As I mentioned on the indoor air quality page, many household cleaners, detergents and air fresheners emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that can affect the health of your family. In fact, the National Safety Council states that “…the most common poisons include prescription and over-the-counter medications, cleaning products and personal care products.” They’re talking about the 60,000 children each year that are accidentally poisoned across America.
Shocking right? Even my own daughter came into the kitchen to find her one year old tearing into cleaners under the sink. She was relieved that her selection of cleaning products were environmentally friendly and non-toxic!
Not only do harsh cleaning products create a sick home, but they also do significant damage to the environment. Our oceans, lakes and streams are being polluted at an alarming rate. The EPA talks about “greening up our products.”
I’ve chosen to use cleaning products sourced from a company who is dedicated to protecting not just our homes and families, but the environment as a whole. Their cleaning products do the job well, and they’re non-toxic, non-polluting alternatives to normal store brands that cost less per use, and are delivered to your door – the convenience is amazing.
Watch the video above to learn more. I’ve been using these products for over 25 years, and have been completely happy with their performance in my home.
