When it comes to detergents, what’s the least irresponsible choice?

Looking for some new ways to green your home? 

Starting this week, the New York Times will be publishing a weekly column called “The Green Home,” which will focus on different techniques to make your home more green. This week, the focus is on environmentally friendly laundry and dish washer detergents.  The article features an interview with an EPA engineer who is responsible for awarding the “Design for the Environment” logo to products.  Specifically for detergents, those that receive the EPA’s seal of approval have ingredients that are less harmful for the environment. 

It will definitely be interesting to see what other products are featured in this new column, which draws more attention to the need to green your own home and personally help in the fight against climate change and with cleaning the environment.
