Buy What You Use and Use What You Buy. In other words, if you only need three gallons of paint do not buy five gallons.
Read and Follow Label Directions. For example, if a pesticide label says to mix it at a maximum rate of two ounces per gallon of water, do not use four ounces.
Do Not Mix Chemicals. Other than as directed on the label. The chemicals could react resulting in a dangerous mixture that could give off dangerous vapors or even explode. In addition, mixing chemicals can make it more difficult and expensive to dispose of waste chemicals.
Rotate Product Using Oldest Material First.
Keep Containers Closed. It minimizes evaporation, thus saving product and reducing costs. It also prevents contamination from rain or other sources.
Ensure Chemicals Are Properly Labeled. Improperly labeled materials and wastes can result in accidents and/or increased disposal costs.
Ensure Containers Are In Good Condition. Old containers are subject to rust, cracking and leaking.
Dispose of Old Chemicals You No Longer Use. That old can of pesticides in the garage or the old drum of product in the storeroom of a business can end up being a major environmental problem.
Recycle/Reuse Solvents As Long As They Will Still Do The Job.
P2 WASH DAY TIPS
Using cold water instead of hot when washing clothes can reduce the energy used per load by up to 90%; and it usually helps your fabrics last longer.
When possible try to save energy and water by washing only full loads.
When drying clothes, try using a clothesline. The sun's energy is free.
Try to use a lower temperature setting for your dryer. You can save energy and help fabrics last longer.
Reduce drying time and energy by making sure that the exhaust vent is clear.
Clean the lint filter frequently. A clogged filter obstructs air flow and is a potential fire hazard.
