“WILL RUBBER MULCH MAKE YOU SAFE OR SORRY?” Donna Jones &Rachel Slaughter on Green Time TV

Did you know that rubber tires are full of toxins that are skin and eye irritants and that their chemicals can stunt the growth of plants and contaminate ground water?  For years, tires have been considered a hazardous waste.  But now, they are being ground up for rubber mulch to be put on children’s playgrounds and used in yards.  Donna Jones, Elected Member of St. Louis School Board, and University City resident Rachel Slaughter discuss dangers of rubber mulch with host Don Fitz.  They cover a variety of toxins and look at why government would encourage the use of rubber mulch.  This Green Time (No. 455) includes the short movie “The Hazards of Rubber Mulch.” It is produced by the Gateway Greens in conjunction with KNLC Channel 24.  Call 314-727-8554 or contact [email protected] for info.
