While I was in Costa Rica recently for my zoology master's degree program, our only option if we wanted to wash laundry was to use the facilities at La Selva Biological Research station. In order to do laundry there, we were asked to use biodegradable laundry soap. I've been wanting to make my own laundry detergent instead of buying it from the store because it's cheaper and better for the environment, but I hadn't realized just how bad for the environment my current store-bought detergent could be. Biodegradable detergent is a better option because there are fewer chemicals left over in the water after you're done.

Our pets of the week are Fluffy and Casey. Fluffy is 1-1/2 years old, very friendly and gets along well with other cats. Casey is a darling Shepherd mix puppy. He is about 4-1/2 months old and weighs 25 pounds. Please see our other available pets at our Web site www.homes4pets.org . We have a variety of puppies and kittens as well as wonderful adult dogs and cats that would make great pets. Our animals have had health screenings, are well adjusted, friendly and ready to make new starts.
