Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet environment.

1:5:10:252 EcoTip: Homes built before 1980 may have lead in paint. The older the home the more likely the presence of lead. The greatest risk is when the lead is released by deterioration, scraping and sanding and is most dangerous for children. Based on personal experience lead poisoning is no fun for adults either. 1:5:10:365 Ecotip :033 discussed lead in toys and do-it-yourself test kits.
