Have you ever wondered how products stay on the grocery store shelf for so long? There is a specific way companies make sure they last so long.
Have you ever wondered how the size of the packaging impacts the amount of the product you use? There is a specific reason for that as well.
On today's episode, I talk about how marketing and competition drive the quality of the products and the potential impact they have on the environment and human health.

Nutrients are playing a huge role in disrupting our coastal ecological stability. We have blue-green algal blooms that are so think it smells like dead people. We also have red tides that kill everything in its path for short (lately longer) periods of time. These algal blooms are popping up all over the world causing heaps of trouble. Unfortunately for Florida, the two types of algal blooms mentioned here are present at the same time and they are reeking havoc along the Southwest coast.
Nutrients that fuel the algal blooms come from the coastline. The nutrients are derived from industries and sewage treatment plants. You and I contribute nutrients to our sewage treatment plants; therefore, it would be good if we could reduce our nutrient input through more eco-friendly products.
I talk about some of those products in hops that you will go out and try some.
Here is a link to some available Laundry Detergent products from this Amazon search.
