Hello, my name is Vanessa. I would like to welcome you to my site about the environment. Growing up, I lived along a beautiful river full of jumping fish. The birds flew overhead, ready to catch their next meal in their talons. I watched as the wildlife lived in relative harmony along the riverbed. Unfortunately, as I reached my adult year, the river’s water quality and wildlife populations started to decline. Pollution was cited as the cause, which broke my heart. I will use this site to explore the way societies are damaging the world around them and propose solutions to solve this problem. Thanks.

Lead, in its most controversial state, is toxic to humans. However, many lead products are still vital to much of what you use and do everyday. For example, the battery in your car has lead plates in it, and lead may be the only viable option for different types of construction equipment or supplies.
