RAD stands for Responsible Appliance Disposal. If refrigerant chemicals (HFC's) escape from freezers, heat pumps, refrigerators, or air-conditioners the atmospheric damage is much worse than most people realize.
"The HFCs in [air conditioner] units just amplify the problem...these emissions [may] increase to 7-19 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions by 2050."
How much do you pollute?
When it's time to replace your refrigerator, heat-pump, air conditioner, or freezer, do not dump the thing! The RAD people make it easy to do it right. To find a RAD program near you: find-rad-partner
"Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) found in refrigerators and air conditioners are...a major contributor to climate change."
Unfortunately, in Guatemala, they don't have such an expansive RAD program like we have here in the States:
"Sometimes...the team [there] arrives too late, finding only punctured tanks, corroded pipes and gases long [since] released."
