Displaying items by tag: household how to make simple changes towards an eco-friendly lifestyle? Have you wondered where to buy your organic food and goods locally? Or how to be more energy efficient? Do you know what is recyclable in Belgium? We do - or we know someone who does! This site is intended to be an information rescource and focal point for ecologically minded people living in and around Brussels. Please revisit the site often, because we update it on a regular basis. http://www.sunbeams.eu Sat, 02 Aug 2014 06:31:35 +0000 Joomla! 1.5 - Open Source Content Management en-gb Get Cleaner Air in Your Homes with Houseplants http://www.sunbeams.eu/index.php/information/our-articles/item/175-get-cleaner-air-in-your-homes-with-houseplants http://www.sunbeams.eu/index.php/information/our-articles/item/175-get-cleaner-air-in-your-homes-with-houseplants Get Cleaner Air in Your Homes with Houseplants

Houseplants are nice additions to homes and they do more than act as décors. Did you know that houseplants are useful for purifying the air you breathe in your home? By adding a few, choice, low maintenance house plants, we can help keep the air inside our homes clean and pure - eliminating pollutants and toxins, counteracting off-gassed chemicals and contributing to balanced internal humidity.

The first step to having clean indoor air starts with opening windows every day to air out the house. Rain or shine, airing out the house for a short while (10-15 minutes is all that is required) is the key. Try to do this before 9am and after 4pm, when the air is heavier, so less toxins and pollution come into your homes.

Next step is choosing which indoor plants you bring into your home. Not all plants are created equal! Some are more effective than others at keeping your house air clean. There have been several studies conducted on the effects of indoor plants. In the late 1980s, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) conducted many studies evaluating the beneficial effects of plants indoors.

The NASA study notes: Two of the key ingredients which have contributed to today’s potentially serious indoor air pollution problems are tightly constructed buildings with dramatically reduced ventilation rates and the radical change in the nature of building materials and household furnishings. Add to this, new household products such as cleaning and polishing solutions, insecticides, glues, personal hygiene and health care products, along with numerous electronic devices and radon gas and you have the ingredients for serious health problems…” “Indoor air pollution and ‘sick building syndrome’ can contribute to symptoms such as allergies, asthma, eye, nose and throat irritations, headaches, fatigue, sinus and respiratory congestion. “

Given the amount of time we spend indoors, whether at work or at home, (or in some cases, both!), we can be spending an awfully large amount of time with these hundreds or so of pollutants!

If these all sounds a bit scary, here is the good news. Plants live and grow thanks to a photosynthetic process. This process requires a continuous exchange of gaseous substances between plant leaves and the surrounding atmosphere. The most common gaseous substances exchanged are carbon dioxide, oxygen and water vapor. A plant’s leaves normally give off water vapors and oxygen, and take in carbon dioxide. The NASA study provides evidence that plant leaves can also take in other gaseous substances from the surrounding atmosphere through tiny openings (stomates) on their leaves. In fact, both plant leaves and roots can be used in removing trace levels of toxic vapors.

The most common air pollutants found indoors are formaldehyde, benzene, and trichloroethylene. Formaldehyde is used in many building materials, including particle board and foam insulations. It is also found in many cleaning products. Benzene is a common solvent found in oils and paints. Trichloroethylene is used in paints, adhesives, inks, and varnishes.

The advantage that houseplants have over other plants is that they are adapted to tropical areas where they grow beneath dense tropical canopies and must survive in areas of low light. These plants are thus ultra-efficient at capturing light, which also means that they must be very efficient in processing the gases necessary for photosynthesis. Because of this fact, they have greater potential to absorb other gases, including potentially harmful ones. NASA also noted that some plants are better than others in treating certain chemicals.

For example, English ivy, gerbera daisies, pot mums, peace lily, bamboo palm, and mother- in-law's tongue were found to be the best plants for treating air contaminated with benzene. The peace lily, gerbera daisy, and bamboo palm were very effective in treating trichloroethylene.

Additionally, NASA found that the bamboo palm, mother-in-law's tongue, dracaena warneckei, peace lily, dracaena marginata, golden pathos, and green spider plant worked well for filtering formaldehyde.

Here is a list of some plants that are among the most effective all-around.

