I've always assumed that harsh chemicals are removed from water when it leaves my home and travels to a treatment facility. If water is treated, why is it important to use natural and organic detergents? Thank you.
-A Phillips
Dear A. Phillips,
Some of the most detrimental environmental effects arising from detergent use are associated with the persistence of detergent ingredients in treated wastewater. There are many chemicals that are not completely removed through the typical wastewater treatment processes. Zeolite builders, plant nutrients like nitrates and phosphates, some antimicrobial agents, chlorinated hydrocarbons, non-biodegradable surfactants, and wastewater treatment byproducts, to name a few, are found in treated laundry wastewater which is then reintroduced into the environment and can be toxic to aquatic life, damage the environment, and adversely affect human health.

For this reason, it is important to use natural detergents that are non-toxic and biodegradable. In addition to persisting in treated wastewater, using responsibly sourced natural detergent products reduces the rate of depletion of natural resources. More Questions
