EU takes on the Global Polluters that the UK can’t

Laundry and dishwasher detergents to become phosphate free

One small but significant chance to come out of the European Union last week has been to push for the reduction in phosphates.  Something which will benefit both the environment, and our children.

The regulation aims to reduce the level of phosphorus in European Union waste water in order to prevent eutrophication – the overgrowth of algae in streams and lakes which can starve fish and plant life of oxygen. This is particularly a problem  in environmentally sensitive areas where a small change can make a huge impact upsetting the local ecosystem.
