They don’t use lead or ash and the use of nitrates as oxidizers further decrease the release of pollutants into the air. These days, celebrations only emit carbon dioxide and nitrogen. This causes water and air pollution. Eco-friendly fireworks are just as much fun, create much less smoke, and make more noticeable colors. Can not overlook the disparity. In addition, produced crackers thus produce brighter and deeper colors of blues and reds which are not possible with traditional pyrotechnics. Who’d have thought?
