And it is not our object to destroy civilization. We do not desire to “divide up,” as people are in the habit of saying; we do not wish to throw humanity back into barbarism; on the contrary, we desire to lift the whole of humanity to the highest thinkable plane of civilization. We wish every individual without exception to have a share in the means of culture and education according to his capacities and his needs. This is the loftiest ideal that the human race can set before itself; and this ideal is possible today because it is only now that, in consequence of the thousands of years of progress towards civilization and of the tremendous acquisitions which man has gained in this age of culture; because only now are all the means and possibilities given through which we may realize this ideal condition in the way that the majority of men desire to realize it.
August Bebel, Socialism and the Student (1905)

I consider myself GREEN. I try to use Earth friendly cleaners, recycle, all the stuff that makes my way to Heaven an open road. I am an urban gardener/farmer. I don’t know all that I need to know so my books and bookmarked sites are many. Many times I search for organic methods and something as simple as where or how your water is treated can affect your plants.
One day as I was looking for pest management ideas I came across a page that said to use alcohol. Not rubbing alcohol it was noted as this was a petroleum product. Hmmm, I thought “Yeah, I guess so.” I went on reading and found a method using apple cider vinegar. Again, a note said not white vinegar as this, too, is a petroleum product!
That’s right, you heard me, a petroleum product! Now let me be clear….white vinegar,not other vinegars, is a petroleum product. How could this be? So I searched it out not wanting to made a fool of, and it turns out it is true. So, here is the skinny.
White vinegar, go get your bottle, is distilled petroleum if it does not say on the label that it is from grains and /or apples. It should NOT be used on your food. Even though it is sold in the grocery next to the dressings do not use it on your food, in canning or other ingested recipes. Apple cider vinegar is suspect as well. Look at the label. What does it say? Apple cider vinegar should be made from what? That’s right
not vinegar and caramel coloring.
So, now I feel horrible that we have been eating this crap for years but I also have been touting the Green Clean with it, as well. I use it with baking soda as a cleaner. So much for environmentally sound.Over the years we have probably dumped as much of this junk down the drain as Chevron has into the Gulf of Mexico. (Not really , my house is not that clean) But seriously, why have I never heard this before? On the many sites that think green why has this never come up? I am trying to rectify this misconception.
I urge you all to search this out on your own. Is anyone a chemist that can tell us it is environmentally safe (that does not work for industry)?
So in this case, NATURAL on the label really means a lot. Look for the real vinegars. They are worth the extra effort to find and heck, why not try making your own. Volcanoes must be made !
