When you think of Tide’s Free and Gentle® laundry detergent, don’t you immediately think it is safe for babies and young children? That’s exactly what Proctor & Gamble wants you to think. But they forgot to tell us that 1,4-dioxane, a probable cancer causing chemical is in the product. Green Gal Next Door, Lori Alper, editor of Groovy Green Livin’ was so angry, she started a petition to demand that P&G remove this chemical from the detergent.
And guess what? With the support of Momrising, Women’s Voices for the Earth, and Healthy Child Healthy World, it pissed off 72,000 other people too. Listen to her in the above video or podcast as she explains the problem.
