Alternatives to Fireworks
No doubt you’ve already seen or heard fireworks demonstrations in your neighborhood. While the booming lights are beautiful, they can come with a cost – and we’re not talking about money.
According to Discovery News, scientists are working on developing more eco-friendly fireworks that produce less smoke and fewer toxic metals that may end up in soil and groundwater. Even the people at Disneyland wanted to look into this, as its neighbors started to complain about the massive smoke from the park’s spectacular displays.
In the meantime, try exploring some alternatives to fireworks this year. The teams at The Daily Green and Yahoo have some fun ideas (especially for kids) – from throwing confetti to hosting a light show in your living room! Ever hear of a liquid chalk gun? We hadn’t either, but it sounds messy and so much fun!
What are your ideas?
