Spray the exposed area with Krylon Chalkboard Paint in Black. Wait an hour before adding a second layer. Continue the process of waiting and adding chalkboard paint coats until you’ve reached six to seven coats of paint. Let the waste basket dry before gradually peeling off the craft paper. Allow the chalkboard paint to cure for three to four days before using with chalk.
To make matters worse, if all stimulation of plastic to the NPG was stopped immediately, today, it is unclear how many hundreds (or thousands?) of years it would take to return it to a pre-plastic garbage dump state. What is clear is that if we continue to generate plastic Pyrolysis oil, whether it be intentionally put in a landfill or unwittingly dumped in the NPG, the well-being of our ecosystems, and really, the health of our kids is at risk.
Imagine if you will, instead, a pea soup-like mix of broken down kewpie dolls. Of swirling around in the water over the years, the plastic which makes up the kewpie doll is physically broken into smaller and smaller pieces. If at all, it does not biodegrade in a timely matter. The pieces are identifiable with the naked eye, yet they remain. And they become part of the food chain, with people as the apex predator.
At first I used a Nalgene bottle, but like most folks upon learning more about the risks of PCBs (Polychlorinated biphenyls) I retired my trusty UC Santa Cruz Nalgene. Soon there after, I jumped on the Kleen Kanteen train. I decided to shift towards an alternative kind of reusable water bottle, a corked, 750 ml, glass bottle though I still use my Kleen Kanteen from time to time.
4) As you likely already understand, plastics to fuel is tough on the surroundings. If you quit purchasing bottled water and switch to reusable stainless steel or glass bottles, you’ll be helping the environment.
What if you do not enjoy the taste of tap water? For example, here in Austin, every autumn and spring, the tap water tastes like alga. The alternative is simple: a water filter. You may also purchase one which attaches to the tap so you don’t have to fill up a Brita pitcher.
All of us understand that we should be drinking more but it’s very expensive to buy bottled water. It’s not really kind to the environment either as it creates mountains of pyrolysis diesel, most of which ends up in landfill sites.
Turn your blue, black and red green. Instead of routine pencils, use Paper Mate Biodegradable Retractable Medium Point Ballpoint Pens which are available in 4 Colored inks; and most of the parts of these pens are biodegradeable when disposed of.
