I made a trip to Wal-Mart the other day and found a few green products worth blogging about. First was the dish detergent. I was out of our traditional Electrosol powdered detergent and had planned on picking up the same product. However, when I saw a liquid dish detergent by Palmolive called Eco I knew I had to try it. To my surprise it was a few dollars cheaper too. So I tried my first load last night and guess what…it worked great! I didn’t notice any difference from my old Electrosol. So I guess I’ve found my new product. It’s phosphate free so it won’t extra nutrients into the water system.
The next item was a total surprise, especially at Wal-Mart. They had a display of environmental themed t-shirts. Not only do they have a good message on them; they are also made from organic cotton. How cool is that? And for a total of $6 it couldn’t have been a better deal! I picked up one that said, “Green is the new black!” for myself. This adds to my new eco-tee collection. My girlfriend bought me a cute tee for my birthday that said, “Hug a Tree” that she found at JC Penney’s. It was also made of organic cotton.
