Eco-friendly developer and fixer?
I'm bugging this forum more often than I should, but it only speaks of high qualification of people on here, doesn't it?
This time I have a problem with black and white chemicals. Unfortunately no logistic company will agree to import any sort of chemicals to Georgia unless they are safe for airmail. This is determined by MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet). Unfortunately I was unable to find any developer and fixer, MSDS of which would state that they are safe for airmail. As a result, I can not import those materials and have to rely solely on our local lab for BW processing. Sadly they aren't very flexible and results from various black and white films look almost the same.
I have read that one can make a developer from readily available materials, BUT I can't find the same for fixer. Unless I have a fixer, there's no point in making a developer. So, my question is:
1. Can one make a fixer on their own?
2. Is there any eco-friendly duo of developer and fixer which would be safe for airmail?
Little help, anyone?