  • Aloe
  • Areca palm
  • Reed palm
  • Dwarf date palm
  • Boston fern
  • Janet Craig, Warneck, and/or cornstalk dracaena
  • English ivy
  • Spider plant
  • Australian sword fern
  • Peace Lily
  • Rubber plant
  • Weeping fig
  • Apothos
  • Bamboo Palm
  • Chinese Evergreen

If you have pets you will need to be more careful what plants you choose for your home. Avoid growing these 12 houseplants that are considered toxic for pets:

  • Aloe Vera
  • Boston ivy
  • Caladium
    Dumb cane
    English ivy
    German ivy
    India rubber plant
    Mistletoe
    Philodendron
    Potted chrysanthemum
    Weeping fig
    Yew
    Caladium
  • Dumb cane
  • English ivy
  • German ivy
  • India rubber plant
  • Mistletoe
  • Philodendron
  • Potted chrysanthemum
  • Weeping fig
  • Yew

Keep in mind that you will need approximately 1 plant for every 8-9 square meters of space. Plants can also offer additional benefits such as stress reduction, increased productivity and creativity, as well as noise reduction.

Once you’ve got the plants figured out, keep your environment healthy by avoiding air fresheners (plug-ins, sprays, candles, etc). Toxic-free candles can be found at bio stores and you can also try beeswax candles.

Working in the kitchen stresses your hands. Having a good hand scrub handy will make it easier for your skin. Here is a very simple recipe from Good Life Eats (check there for US measurements), which only uses sugar, salt, lemon and olive oil. Incidentally, olive oil works great for baby skin, too.

  • 350 ml sugar
  • 170 ml salt
  • zest of 1 extra large lemon (or other citrus)
  • 240 ml olive oil
  • 120 ml pure lemon extract, optional

Just mix everything together and put in jars.

  • There are many eco-friendly alternatives for traditional cleaning products: why not try out new brands like e.g. Ecover? They have the whole range of products from toilet cleaners to whitening washing powders.
  • Dishwashing machines work equally well with products from eco-friendly brands like e.g. Ecover
  • For  washing machines there are many alternatives: Omnio Bianco marseille, Froggy and Ecover have powders and liquid (and Ecover has a very effective product to treat dirty stains with before washing in the machine), or try the magnetic washing balls, or washing nuts (available in bio shops)
  • Have you tried washing your windows with vinegar or products like Ecover before?
  • Think of your health and use eco-friendly scents based on essential oils for your home and especially for your toilets!

if you have any tips to share, or products to recommend, please let us know and we will add them to our advice section.

Stop the Advertising Stampede http://www.sunbeams.eu/index.php/participate/-take-a-small-step/item/72-stop-the-advertising-stampede http://www.sunbeams.eu/index.php/participate/-take-a-small-step/item/72-stop-the-advertising-stampede

IBGM mailbox stickerAre you coming home and find your mailbox overflowing with supermarket advertising, catalogues and free trying to lure you into spending your money? Not only does it clutter up your mail and seduces you to part with your hard-earned euros, it is also a huge waste of paper and other ressources. There are a few steps you can take to reduce the advertising stampede:

  1. Go to the website of the Brussels Environment Website and have them send you their mailbox sticker (Flanders version here, Walloon version here). It allows you to indicate to the postman and other "suppliers" what exactly you want and do not want in your mailbox. This is an official sticker, which means you can actually launch a complaint when it is ignored. Note that infos from your Commune will still come through since they are not considered "presse gratuite/gratis bladen".
  2. Sign up to the Robinson List. Once you have done this, the 450 or so members of the Belgian Association of Direct Marketing should no longer send you their stuff. By the way, this also works for phone marketing.
  3. Contact the company directly, if there is no other way to make them stop sending you material.
  4. If you get customer publications from your insurance company, supermarket of choice or mobile phone provider, find out if they have an electronic version (mostly a PDF) on their website - one example is Electrabel's Energique magazine. Some communes also post their magazine as a PDF on their website.
  5. For more ideas on how to reduce paper - such as getting invoices by e-mail instead of snail mail - check the "Gestes pratiques" section at IBGM or the Mailbox Zero tips on Good.is.

