OCT 22, planet-saving verse: phosphate detergents

 

PHOSPHATE-CONTAINING DETERGENTS                

Ecological problem emergent:

Home appliances use a detergent,

photo per televised documentary
In which phosphates are blended

To keep dirt suspended

(Soap for laundry or dishes).

Algal blooms choke out fishes.

Stop eutrophification — that's urgent!
Dr G.H. and Giorgio Coniglio, 2022


Authors' Note: 
Detergent is a Latin-derived term for a product that 'wipes away' dirt.
