JULY CHALLENGE!!!

Protect your family and the environment with nontoxic, biodegradable cleaning products

An average home generates over 25 pounds of toxic, hazardous waste each year.  Much of this waste can be attributed to household cleaning products.

The EPA says that only a fraction of the more than 75,000 registered chemicals have gone through testing for human health concerns. More than nine out of ten suspected poison exposures occur at home with household products.

According to a 15 year study, women who work at home have a 54% higher death rate from cancer than those who work away from home.  The study concluded that this was a direct result of the increased exposure to toxic chemicals, many of which are found in common household products.

If there is only one thing you can do: You can make a positive impact on the planet as well as the health of your family and your budget by using nontoxic, concentrated, biodegradable green cleaners in your home. It is possible for the average household to eliminate 108 pounds of packaging waste from landfills, and 248 pounds of greenhouse gases.  That’s the equivalent of planting 10 trees!

Take small steps: Baking soda is a non-toxic cleanser that is safe enough to eat. Begin your switch to green cleaners by trying baking soda in place of cleanser for cleaning your kitchen or bathroom sink this month.

Inner simplicity: So when you start to run out of some of your cleaning products, research the market for safe, non polluting green products.  And when you go outside and look at our beautiful mountains, lakes and streams, you can feel good about doing your part to keep God’s creation clean and green.

Outer simplicity: Toxic products create air and water pollution during manufacture and use.  Nontoxic, concentrated biodegradable cleaners have less of a negative impact on drinking water and the air we breathe in the U.S and around the globe. By switching to nontoxic cleaning products you will be loving your neighbor as yourself.