Household Cleaning Ingredients to Avoid http://www.sunbeams.eu/index.php/information/our-articles/item/49-household-cleaning-ingredients-to-avoid http://www.sunbeams.eu/index.php/information/our-articles/item/49-household-cleaning-ingredients-to-avoid

triclosanFor health and environmental reasons, many of us do our best to eat organic produce and free-range meat, or even give up meat altogether. Likewise, we may try to be conscious of the body products we use, making sure that they do not contain harmful or irritating ingredients. While we pay attention to what we ingest and what we use on our bodies, we may be less mindful of the household cleaning products we use, thinking that they will not harm us anyway.

On the contrary, they can harm us. Conventional household products are a big source of indoor air pollutants due to their ingredients. They contain irritating and even carcinogenic components that enter our bodies through inhalation and skin contact. After usage, the harmful ingredients persist in the environment, cause harm to nature, and eventually end up in our bodies through the food we eat.

Have a look at your current cleaning products and when shopping, carefully study the ingredients listed on the cleaning products you may consider buying. There are many alternative products in Belgium (and elsewhere) found in conventional supermarkets or alternative shops. Here is a list of some ingredients from conventional household cleaning products to avoid:

Phosphates

Phosphate is a water-softening agent commonly found in laundry and dishwashing detergents. It contributes to algal blooms in bodies of water, which lead to oxygen deprivation and eventual death of aquatic life. This phenomenon of eutrophication is currently a critical threat to the Baltic Sea and the long-standing call to ban phosphates in detergents in the EU is intensifying. It is interesting to note that Germany has banned phosphates in laundry detergents as early as the 1980's.

Alkyl Phenol Ethoxylates (APEs)

These are surfactants often found in laundry detergents, stain removers and all-purpose cleaners. They are suspected hormone disruptors. They biodegrade into alkylphenols which are highly toxic to aquatic organisms.

Ammonium Quaternary Compounds

These compounds are often found in all-purpose cleaners. They are corrosive, can cause severe allergic reactions, can produce systemic toxicity and can cause asthma.

Triclosan

This ingredient is often found in anti-bacterial dishwashing products, as well as in personal care products with anti-bacterial properties. It may cause skin irritation and it is linked to liver and inhalation toxicity. It may disrupt thyroid functions even at low levels.

Triclosan is toxic to aquatic organisms and bioaccumulates in fish tissue. It also bioaccumulates in human tissue and has been detected in blood, urine and breast milk samples of humans. It degrades into other toxic compounds including the dioxin methyl triclosan and chloroform, which are both suspected carcinogens.

While its necessity and its efficacy (compared to plain old soap and water) have not been established, triclosan has been overused in consumer products to a point that it may contribute to bacterial resistance to antibiotics.

Diethanolamine (DEA) and triethanolamine (TEA)

These ingredients are in detergents and cleansers to create suds. They can react with nitrosomes (preservatives which are often undisclosed) and produce carcinogens which enter the skin. DEAs can affect hormones and cell-functioning and development.

Glycol ethers (such as butyl cellosolve and ethylene glycol monobutyl ether)

Conventional spot removers, all-purpose cleaners and glass cleaners often contain this type of solvent. When they evaporate, they are easily absorbed by the skin and eventually accumulate in fatty tissues. They can cause hormone disruption, birth defects and infertility. It is also a lung-tissue irritant.

Synthetic Perfumes/Fragrance and Phthalates

Most harmful chemicals have long complicated names but don't be fooled when you see the single word "fragrance" or "perfume." When synthetically produced and not sourced from natural essential oils, fragrance is actually a concoction of many chemicals, even numbering up to the thousands.

Petrochemical-sourced fragrance ingredients are poorly degradable, affect aquatic life and insects and accumulate in our food chain.

Phthalates are common components of synthetic fragrances. It is believed to disrupt the endocrine system and it mimics the female hormone estrogen. Long-term exposure to this chemical may cause liver and kidney damage.

Ammonia

This ingredient is added to household cleaning products because it is a grease cutter. Moreover, it leaves a streak-free finish, making it a common component of glass and stainless steel cleaning products. It should be avoided because it is highly irritating to the lungs and respiratory passages. It can burn the skin on contact.

