People talk about saving whales and trees and this and that every day… not that these are unworthy causes… but so few people realize that even “little” things, like making a choice to use safer household products, can make a huge difference on the environment as well.
People talk about “going green” and losing weight and eating healthy, yet they wash their clothes and dishes in chemicals that can destroy local waterways and lakes, or use fabric softeners (among other things) that contain formaldehyde! It is a “known human carcinogen” that has been linked to cancer and other health issues… heck! they embalm cadavers with it… why on earth would you want to use that in your home… in your personal products?? Did you know that it’s in your child’s bath products? When my son was born I was given a ton of bath products for him… I threw every single one of them out because of their ingredients. Are you washing your baby with toxins? And how about parabens? Are you brushing your teeth or deodorizing your underarms with something that is being linked to breast cancer?
People say “what can I do?” but don’t do anything because they think it’s “too hard” or have a thousand different excuses for why they can’t make a change for the better.
In reality it’s as easy as switching stores. We HAVE a voice. We speak with our wallets. When we all stop buying products that are poisoning our children companies will be forced to change their ways and our world truly will become a better place.
I made the switch 10 years ago. Will you?
