Better for environment--glue or tape
Name: Buttefield School
Butterfield School would like to know which is better for the environment-
glue or tape - to put school projects together?
I am no expert on the process of manufacturing either of these products, but I
would guess that Elmer's Glue-All or a similar white glue would be less
harmful because (1) it dissolves in water, and (2) it is certifiably non-toxic
as defined in the Federal Hazardous Substances Act. You should write to the
companies that make the products for complete information about what they are
made of and how safe they are, and then decide for yourselves.
