While I would love to be able to go down to the local still and fill a mason jar with distilled goodness (if only to check the experience off of a list), what is pictured at right is hardly something anyone would want to drink. Indeed, with the exception of some crazy concoction I had out of a plastic bottle while in Thailand some 15 years ago, I can honestly say that I have never had any unlicensed spirits and don’t even know if the color of the liquid represented here is anything close to what one would expect from moonshine.
What I do know, however, is that I can walk three blocks from my house and fill any container I happen to bring with me with hand soap, dish soap, laundry liquid, household cleanser or any assortment of liquid detergent. While folks keep telling me to switch to the lid that Glenn Beck uses that is free of BHA/BPA/PCP or whatever, I am sure that it is ok to use the old-fashioned lid with my soap. Right?
Green Scene is the spot and they have tons of stuff for the green person’s lifestyle. Sure, a lot of the things are expensive luxury items like bags made from reclaimed material that was once used on the side of a truck last seen cruising on the Autobahn or over the Pyrenees. But, if it is soap you want, Green Scene is the place for you.
Next time I go, I might even buy that cute sticker I saw: Say no to plastic bags! Damn – too bad it’s made out of plastic. Nice thought, though.
