On top of cleaning being not the most fun
activity in the world,
it’s also an environmental minefield.
The average American household contains 62
toxic chemicals.
The words biodegradable, natural, and green:
totally unregulated!
You can just stick it on anything.
How are we supposed to make good choices?
We’re gonna give you one thing to start with.
(And you’re gonna have to read your labels).
We’re looking for phosphates.
True: phosphorous supports the growth of algae
and aquatic life.
But too much if it causes this stuff to grow
faster than the ecosystem can handle.
So look for phosphates on your label and opt
for something else.
