Passionate about water pollution

I'm a chemist.
I taught high school chemistry for 7 years and one of my favorite facts from Chemical and Engineering News was that 60% of all water pollution comes from households. YOW!

The Chemical Industry has made a concerted effort to reduce their 40% in the last 10 years. There is still a lot to be done, but the industry is actively pursing "green" chemistry and reducing usage, waste, energy, etc.

However, household pollution is not decreasing. Laundry products are a big polluter. So are fertilizers. Anything we throw down the drain or pour on our land, that isn't water, has to be managed.

What do you think about that?
What do you do about that?
What's hard about that?
