Take the 1:5:10:365 challenge: Do one thing – for 5 to 10 minutes – 365 days a year to make our home and planet environment better.

1:5:10:327 EcoTip: Lead is a heavy metal that has been used for plumbing pipes in municipal water systems. It is supposed to be phased out but can still contaminate drinking water.
