Question: Do you feel that freon should be banned? Are you going to discontinue using it?
"Yes. it should be banned.it seems like there is a good chance that what they have said is right ... I like roll-ons deodorants anyway.
- Janet Ison. Engineering student
"I am not sure if freon should be banned or not, it seems like it is a threat. I only use spray cans for art work, but if I could find a substitute for it. I would use that. I have stopped using spray deodorants."
-Don Fishel. Assistant Director of " the Word of God Music"
"Definitely yes! I have stopped using most spray cans already. I have been reading about how awful they are."
- Jay Pinsky. high school teacher
"I really do not understand the whole concept, but if it is destroying the ozone. it should be banned. If it is, I will discontinue using it."
-Paula Diggs, student
"I have heard about it and I think it should be banned, but I don't think it will be. l'm going to continue using it, the only way I would stop would be if they quit producing it."
-Keith Warner, student
"Yes, freon should be banned. It is a hazard, and we cannot afford to gamble. I have already discontinued using it, I stopped when I first heard it might have something to do with destroying the ozone."
