About Our Environment EARTH TALK From the Editors of E/The Environmental Magazine Dear EarthTalk: Are there environmentally friendly car waxes, washes and bug removers? --Graham Berg, Portland, Oregon ,e ' Conventional car waxes, ,bug removers and other auto detailing formulas are good at :i their jobs because they contain ' strong chemicals. Unfortunately :: these synthetic substances-- :, including glycol monobutyl ether, -, a registered pesticide, and the petroleum derivatives naptha ,and cosmoline--can irritate i: skin, cause other more serious ;health. problems, and get into "!:our groundwater once they are ;;;rinsed away. Luckily consumers have many alternatives to choose from. A handful of forward-thinking companies have risen to the challenge of developing Car care products that won't harm our bodies or the environment. Many car wax manufacturers have discovered that wax naturally- extracted from the Carnauba palm of Brazil does a great job of protecting auto paint and clear coat from bird poop, dead bugs and other nasties. Optimum Car ' Wax, for example, can protect '. your car's finish without abrasive chemicals and instead combines Carnauba wax with lanolins (obtained from sheep's wool) like those found in gentle hand lotions. For washing your vehicle, ' Simple Green Car Wash Cleaner handles automotive dirt, grime, grease, bug stains and everything in-between without polluting. The concentrated formula contains none of the toxic volatile organic compounds (VOCs) found in most such cleaners. It can be used safely to clean paint, clear coat, windows, chrome, rubber, .canvas and vinyl. Another environmentally sensitive way to clean off Caked-on bug guts and other gooey debris without resorting to noxious chemicals is by dissolving baking soda in warm water, then gently rubbing the mixture into the car with a soft cloth. Detailer's Pride Gel Wheel Cleaner, available online atI driveit.com, among other I retailers, is an environmentally sensitive choice for removing caked on brake dust on wheels and grime off trunk lids and engine compartments. It also gets stains off of vinyl and convertible tops, cleans greasy door jams, and is ideal for loosening and removing bug and white wax residues. It is water based, and contains no harmful solvents or chemicals. For keeping your vehicle's movirig parts at Optimal performance, Balchip Corporation, based in Toronto, Ontario offers a wide range of environmentally friendly engine treatments and fuel additives that serve to dissolve corrosive build-ups and keep parts working together smoothly. Based on the pioneering research of Canadian biochemist Paul Deogrades, all Balchip products are derived from plants and trees and as such are completely biodegradable and non-toxic.

Major Technological Breakthrough Found in an email Introducing the new Bio-Optic Organized Knowledge device, trade-named BOOK. BOOK is a revolutionary breakthrough in technology: no wires, no electric circuits, no batteries, nothing to be connected or switched on. It's so easy to use even a child can operate it. Compact and portable, it can be used anywhere--even sitting in an .armchair by the fire--yet it is powerful enough to hold as much information as a CD-ROM disc. Here's how it works: BOOK is constructed of sequentially numbered sheets of paper (recyclable) each capable of holding thousands of bits of information. The pages are locked together with a custom-fit device called a binding that keeps the sheets in their correct sequence. Opaque Paper Technology (OPT) allows manufacturers to use both sides of the sheet, doubling the information density and cutting costs. Experts are divided on the prospects for further increases in information density; for now, BOOKS with more information simply use more pages. Each sheet is scanned optically, registering information directly into your brain. A flick of the finger takes you to the next sheet. BOOK may be taken up at any time and used merely by opening it. BOOK never crashes or requires rebooting, though like other display devices it can become unusable if dropped overboard. The "browse" feature allows you to move instantly to any sheet, and move forward or backward as you wish. Many come with an "index" feature, which pinpoints thp exact location of any selected information for instant retrieval. An optional BOOK mark accessory allows you to open BOOK to the exact place you left it in a previous session, even if the BOOK has been closed. BOOKmark fits a universal design standard; thus a single one can be used in BOOKS by various manufacturers. Conversely, numerous BOOKmarkers can be used in a single BOOK, if the user wants to store numerous views at once. The number is limited only by the number of pages in the book. You can also make personal notes next to BOOK text entries with an optional programming tool, the Portable Erasable Nib Cryptic Intercommunication LangUage stylus (PENCIL.). Portable, durable, and affordable, BOOK is being hailed as a precursor of a new entertainment wave. Also, BOOK's appeal seems so certain that thousands of content creators have committed to the platform and investors are reportedly flocking, Look for a flood of new titles soon.