Bleach (sodium hypochlorite)

This whitening-agent is a lung irritant and can burn eyes and skin. It has been linked to breast cancer, reproductive problems and learning and behavioral problems in children.

When chlorine bleach combines with organic compounds in waterways, it can form harmful byproducts that are linked to cancer.

1,4 Dioxane

Unlike other ingredients, this carcinogenic contaminant does not appear on ingredient labels because it is an unintended byproduct during the manufacturing process. In a test of household and personal care products commissioned by the U.S.-based Organic Consumers Association (OCA) in the years 2007, 2008 and 2009, some products of known 'green' brands surprisingly contained 1,4 dioxane.

To avoid possible exposure to 1,4 dioxane, it is best to avoid products with the following ingredients: PEG (polyethylene glycol), polyethylene, polyoxyethylene, sodium lauryl ether sulphate/sodium laureth sulfate (SLES) and alcohol ethoxylates. In general, avoid ingredient names with "-eth-" and "-oxynol-. "

There are ecolabels which certify that certain harmful ingredients, like the ones on this list, are not present in your cleaning products. Watch out for Sunbeam's April Newsletter to learn more about what ecolabels to look for when shopping, as well as, what simple ingredients and cleaning products you can make at home to avoid introducing toxins into your home.

Illumination! http://www.sunbeams.eu/index.php/information/our-articles/item/48-illumination http://www.sunbeams.eu/index.php/information/our-articles/item/48-illumination

illuminationDecember, dark mornings, early evenings, winter weather, holidays – It is the season of illumination! Whether an evening at home or inviting family and friends to a festive party – illumination brings atmosphere, comfort, and essential lighting. Illumination via electrical sources also brings increased cost to your pocket and the environment. Can you still light your home festively and be kinder to your pocket and your planet? Absolutely! A few tricks and changes and you're on your way.

Deck your halls, trees, and shrubs with Light Emitting Diode fairy lights or other LED seasonal string lights and place them on switches at power points that can be turned off when not in use.

Why make the switch to LED? Contemporary LED lights are warmer in lumenescence than their predecessors and come in a wide array of holiday colors, shapes, and sizes. LEDs operate by electron movement in a semiconductor material and should a bulb stop working it does not impact the remainder of the string. In comparison, incandescent bulbs use a filament that can burn out and in turn shuts off the remainder of the string of lights. LEDs consume about 1/10th the energy of traditional incadescent lights resulting in lower electrical costs. LED bulbs are plastic, more durable,and are cool to the touch as a result of less heat production. Less heat from the bulbs means less risk of fire to your tree and home. The lifespan of an LED light string is 40-50 times longer than incandescent strings and they are mercury free. Mini LED's produce a brighter light than large LEDs or incandescents creating more sparkle and twinkle for your ambiance. Admitedly the initial cost of a string of LEDs is more expensive than incandescent, but the energy savings, the longevity, and the limited impact upon the environment makes them a winning choice. For more information on LED lighting go to www.ciphersbyritter.com or to www.lightbulbsdirect.com.

Grace your tables, entry way, or drive with candles or solar lights. Although, candle lumens are lower than electrical lighting with a bit of smoke and mirrors you can transform a single point of light into many. Use cut glass bowls or dishes and cut glass candles holders to refract light for sparkle and to expand the number of points of light. Mirrors under or behind candles add reflective light. Visit second-hand markets or shops for inexpensive silver trays, or dishes to place your candles on, again to create a relective, sparkling effect that increases your candle's lumenescence, creates beauty, and brings comfort. Or combine cut glass with a reflective surface and multiple your lighting power many times over. (Remember to use an environmentally safe method for polishing your silver. See: http://www.doityourself.com/stry/silver, or http://www.essortment.com/all/howtocleanpol_rkvl.htm) To find second hand cut glass or silver in Brussels visit aantiques and second-hand shops around, on Rue Haute, Rue Blase and Sablon Square or the flea market in the Marolle district – Place du Jeu de Balle. In other areas of Belgium use can visit TROC shops for your finds, see their website for locations: http://www.troc.com/fr/.

