Meet the Microbes http://archives.microbeworld.org/microbes/

Good Things Microbes do: http://archives.microbeworld.org/know/everyday.aspx

Microbes make enzymes that we use in making hundreds of products. We grow billions of bacteria in giant fermenting tanks, then break them apart to get their enzymes for making soy sauce, soda, beer, wine, cheese, infant formula, chewing gum, leather goods, paper, laundry detergent, and even the stone-washed look on blue jeans
