Wangari's Kenya - Vid on Current

Vid by Bill Finnegan on Current screening room about Wangari Maathai's conservation effort. Watch it and do greenlight it so it can appear on current tv.

Is OMO biodegradable?

Thank you Afromusing for the vid. I enjoyed it. Wangari should be applauded for the great work she does for Kenyan's environment - and you for bringing her work to the forefront

Thats a cool video, it sprinkled some home sick dust...haha! it also reminds me of some Americans in my colle' asking me why wangari maathai hit a nation camera man. "I thot she was a respectable noble prize winner and a first lady?" I had a hard time trying to explain "Rucy" and Wangari are two different pple.

good work. Wangari has come a long way - remember when 3/4 of Kenya thought she was nuts? Visionaries are a rare breed of people.

watched the vid, thanks for the link. it was very educational. as for your question about Omo, here's my 2 cents (but i'm no expert on the issue) - its hard to tell if detergents are biodegradable cos they don't have a list of ingredients as they are not required to have one. but studies have been done on the effects of common detergent ingredients and their effects are usually not favourable to the environment. but to have a large scale effect, the quantities would have to be quite substantial and concentrated in a certain area. a good starting point to find out more is http://www.laundry-alternative.com/detergentsinfo.html. hope that helped answer your question

Wangari Maathai does her people proud. There's no nonsense about her. I would like to see a televised debate between her and that ignoramous that works for Monsanto, whose job it is to cheat poor farmers that genetically modified seeds will enhance productivity.

What that Monsanto-ite doesn't preach about is the threat to medium to long term food security.

My hat is off to Wangari Maathai.
