I’m also a college student, currently residing in an apartment attached to my dad’s house. I am thankful to be living rent-free, but I’m miserable. I recently came back from a vacation to New York City and, as always, I loved it! But I get depressed every time I come home. I have dreams of moving there. There is a guy there who works for the NYPD, who I see every time I visit. I’m not sure if my feelings for him are infatuation or true love. I’m unsure of how he feels about me.

More than a year after Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that New York would require manufacturers to list byproducts and contaminants found in soaps and other consumer cleaning products, the initiative has yet to be fully implemented.

The DEC has had the authority to require disclosure since the early 1970s and for years environmental groups have pushed for action. “It’s … [Read more...] about Soap byproduct and contaminant listings rule not yet in effect in New York state
