The Gulf-Friendly Product Guide: Alternatives to Petroleum-Based Goods

The Gulf disaster has brought into cruel relief our reliance on petroleum-based products and made it all too clear how much that reliance is costing us and our environment. Reducing our dependence on oil means burning less gas by carpooling, taking public transportation, bicycling and walking.

In this series have a look at how oil is used in products and how to stretch our resources farther by choosing petroleum-free products, recycling plastic waste and buying items with recycled content.
