Clorox claims that there is a difference between chlorine and chlorine bleach, and that chlorine bleach, while made with chlorine, contains no free chlorine itself. It is actually sodium hypochlorite. Made from salt (sodium chloride) it mostly returns to salt. That which doesn't return to salt biodegrades in sewage treatment or septic system. http://www.clorox.com/health/blchfact.html If you are willing to believe Clorox, there is no environmental danger to using chlorine in the kitchen.
