"I always feel inspired
and refocused when I come to 1230 TWC"
You could be forgiven for thinking that the title of this blog means nothing to you. We are brainwashed into thinking that anything on the supermarket shelves must be ok to use otherwise the goverment would ban it, wouldn’t they? Not necessarily. Because I have an eco friendlly cleaning company, I have carried out some research on the web into the toxic chemicals that are used in conventional cleaning products and the results are staggering.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the air inside the typical home is on average 2-5 times more polluted than the air just outside—and in extreme cases 100 times more contaminated—largely because of household cleaners and pesticides.
Toxic Chemicals can be taken in through the skin and the breath. Babies crawel around the floor all the time, yet most people give no thought to the chemicals that they are breathing in. Skin scoriacis and asthma are on the increase. Taking in toxic chemicals into the body does not start when we are ready to begin crawling, it starts way before in the womb. We are told of the green issues via the media in the form of recycling and driving our cars less often, walking more, but I never hear anyone mention cleaning products, yet these polute the air and us just as much.
Helen Perivier, Toxics Campaigner for Greenpeace International said: “It is shocking that such chemicals are in the human body at any stage of our life, let alone at the very start, when the child is most vulnerable.”
Andrew Lee of WWF-UK said: “These chemicals should not be in products, let alone in developing babies.”
next time you pick up a cleaning product, take a look at the label before you use it.
If you feel strongly like I do about toxic chemicals in your cleaning products, leave a message on this blog site and perhaps together we can make a change.
