The Giants go green

Good thing the Giants already wear those off-white home uniforms, because if my experience with all-natural detergents is any guide, they would have looked pretty dingy soon anyway:

Though baseball may be a long way from getting performance-enhancing substances out of its players’ bodies, the Giants announced last month that they have fully “detoxed” their laundry operations by switching to botanically based suds from VASKA, a manufacturer of institutional laundry and cleaning products based just across the bay in Berkeley, California. VASKA’s biodegradable products are phosphate-free and certified under the EPA’s Safer Detergents Stewardship Initiative (SDSI) as containing no hormone-disrupting nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs).

Good thing the Giants were using the non-natural, hormone-disrupting cleansers before. If they weren’t, Barry Bonds probably would have exploded and flooded the peninsula with testosterone.

Anyone else thinking of Tetsuo from Akira?
