product may stay: mrs. meyer's clean day

You know how I'm a big fan of not pooping where I eat, right? Like, however you feel about the human species' culpability regarding MASSIVE GLOBAL RUINATION OH THE HORROR, it behooves all of us to take care of the space we're in, because dead zones in the ocean and people's eyeballs turning pink from food coloring are gross things.

For that reason, I try to buy cleaning products that are biodegradable and plant-derived. I've tried a few things from the Mrs. Meyer's line; the shower cleaner, laundry soap, dish soap and hand soap. I've liked all of them, and they all smell wonderful. They clean as well as anything else I've used, and they don't create six-eyed fish. (At least I assume--I think every biology class has at least one preserved cyclopean fetal lamb whose mother ate False Hellebore. Plant-derived doesn't always mean safe, hemlock.)

I am hesitant to tell you this next part, because I'm selfish. I buy my Mrs. Meyer's stuff at Ross or TJ Maxx, because it's half price. Now you'll all probably run out and buy it all before I can get there, but I guess you'll have to decide whether that's ethical or not. I just think it would be a pity to exchange your water polluting for sneakery.

Product may stay.
