Hosting an enchanting and fun-filled Fireworks night does not have to come at the expense of safety or the environment.
DOW Group UK encourages everyone to follow simple steps to achieve an eco-friendly and secure event.
We’d always recommend you attend an organised public fireworks display. It’s safer and better for the environment.
If you wish to have a display at home, here are some tips:
- Choosing fireworks marked as low noise indicates a lower content of heavy metals used for their loud bangs, thus causing less pollution.
- Buying fireworks from reliable sources ensures they are produced under strict environmental and safety standards.
- Always read instructions to correctly light fireworks and keep a safe distance.
- Dispose of fireworks responsibly by soaking them in water overnight before disposing them in household waste, thereby minimising the risk of fires or soil pollution.
