Detergents: Whiter Than White Somewhere on Madison Ave- nue, advertising agent In laughing. He hae come as close JK any man ever has to disprov- ing the old saying about not being to "fool all of the people all of the time." He has fooled a lot of us into that oar cWhes must be whiter-tnan-white and Drisli.er-than-bright. Being clean isn't enough any more: If a white shirt doesn't practic- ally glow in the dark, then we're tbe wrong laundry deter- gent Phosphates are the cbeml- cafe uaed in laundry aoapf detergents in order to give them thdr cleaning power. But phos- phates are good fertilizers, as as being .good cleaning agents. When the detergent down the drain, its cleaning Job completed, it becomes power- ful fertilizer in our rivers, lakes and streams. Phcaphatea are "limiting" lor many species of pond scum or green algae, when the phosphate level in a body of water in- creased, the algae undergoes a tremendous growth, ar Now, algale are Important to of water, far they produce oxygen which aquatfc animals require, and also form tlw basis for a food chain which culminates in fish and fish-eating mammals and birds. But a plankton bloom, an over- production of plankton, clogs streams, itself uses great quan- of oxygen at night, and after its short life cycle, causes, further oxygen losses when rots and is decomposed. It naa been cetlmated that one pound phosphate, introduced into a lake or (tream, can generate tbe proliferation of 700 pounds of algae The majority of phosphate entering our comes from aewage efflu- ents, and the .prime contributor to phosphate content in our sew- age is the domestic use of high- phosphivto detergents.......... Pollution Control Southern Alberta has contacted several detergmt eompanim, asking about the concentration of phos- phates and for technical infor- mation. We have received lit- tle valuable information, but many responses have .JnBcated that housewives limply want whiter-than whke laundries, and neither- care nor want to knew about phosphates and 'their pol- luting characteristics. WE DON'T BELIEVE. THAT THIS IS SO. If the r o d u e a algae blooms ..in our atreama bother you, and you want to help, then purchase only tow- phosphate detergents, urge your grocer not to stock those high in phosphate concentration, and tell your friends to do the The phosphates In moat and detergents have been anal- ysed by Pollution Probe at University of Toronto, and are given- below for your me.
