Salt shortage in the Netherlands; To combat the shortage, some cities are using sand, which doesn't work as well and is not good for the roads, one town has gotten a little more creative, Etten-Leur has spread 18 tons of scented bath salts on its roads,..

It may smell sweet but at what cost and damage to the enviroment ,we will all pay the price for too much salt on our roads this winter,I have been using sand to give grip underfoot and when the snow goes I sweep it up and use it again when the snow returns.It has worked great in fact several of my neigbours have followed and say it is working well for them too.

Sonsydee your's is a very green & excellant alternative.Depending on where salt is used we need to think of the run off into nearby streams as well.
