Do Your Homework
Keep toxic chemicals out of your household by being a smart consumer.
Cut It Out
The best thing you can do to prevent toxic exposure is to stop buying products that contain dangerous chemicals. This can either mean using commercial brands that manufacture their products without these chemicals, or making your own cleaning products out of simple, non-toxic ingredients. Switching to less toxic products not only benefits the health of your loved ones, but the health of the environment as well! View recipes for some safe and cheap homemade cleaning products online.
Don’t Believe Everything You Read
Just because a product claims to be ok for you or the environment doesn’t mean it is true. Labels such as “natural,” “environmentally friendly,” “eco-safe,” “green,” and even “non-toxic” have no legal definition and can be found on products that are anything but. However, there are certain certifications and labels that can be trusted.
