Meanwhile, you’ve got the faucet dumping rivers into your drain as you scrub your dishes with *soon-to-be* landfill sponges and a toxic soap that smells like a paint-can.

I get it, you want to be environmentally friendly. You’d love to be that person who wakes up at 4am to promote their “Save the Anteaters” campaign, just before they march down the streets with a handmade, 100% recycled bamboo, protest sign reading, “I LOVE MOTHER EARTH, DO YOU!?” But you’d also love to be a hibernating bear who only wakes up to eat cold pizza that just-so-happens to be on the floor beside your bed. Is there no middle ground? Well I believe there is!
