Before we had ecoplugs we used other chemicals that have either now been 
banned or supplier was not prepared to test with animals to continue 
certification.Personally I would not stop using, but we should encourage 
manufacturers to come up with an acceptable solution.Are we now going back to 
using ropes made from natural products? We know the implications are huge but 
there is not an overnight solution.PhilipSent from Samsung tablet.
