Comments Off on Partnership Forms to Recycle Waste in the Antarctic

If recycling seems difficult to you, just think about what it’s like in other parts of the world — like ones at the end of the earth. In 1962, the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) began to participate in regulating developments at “the bottom” of the…

Comments Off on China Has More Shale Gas Than US, But Faces Bigger Technological, Environmental Hurdles

EIA /Public Domain If you’re opposed to fracking for natural gas in the US you well may have enough on your ming that thinking about fracking in other parts of the world would overflow your compassion threshold, but here’s a glimpse of the situation in China, which has considerably more shale gas reserves than exist in the US (1.3 trillion cubic feet versus 862 cubic feet, according to the EIA). … Read the full story on TreeHugger

How can I reuse or recycle breathing machine parts?

Comments Off on How can I reuse or recycle breathing machine parts?

We’ve had an email from Dee, who first asked if it’s ok for people from the US to ask questions (it sure is!), then explained: I currently use a CPAP machine and Medicare replaces the parts fairly frequently and I am unsure what to do with the “old” parts. I mean, I know some people may have a “problem” with recycling/reusing breathing type supplies but I hate just throwing the items away when perhaps they could be sterilized and used by someone who can’t afford the supplies and may otherwise suffer with sleep apnea. Disposable plastic medical equipment (rather than sterilisable metal) really grinds my gears but from what I’ve read, this doesn’t seem to be just throwing something away for the sake out it – CPAP machine parts seem to need replacing due to wear and tear, which reduces efficiency and you don’t really want to reduce efficiency of something that is keeping you oxygenated
