We all know you should never pour spent chemicals down the loo. So far I managed not to do that by relying on my local photographer (who is still 15km away by bike, unfortunately).
Given the current global challenges though, I’m looking for a way to reduce my footprint in this sense and find some chemicals that would reduce my need of cycling 30 minutes with a 5-liter tank full of spent chemicals to a minimum.
Do you have any ideas/experience with “greener” chemicals for BW development?
I read you can make an ascorbic acid (vit. c)-based developer, so I guess that could be an option, and then I guess I could substitute the stop with a solution of water and white vinegar (the kind you use for cleaning).
Any experience with this? And would using the ascorbic acid dev make it so that I can drain it down the loo without causing trouble?
Then, of course, there is also the matter of the fixer… Insights appreciated about that too,
