  •  This diary is kind of sad but important.. (7+ / 0-)

    I guess there are animal misfits just like people..

    This is a new series started by Meteor Blades and PDNC?

    This series will be a big success not just because of the subject but because there are so many people writing..then nobody gets burned out.

    I can't believe this but Ive eaten no meat besides fish and a little sausage for over a month now.

    I also began buying the enviornmentally friendly cleaners. I found it doesn't cost more if you know where to go..even if it did not that much more and there's big cost to cleaning up lakes/rivers..

        and is taken from wikipedia

        The CO2 emissions from a liquid laundry detergent used to wash an average load of laundry is about 0.7 kilograms (1.5 lb).

        Detergents also contain phosphate additives. "Barry Commoner ... noted that between 1940 and 1970 the amount of phosphates in city wastewater increased from 20,000 to 150,000 tons per year." [4] With the increase in phosphates, algal blooms grew splendidly on the excess phosphorus and consumed most of the oxygen in the waters, killing fish and plants

        That is why I changed to enviornmental friendly cleaning for laundry, dishwasher, bathroom and kitchen cleaners.
