An Emergency Zone Brand puncture resistant reflective blanket is a must for every emergency kit. This solar blanket reflects 80% of your body heat, conserving heat in an emergency situation. In addition, this blanket is 71 x 142 inches (most blankets are 52 x 84 inches). That's over twice the size of other reflective blankets, allowing 2 or even 3 people to share body heat. Survival experts recommend shared body heat to prevent hypothermia, but other blankets are just too small to wrap around more than one person. A single oversized reflective blanket is superior to two standard ones.

The Good and the Bad
Negative ions are good for us. You might want to avoid positive ion generators and ozone generators. Whenever I need a new air cleaner (with negative ion generator), I buy it from surroundair.com. A plain old air cleaner is better than nothing, but one that produces negative ions makes the air in a room fresher and easier to breathe. It also helps to brighten my mood.
Never litter. If you can't find a trash can, take it home and throw it away there.
