More environmental friendly way to melt ice and snow on roads

We all know that Wisconsin is known for it's cheese, producing more cheese than any other state — in fact, 2.7 billion pounds were produced last year! But besides consumption, what are mid-westerners doing with all that cheese? Well, for one, Wisconsin is taking cheese to a whole new level by using it to melt their icy roads!

Yes you read that correctly — in an effort to find cheaper and more environmentally friendly ways to thaw ice, America's Dairyland has turned to cheese.

Winter weather takes a toll on Wisconsin every year and keeping roads and sidewalks clear of snow and ice can not only be a daunting task, but it's expensive. So as a solution, areas of Wisconsin have started using cheese brine to de-ice roads.

The benefits are two fold as there are not only benefits to municipalities, but to the cheese-makers themselves.
