Think Twice About That Outdoor Fire!

Smoke from burning leaves and wood may seem harmless, but it’s as dangerous as cigarette smoke ‑ and can contribute to birth defects, cancer and lung disease.

Though most people have stopped burning garbage because it’s illegal and can carry large fines, many continue to burn yard waste, not realizing the damage it can do, or the fact that it’s banned in many areas. Rather than risk your health and that of your family, consider clean, healthy alternatives instead.
