One quick way is to use Seventh Generation Laudry products. This product is made out of vegatables not petroleum. This is one quick way to reduce out oil dependency. Goto http://www.seventhgeneration.com/ for more details. If every household in the U.S. replaced just one bottle of 150 oz. ultra petroleum-based liquid laundry detergent with our 150 oz. vegetable based product, we could save 298,000 barrels of oil, enough to heat and cool 17,100 U.S. homes for a year!

Another product that will help reduce out dependecy on Oil is Seventh Generation Lawn bags. This plastic lawn bags are made from 100% recycled plastics. If every household in the U.S. replaced just one package of 20 count trash bags made from virgin plastic with 100% recycled ones, we could save:

* 101,500 barrels of oil, enough to heat and cool 5,800 U.S. homes for a year
* 1.8 million cubic feet of landfill space, equal to 2,700 full garbage trucks
* and avoid 37,800 tons of pollution!


On Seventh Genaration website, you can locate a store that sells these products. If there are no stores in your area, amazon.com sells these products. I have been using all seventh generation products for over a year and the lawn bags are awesome. They are dont rip easy and are well made. I also have been using the laudry liquid soap and can not tell a difference from regular laudry soap. Also have been using Recycled Tolit paper and it is awesome.
