What's In Your Water?
If you live in Loudoun County it appears there is plenty of Chromium. Chromium-6 to be exact.
According to Loudoun Water Systems Chromium 6 testing found:
"All 2 water systems tested positive for chromium-6.
25 out of 26 samples tested positive for chromium-6.
Average: 0.322 ppb
Range: ND - 1.20 ppb
California Public Health Goal: 0.02 ppb
Systems Containing Chromium-6"- -http://www.ewg.org/interactive-maps/2016-chromium6-system.php?pws_id=VA6107350
So what does this mean to you? Remember Erin Brokovich?
"In the film "Erin Brockovich," the environmental crusader confronts the lawyer of a power company that polluted the tap water of Hinkley, Calif., with a carcinogenic chemical called chromium-6. When the lawyer picks up a glass of water, Brockovich says: "We had that water brought in 'specially for you folks. Came from a well in Hinkley." The lawyer sets down the glass and says, "I think this meeting's over."
But almost 25 years after that real-life confrontation, the conflict over chromium-6 is not over. A new EWG analysis of federal data from nationwide drinking water tests shows that the compound contaminates water supplies for more than 200 million Americans in all 50 states. Yet federal regulations are stalled by a chemical industry challenge that could mean no national regulation of a chemical state scientists in California and elsewhere say causes cancer when ingested at even extraordinarily low levels.
ARE YOU OUTRAGED? US TOO. TAKE ACTION TODAY!
Are you ready to take the next step? Join EWG and tell the EPA it's time to take action on chromium-6 contamination in drinking water." -EWG

What is your Carbon Footprint?
We hear a lot about "Carbon Footprints," these days. But what exactly does it mean? And, more importantly, how can you reduce yours?
According to Wikipedia: "A carbon footprint is historically defined as "the total set of greenhouse gas emissions caused by an [individual, event, organisation, product] expressed as CO2e.""
And we all have heard that greenhouse gases are contributing to Global Warming. According to the Climate Institute: "Climate scientists are nearly unanimous in their agreement that human CO2 emissions are the driving force behind climate change. Over 97% of climate scientists say earth is warming, and that human activities are causing it. As far as scientists are concerned, there is no debate about whether climate change is real, or whether we are causing it."-read more here: http://climate.org/humansandthegreenhouseffect/
