Dishwashing Liquid Not So Clean

Probably like many consumers, I feel that I should be able to trust the labels on the products that I purchase. However, as more and more research is done, it is becoming blatantly apparent that the companies of today have decided that they will sell their products to whoever, wherever, and at whatever cost to our planet and society. Long gone are the days where we as consumers knew what the terms we are faced with on product labels mean, or what the company behind those labels really stands for. While surfing the internet for some useful information on dishwashing liquid, I ran across an article written by Vanessa L. Facenda at Brandweek (http://www.brandweek.com/bw/news/recent_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1003726559) regarding the dishwashing liquids that we have to choose from when it comes to taking care of the environment. These cleaning items state to be environmentally friendly and "green". However, upon a deeper look, it appears that the statements are nothing more than a blatant lie. In many cases, the manufacturers of these products are even facing threats of a lawsuit if they do not change the labels on their products and start disclosing the actual make-up of their cleaning products. As consumers, it is our duty and responsibility to make sure that we are aware of the products that we are buying and not believe everything that we are told regarding the items that we bring into our homes. The largest voice that we have is when we choose to buy, or not buy, a product. In choosing to give one company our hard earned money over another, we have the power to invoke change in the market place and show the large corporations what truly matters to us.
