Jan 22nd – Wash your dishes with an eco-friendly detergent.

I just discovered Planet Ultra Dishwashing Liquid, and Seventh Generation Automatic Dishwasher Powder, Free and Clear for the dishwasher, but there are a number of good ones on the market.  Also consider using 1/2 the amount you typically use, or dilute the solution to lessen amounts going in our water system.

There is a great resource from the EPA called Design for the Environment where you can check out products that perform well, are cost-effective and safer for the environment.  Go to:  http://www.epa.gov/dfe/

I also mentioned previously that you can check ewg.org, here is their list of the best ones:  http://www.ewg.org/guides/categories/5-Dishwashing?grade=a

You can purchase the above items at Soap.com and/or you can get most things at Whole Foods.

On a separate note, I apologize for any confusion on yesterday’s ‘change’ and my misspelling… hopefully you all meditated and didn’t get into any crazy mediating… we’ll save that for another day ;).
