Earth Update: Laundry

Laundry is something that you have to do all the time so why not make it green?  Normal laundry detergent is made through a very energy-intense process. How intense? Umm let's just say that about one POUND of greenhouse gasses are produced for every little ounce of detergent!! Greenhouse gasses hugely contribute to global warming. Two brands called Method and Mrs. Meyer's make detergent that is much more friendly to the earth.  If you can't find those, just look for petroleum and phthalate free detergents.

Until later have an "earthy" day!!
