So we've demonized shopping bags. Why stop there?

We've all accomplished a great feat. We've made shopping bags as popular as swastikas. Why? Because of our love-hate with oil, we use it all the time and spout vitriol at anyone else who uses it.

You've given up bags. Keep the momentum going and give up these other petroleum products:
  • Chewing gum
  • Hair dye
  • Asphalt
  • Crayons (the main ingredient is paraffin wax, a petroleum product also used in most candles)
  • Candles (see above)
  • The wax layer of the packaging your frozen food comes in. (And, of course, the fertilizers that farmers used to grow much of that food.)
  • Ink
  • Panty hose
  • Heart Valves
  • Pillows
  • Aspirin
  • Ammonia
  • Toothpaste
  • Toothbrushes
  • Guitar strings
  • Shoe polish
  • Tape
  • Rubbing Alcohol
  • Vitamin capsules (think you're healthy when you're dosing yourself with a little bit of petroleum every day?)
  • Solvents
  • Caulking
  • Insecticides
  • Deodorant
Ask your eco-conscious grocery store when they're going to stop selling the above items.
