So read the ingredients on the cosmetics and health products you buy. If it uses plastic beads, don't buy it. There are plenty of alternatives out there as companies such as Burt's Bees, Tom's, St. Ives, Weleda and others well know and use. Support the companies who are doing the responsible thing! http://www.nytimes.com/2013/12/15/us/scientists-turn-their-gaze-toward-tiny-threats-to-great-lakes.html?nl=todaysheadlines&emc=edit_th_20131215

After years of controversy, the towers of Asarco will be demolished this weekend. Much earlier in this blog I had posted about the Asarco controversy. This isn't really the end. Although the towers re coming down, no one seems to quite know what to do about prime real estate that is saturated with heavy metals and is unarguably an integral part of the history of El Paso and the University of Texas at El Paso.
