The American Soapbox is a humorous commentary on American society and culture. The first non-fiction work by horror/suspense novelist Billie Dean Shoemate III, this is a no-holds-barred, all-gloves-off take on American life. Brutally honest, hilariously open and even touching at times, The American Soapbox is not a book for the narrow-minded. This isn't literature. This isn't art. This is personal.
Environmental Noise Barriers is a unique one-stop reference for practitioners, whether acoustical engineers, landscape architects or manufacturers, and for highways departments in local and central authorities. This extensively revised new edition is updated in line with UK and EU legislation and international provision of barriers.
Traditional household cleaners play a huge factor in this pollution. Synthetic household products contain harmful chemicals that react with ozone from the air, creating toxins like formaldehyde. As an individual you have the power to control most of your choices and, therefore, the impact you create on the environment. Embracing a greener lifestyle isn't just about helping to preserve equatorial rain forests, it can also mean improving your health, padding your bank account, and, ultimately, improving your overall quality of life. For instance, Americans do a lot of laundry - about eight loads a week on average, using store-bought detergent adds up. If you'd rather save money, try making your own detergent - it's a fun, easy project, and your laundry will cost only pennies per load. So to sum up... non-toxic cleaners are perfectly safe around children, keep the air you breathe clean, are much, much cheaper and they don't harm the environment.
