. Won't laundry detergents and shampoos coming from the washer and shower kill the plants?
.
Certain materials that make their way to the planters can definitley cause harm to the plants in your personal ecosystem. Earthship occupants need to employ a healthy dose of common sense in determining what is acceptable or unacceptable to deposit into the ecosystem. Many traditional soaps are perfectly fine for plants and even a source of health. Anti-bacterial soaps may be more questionable, and certainly anything toxic to humans should be handled in another way. Living in an earthship will require a review of your most commonly-used products and attention to any new products being considered for use in the dwelling.
