Washing dishes

As I stood there washing one solitary spoon with as little dishwashing soap as possible, my thoughts turned to chemicals.  So as I decided to wash the silverware I use at work at home, I thought I would pass on a couple of articles on chemicals. Sounds like fun huh?

First up, these two from the Environment News Service entitled “Toxic Chemical Releases Down Overall, Mercury and PCBs Up” and “Flame Retardant Chemicals Taint All U.S. Coastal Waters“.

Lets follow that up with a couple of old friends from the world of toxics, say hello to DDT  and PCB in “Plastic Resin Pellets: Your New Source of DDT and PCB” by Greenz.jp at Treehugger. Where’s Rachel Carson when you need her (again).
