Today's pin I recently posted to Pinterest is a DIY for Bell Send Off Wands which are a great alternative to sparklers! According to The Green Bride Guide sparklers are fun (also can be very dangerous) but they are made from mined metals (such as iron, aliminum, barium, copper, and strontium) see more info below. I made ribbon wands in the Button Themed Shoot and they are really fun since you can match them to your wedding color scheme, but adding bells makes the experience so much MORE FUN!!
Environmental issues can include erosion, formation of sinkholes, loss of biodiversity, and contamination of soil, groundwater and surface water by chemicals from mining processes. In some cases, additional forest logging is done in the vicinity of mines to increase the available room for the storage of the created debris and soil. Contamination resulting from leakage of chemicals can also affect the health of the local population if not properly controlled. Extreme examples of pollution from mining activities include coal fires, which can last for years or even decades, producing massive amounts of environmental damage. Mining companies in most countries are required to follow stringent environmental and rehabilitation codes in order to minimize environmental impact and avoid impacts on human health.
