Description

A newspaper article detailing Mayor Bob Carr's (1899-1967) pleas for soft soap usage. Carr served as Mayor of Orlando, Florida, from 1956 to 1967. In the article, City Purchasing Agent Walt Fish says that Orlando now only purchases biodegradable soap, and Mayor Carr asks that citizens do the same. The biodegradable soap is believed to break down quicker in sewage treatment systems, though their efficacy is yet to be determined.
