The article announces the participation of Sears Home Services in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's voluntary Responsible Appliance Disposal Program. The annual greenhouse gas emissions savings resulting from Sears' efforts will be equivalent to preventing the emissions from hundreds of cars. Through the program, the refrigerants and appliance insulating foam that contain chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) are captured and destroyed or recycled.
