Flushing expired medications down the toilet is bad for the environment. Find out why and how to dispose of them safely. (Seein' Green, KSER Everett)

Oil is dripping into our oceans and having a negative effect on the food we eat. And it's not just from oil tankers. (Green Acre Radio, KBCS Bellevue/Seattle)
