    HOPEFULLY SOMEONE WILL SEE THIS. THIS IS NOT THE FINAL ANSWER. VEGGIE ALTERNATIVES ARE STILL TOXIC IF YOU CONSIDER PESTICIDES AND HERBICIDES THAT GO INTO OUR ENVIRONMENT IF THEY ARE NOT ORGANIC. ALSO MOST SOY AND CANOLA IS GENETICALLY MODIFIED. THOSE CROPS NEED EVEN MORE PESTICIDES AND HERBICIDES AND WE DON'T KNOW THEIR EFFECTS ON HUMANS YET. WE MAY NOT BE EATING THE INK BUT GMO CROPS CAN BE CROSS-POLLINATED WITH OTHER CROPS. SO UNLESS WE ARE TALKING ORGANIC INK, IT'S STILL TOXIC.

    I didn't know some were made from vegetables.

    Can using eco friendly ink bring down the cost of those ink cartridges we use at home in our printers???? Keep me posted, I'll try. I have use those cheaper, no name cartgides which are a fraction of the cost. Usually they work and they are MUCH CHEAPER. I had to use name brand ink recently (I was in a pinch) the cost was shocking. If soy based ink is made available to the consumer at a svings over the name brand ones, I would give it a try.

    I've been wondering about harmful chemicals in the ink of things I compost, with or without worms. Petroleum products might be scarey...thanks
