Eco-Friendly De-Icers

Looks like we can’t put the shovels away just yet, but hopefully this is the last snowfall of the season. Before you throw rock salt on your driveway and sidewalk though, you might want to consider a de-icer that won’t harm your animals, lawn and plants. Rock salt is also known to cause erosion damage to concrete. Some of the more popular eco-friendly options include sand and cat litter. There are a variety of pet-friendly, chloride-free safe ice melters available also.  If you are fortunate enough to have a heated driveway this may not be a concern, if not, you should try one of these alternatives. Your plants and animals will thank you.
