Environmental Concerns

Baking soda is generally regarded as being safe however there are a few concerns regarding its effect on animals and ecosystems. It is generally accepted that in has no adverse effects on an ecosystem in small amounts but if large quantities enter an ecosystem it could damage the reproductive system of some species.

When manufacturing baking soda some green house gases such as CO2 are released into the are this is obviously not good for the environment and is of course a contributing factor to global climate change. All manufacturers must abide by there local, provincial and federal mandates dictating acceptable amounts of green house gas emission.

Companies using large quantities of baking soda must adhere to the safe disposal laws in place to insure that there is a minimal effect on the environment.
