Easy to be Eco-Chic: Switch just one bottle of laundry detergent!

May 17, 2011
Seventh Generation just posted this quick fact on my Facebook Feed and even I was surprised!  
"If every household in the US replaced just one bottle of 150 oz. 2X concentrate petroleum-based laundry liquid with our 150 oz. 2X concentrate plant-derived product, we could save 20 million gallons of oil, the equivalent to removing 34,000 cars from the road for one year."
  WHAT?! Crazy. And worth the effort - especially if you can find Seventh Generation Products on sale. 

Note: I'm sure this goes for any plant-based laundry detergent! I have used Seventh Generation, Method, and Martha Stewart Clean products with success and love for the earth!
