Soaps – the good, the bad, and the ugly

Like many people, I always believed that using "anti-bacterial" soaps were necessary. However, recent scientific studies have shown that soaps containing such "anti-bacterial" chemicals as triclosan, do not help reduce bacteria. In fact, they are harmful to you and the environment. In the United States, the FDA has ordered companies that use these chemicals to stop using them.

Recycling vs. Reusing

Recycling is good because it avoids creating new products from raw materials. However, it is even better to reuse items like glass jars because it still requires a lot of energy to take an old glass container and convert it into a new product. In order for a product like glass to be recycled, it must be rinsed and it must not break when it is in transit; if the glass breaks, most of it goes to the landfill.
