What Your Cleaners Do to Local Water


If you forget about the cleaners you use the moment they go down the drain, here's a little reminder.

The above picture was taken of a local creek in the woods near our house. This is a protected forest that is quite beautiful with lovely walking trails. There are some houses located above this creek.

I know the picture isn't very clear. My phone doesn't take very good pictures.
I was looking forward to relaxing by the creek, but was so disheartened when I arrived and saw this.

It is hard to see in this picture, but if you look to right between the large and small rock, there is a triangular white patch that looks like snow. That isn't snow - it's detergent foam.
And to the left what looks like white water of little rapids is actually bubbles.

My poor dog was so thirsty from our walk and I was going to let her drink from the creek, but not after what I saw. I knew it would make her sick.

This is what happens when people use toxic cleaners. The chemicals don't go to some faraway magical place where they mysteriously disappear, they end up in the local water faster than you think. 

This is also could be from people washing their cars with dish soap, which is very toxic or from treating their lawns with pesticides and herbicides.

This creek is one of countless others that run into the river, which just happens to be the water source for most of the homes in the area. 

Yes, it goes through a treatment facility, but it would be naive to think that you can "treat" all the chemicals out of the water. They have to go somewhere.

That is why I can't emphasize enough how important it is to switch to truly biodegradable cleaners like Shaklee's. We must protect our environment for us and our children. We truly do live in a giant fishbowl. All the water we will ever have is right here, right now. We can't make more. That is why it is so important to not pollute the water we have!

Remember, the flush is closer to the tap than you might think.
