To preserve and have enough resources for future

It is very important to sustain the resources in the environment to ensure that they will not be in short supply in the future. If

How a Recycling Company Helps Protect and Preserve the Environment

A recycling company takes on the noble task of transforming unwanted materials into new, usable products, as opposed to discarding them as trash. Because of the dedication and services of these businesses, the earth and its inhabitants benefit greatly.

Reducing Landfill Waste

The Environmental Protection Agency of the United States (EPA) says that one of the many benefits of reusing materials is reducing the amount of waste sent to landfills. The Agency also states that nearly 55% of trash is sent to landfills. Because the trash is buried and therefore takes an extremely long time to decompose, the environment suffers.

The waste buried in these areas contaminates the groundwater and the soil while producing a powerful greenhouse gas called methane. This gas is even more potent than carbon dioxide. Not only is this harmful for the environment as a whole, but it’s also particularly unsafe for those who may live close by. Luckily, a recycling company gives people the option to significantly reduce the waste buried in landfills, thereby helping to protect and preserve the atmosphere.

Conserving Natural Resources

According to data released by the EPA in 2006, recycling saved six million

Electronic Wastes Recycling Standards

Having a lot of electronic wastes accumulating and do not know what to do with it? An electronic recycler certainly helps in this regard. It is very important for companies to securely erase data from the device before it is recycled properly and get a report after that. It is a duty on the company’s part to handle the toxic wastes diligently so as not to harm its employees.

Earlier many companies used to dump their electronic wastes in empty landfills or would even ship to foreign seas illegally. However, after the advent of electronic recyclers thing have changed. There are mainly two accredited electronic recycling standards available in the market. They are R2 certification and e-Stewards certification. Although both the certifications are quite similar to each other, there are different on some grounds. Finding a vendor for both the certifications is easy, so one can be in a dilemma about which one to opt for.

Comparison between R2 and e-Steward Certification

Similarities

• Both the standards share a common objective and their goal is to ensure proper processing and disposal of the electronic wastes under controlled environment adhering to the standards set.

How To Recycle Electronic Waste With Responsibility

One of the fastest growing contributors to the waste stream is electronic waste. It is increasing at a rate three times faster than other types of waste. From mobile phones to televisions, batteries, computers and other electronic appliances, many of our gadgets are polluting the environment and filling up landfills. So it is of utmost importance to recycle our electronic products responsibly and as soon as possible. The primary thing though is it should also be known which components can be reused in new products.

What can we recycle?

According to a survey, about 90% of the components in televisions and computers can be recycled. But every year more than 1.5 million electronic waste are dumped in landfills. Nearly all household electrical gadgets like televisions, hair dryers, mobile phones, toasters, stereos and laundry machines can be recycled as they contain valuable resources. For example, zinc, aluminium, glass, plastic and nickel can all be manufactured and repurposed into new products.

Responsible recycling

After a certain period of time, it is obvious that all electronic equipment will stop working or become redundant. So it is very important to know how to dispose your e-waste responsibly

Water Recycling – Is It Right for You?

Since drought and water conservation measures are taking place across much of the U.S., you may have heard about gray water recycling or reclamation. But what is gray water recycling, and is it right for you? Can it help you save money? Will it benefit water conservation efforts in your area?

What is Gray Water?

Gray water is all water waste that does not include sewage – in other words, all used water from your home or business except what has been flushed through the toilet. Clear water from the tap is “white” water, and sewage water is “black” water, thus gray water is a class in between – not clean enough for human consumption, but not seriously contaminated.

Uses for Recycled Water

The main uses for recycled gray water are toilet flushing and landscape/crop irrigation. There are few risks to using it for use in a toilet tank. A separate plumbing system is installed in the home, which operates like a mini sewage treatment facility on a household level.

There are things to consider before moving forward with a plan to use it for garden or crop irrigation, however. There

4 Money-Making Tips in the Medical Waste Industry

Waste is the one thing the world will always have. As human beings, we collectively produce tons of waste every single day. From your everyday household waste, biohazardous waste produced by large industries, medical waste produced by the healthcare industry, infectious waste, retail waste, electronic waste, the list is endless. In terms of food waste alone, Wired Magazine reports that Americans throw away as much as half of the food they eat.

It’s not a surprise then that waste disposal is a billion-dollar industry because, let’s face it, with all the waste we produce, someone’s gotta take out the trash. And it’s not just as simple as taking it out but to properly dispose of it to ensure that the waste we produce isn’t harmful to our environment.

You don’t normally think about it, but every single piece of waste you produce should be disposed of in the right way. For example, if you happen to have extra cans of paint at home, you can’t simply throw them in the trash bin and that’s that – nope. Your extra cans of paint are classified as hazardous waste and to throw it away, you will need
