#GoodNewsTuesday: Beet Juice De-ices better than Salt! Cool!

Hello out there, how are you? I hope life is treating you well and if not my thoughts and prayers are with you. You will rise to the challenge and master it. I believe in you.

Is it snowy where you are? It doesn’t often snow where I am living but one good news story on the Good News Network made me say “WOW”. Apparently scientists figured a way of using chemicals derived from sugar beet and grape skins and even other vegetables and fruit to develop a de-icer for roads that are a lot better for the environment.

What really surprised me was that the videos I found about this story on YouTube are from around 2013. That is so cool. Here in the UK every year we are shown the mountains of salt that is used to de-ice roads and public spaces so it doesn’t look to me like they are up to date with their environmental credentials. Shame.

To find out more about this great way to de-ice road read this story on the Good News Networks: “Rather than polluting icy roadsides with salt, scientists use recycled bio waste from fruit

You can also find out more about it with the video from The Globe and Mail in Canada. Please follow the link underneath the video to it’s YouTube location if it doesn’t play here on the blog.