Candles add a soft glow that warms a room, bring calm and peace during the busy and hectic season. They evoke symbolism and stir emotions. Candles come in a wide variety of wax types including paraffin, beeswax, soya, palm, bayberry and beeswax sheets, not all of which can be found in Belgium. Try to choose beeswax or vegetal-based candles (like soya) and reduce or eliminate your use of paraffin (a petro chemical by-product) wax candles or gel candles. Non-renewable sourced, paraffin-based and gel-based candles (gel is derived from processed petrochemical mineral oils gelled with plastic polymers, poured into glass containers) burn hotter then vegetal-based (soya) or beeswax candles which have a lower melting point and burn slower, longer, and nearly soot free. There is less potential for serious burns should hot wax be touched and less toxin by-products released. Burning paraffin-based candles is also noted as being as dangerous to your lungs as sitting in second hand smoke. Beeswax candles, which are usually drip-free, provide a pleasant fragrance that is toxin-free versus those scented with artificial fragrance oils which may contribute to asthma and allergy symptoms in those people who are sensetive to these conditions. If you are looking for fragrance, warm essential oils in a specially made dish in a stand over a tealight. Beeswax candles can be found in specialty shops and whole food shops in Belgium. Finding soya-based candles in Belgian shops requires an eagle eye and are more easily purchased in the Netherlands, Germany, or online (http://www.pingliving.eu).

Remember to always use caution with candles and never leave a room with burning candles left unattended. For safety tips please refer to: http://www.candles.org/safety_candles.html.

Solar lights, after your initial investment are the most cost effective lighting. Lights can not only be used during the holidays but year round, amatorizing your costs over a greater period of time. Solar powered holiday decorations can be found online or in shops like Nature et Decouvertes (Woluwe Shopping Centre and City2).

Sunbeams wishes you health and happiness this December as you take a positive focus on small steps towards big changes for illuminating your holiday environment!

What to Do with Your Household Waste in Belgium http://www.sunbeams.eu/index.php/information/our-articles/item/22-what-to-do-with-your-household-waste-in-belgium http://www.sunbeams.eu/index.php/information/our-articles/item/22-what-to-do-with-your-household-waste-in-belgium

Photo by suzienewshoes on flickr!In Belgium, each region and even each commune has a different system of sorting waste. To find out how what goes into which bag in your commune you can check www.fostplus.be. Everything which does not go into the usual white (general waste), blue (PMD - Plastic bottles and flasks, Metal packaging and Drinks), green (garden waste) and yellow (paper) bags or glass containers in your neighbourhood needs to be dropped elsewhere and it might sometimes be difficult to find out where.

To start with, each commune has a “container park” and the exact location, opening hours and rules of what can and cannot be brought there are to be found on the above mentioned website.

Chemical waste - like batteries, frying oil, left-over from toxic products e.g. ammoniac, ink, paint, fertilizers, thermometers, saving light bulbs, etc - can be brought to container parks. In Brussels they also can be dropped at “mobile green spots” (Coins Verts Mobiles/Mobiele Groene Plekjes). The hours and locations of these collection points change every month and the complete list can be found at your commune or on www.bruxelles-proprete.be/www.netbrussel.be or you can call 0800/981.81.

For electrical and IT waste check our dedicated article on e-waste.

For empty or used batteries, ink cartridges and even Brita water filters keep an eye open for collection points at various places like supermarkets, shops and community centers or communes.

All expired medication, half empty pills packages or medicine bottles can be brought back to your pharmacy.

Avoid creating the waste in the frst place

  1. Compost your kitchen and garden waste.
  2. Buy bulk or refillable packaging and take your own shopping bags or trolleys with you.
  3. Avoid food spillage and plan your shopping well, e.g. by using a weekly meal plan.
  4. Reduce advertisement in your mailbox.
  5. Think about buying second hand or try freecycling.
  6. Lots of waste can be avoided by choosing glass bottles (or Tetrapaks). And why not change to tap water and get a drinking bottle for all family members?
  7. Reduce paper in your house and life: print on both sides, ditch paper phone books...
  8. Have you though of renting or sharing things, like books, toys, machines?
  9. Why not avoid diapers and join the cloth nappy group of the Brussels Childbirth Trust?
  10. Avoid toxic waste: try to buy green appliances, cleaning, washing and garden products.
  11. Avoid things which need batteries or else, buy rechargeable batteries.
  12. Go for the sustainable stuff (long lasting, reusable and recyclable).
