  • Reusable mops, clean sponges, rags instead of paper towels, and HEPA vacuums all work towards providing your home and environment with fresh, clean air, and reduce your consumption of nonrenewable resources.
  • Statistics indicate that close to 17,000 types of chemicals are currently available in the market in the form of various household cleaning agents. Of the 17,000, only 30 percent are being tested for side effects on human health as well as the environment. The number of active chemicals present in various cleaning products is sometimes as high as 275, and the EPA refers to some of these household cleaning chemicals as “pesticides” because these are also designed to kill pests.
  • The toxic chemicals in some commercial cleaning products have been linked to numerous health concerns, including asthma, reproductive difficulties, birth defects, respiratory problems, neurological disorders, autoimmune diseases, Alzheimer’s, Attention Deficit Disorder, Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, and cancer. Within 26 seconds after exposure to chemicals such as cleaning products, traces of these chemicals can be found in every organ in the body. -Healthy Child, Healthy World
