According to this article, a Narragansett lifeguard has created a “chemical-free sunscreen” made of zinc oxide. He was frustrated that “chemical products don’t hold up in water.” Why is it always the sunscreens?
According to its website, the park is also a “designated Organic Zone,” though presumably not in the “carbon-based” sense.
“F No, Chemical Free” muse @carmendrahl has a bone to pick with this otherwise interesting Google Science Fair project, which tests whether the chemical combo of “ozone dissolved in water” is a good disinfectant for handwashing. (It is.) Carmen notes, “the kid may not know better, but Google should.”
My favorite part is the suggestion that you add white vinegar and “allow to fizz.” Apparently no one at this company ever did the 2nd-grade make-a-volcano project. Which is a chemistry experiment.

“With this sustainable hand soap you don’t have to worry about any chemicals.”
Related: If the soap is “sustainable,” does that mean it will never run out?

At a “chemical-free” eatery, you always leave hungry for more.
“No More Chemicals” sounds like it should be on a placard, right under “The End Is Nigh.”
Chemical-free water? Innovative, indeed!
(Seriously, Siemens: You should know better.)
Hurrah! @easternblot at Nature tells the heartening story of how a couple of undergrads may have convinced Duvel to stop describing its delicious product as “chemical-free.” There is hope yet for the world.
