April Means Spring Cleaning and Earth Day

  Earth Day, Carbon Footprint and Plastic Bags,  oh my….

 April 22 is Earth Day, an internationally recognized event that began over 40 years ago.  Today, individuals and responsible companies are helping to build a greener, sustainable, healthier and cleaner future.  There are many informative websites and resources that provide information on everyday things that you can do to help the environment from tips on better recycling to reducing car idle time, turning off lights, eliminating toxic cleaning chemicals and reducing your carbon footprint.

 Most people see the importance of recyling and understand the hazards of toxic chemicals, many people really do not understand what “carbon footprint” really means.  An understandable definition of carbon footprint that I’ve read is “the amount of energy used by yourself, an organization, an event, or product to sustain itself”.  In other words, the total amount of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse emissions required.  This sounds reasonable.  But, as I learned, other factors need to be considered in the calculation.  I’ll use an example that I read about – The familiar grocery plastic bag.  Apparently, China as part of their pursuit of a greener and cleaner future, has prohibited the use of the thin plastic bags in an effort to sway consumers to use reusable cloth bags.  Here’s the challenge.  A new study by the Environmental Agency of England found that the thin plastic bags actually have a smaller carbon footprint than the reusable cloth bags and even disposable paper bags.  According to their findings, you would have to reuse a cotton bag at least 131 times to equal the carbon footprint of a plastic bag (USA Today).  Furthermore, if you reuse plastic bags, say as garbage liners, the difference is even greater.

The point of this short post is simply to suggest making informed decisions while acting responsibly to do your part in recycling and reducing harmful chemicals in your home and environment.  And, as far as plastic bags ..I think the jury is still out on this one.  I recently also found myself in a conversation comparing cloth diapers to plastic diapers and use this post as an example.

The Best Way to Remove Odors from Refrigerator and Freezer

Tips on how to eliminate even the toughest odors from your refrigerator.  When should you use Activated Charcoal instead of baking soda?


A common question that we get all the time is “Does baking soda really work to get rid of smelly refrigerator odor”.   Well, our answer is yes and no.   Here’s why.    Baking soda doesn’t really eliminate odors all that well.  An open box of baking soda in your refrigerator will absorb some odors, especially if the odors in your refrigerator are “acidic”.  The alkaline baking soda can absorb many of these odors.  But, even then, as the powder in the box contacts water vapor, it tends to cake over and lose most of its effectiveness.

 

So, the bottom line is that baking soda does work for some odors and for a limited time can be reasonably effective.  However, if you are looking for the better odor absorber, activated charcoal wins hands down.   The fact is that activated charcoal or activated carbon is an incredible odor absorber and we recommend it, particularly if the odors are particularly bad and for odors that are not “acidic”.     Activated carbon is the natural material that is used in water treatment facilities and even in the medical field for its ability to absorb contaminents.    The natural material “carbon” is treated in a process that produces a highly porous material which “activates” it so that it can absorb an incredible amount of odors and contaminants.

Fridge IT and Innofresh activated carbon odor absorbers provide superior and long-lasting odor elimination for the toughest odors.   Our micro-vac technology produces a highly absorbent natural odor eliminator with ventilated activated charcoal.   Save money and time with this 21st century solution to eliminating odors – whether in your refrigerator, freezer or other musty, smelly areas in your home, pet areas, car, dorm, basement and much more.
