That oil spill in your garage is an eyesore, but if you work with chemicals, motor oil or other hazardous liquids that may spill, having the right absorbent handy is a necessity. If you are environmentally conscious and deal with hazardous waste that causes spills, Sphagsorb is a great option, compared to other absorbents. While kitty litter and dishwashing detergent are cheap ways to pick up most of a small oil leak or spill, they may not cover a large spill very well and are certain to allow an oily seepage. Here’s why Sphagsorb is a great choice for spills large and small: It is Safe and Absorbent Traditional absorbents are carcinogenic, and that is a harmful thing to be exposed to. People and animals are safe to touch and breathe around Spagsorb. Peat moss made of partially fossilized plant matter, Sphagsorb is an all-natural solution to disposing of leaks and spills. Affordable and Eco-Friendly Spill Absorbent The plentiful and renewable materials that make up Sphagsorb provide a cost effective alternative to traditional spill absorbents, and Sphasorb works just as well or better than competitive brands. Because it is made up of partially fossilized plant life, Sphagsorb is biodegradable, unlike other spill absorbents. If you are Earth conscious, when you send your mess to the landfill, you can feel better that it will compost down like organic matter, rather than staying in its current form for decades. Sphagsorb expands and encapsulates all of the liquid and hazardous material that is soaks up, so it becomes more absorbent and takes less absorbent to a big job. Because it encapsulates the...Learn More
Controlled burns can have great benefits to your pasture or grassland, but be sure to put safety first during controlled grass fires. At least one Iowa man has been injured by an out of control grass fire this year. Controlled burns will make the grass look fresh in just a few days’ time, getting rid of all the ugly brown grass and weeds left behind by the Iowa winter. But that may be the least of the benefits. Grass fires kill ticks and parasitic worms that hide in the old grass. Burning dead grass provides more immediate nutrients for new foliage and allows it to come in thicker and without being smothered by bunches of long grass. Be Prepared in Case Grass Fire Gets Out of Control Benjamin Franklin said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” This strategy can easily be put to use when it comes to controlled grass fires. Burns and smoke inhalation can take you out of commission, costing you time off work, medical bill payments and more. Armed with the Right Equipment for Fire Safety Have what it takes to stop a fire in its tracks and contain it to the area you want to burn. Water Sprayers – Always have one more water sprayer than you think you will need. Livestock sprayers work well on most burns. Water Pumps- If you need a means of filling water sprayers from a creek or pond, you may want to have a gas powered water pump on hand. Handheld Blower – These work well for moving burning leaf debris, but always blow back...Learn More
It’s that time of the year again when planning new playgrounds, renovating old ones, and just taking kids to the park is on the forefront. Be prepared to save the day with first aid supplies at the playground or ballpark. Playground safety, as it applies to new equipment and the first aid supplies that are available, should be considered. Getting outside after a long Eastern Iowa winter is fun and exciting – until somebody gets injured in a fall or cut on faulty equipment. Helpful Tips for Keeping Kids Safe Outdoors This spring the roller blades and jump ropes will come out of the garage and the kids will start bouncing on the trampoline again, so having a fully stocked first aid kit for kids in the house and in the car is important. Roller blading injuries can be kept to a minimum if your child is wearing the right safety equipment, such as knee pads, elbow pads and a helmet. When it comes to trampolines, that safety net to keep kids from falling off or getting stuck is so important. Whether you’re headed out to the backyard, the park, the ball fields or the bike trails, there are some basic first aid kit supplies that you should have just in case an injury occurs.
