Recipes have been all the rage for the past few posts so it was due time for a round-up! Considering healthy living is about more than what we eat its important to point out that environmental toxins pop up in more than our food. Cleaning products can be a huge culprit as conventional brands are often loaded with chemicals that can cause allergies, hormone imbalances and disease. Don’t freak out–making the switch to toxin-free cleaning products doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive–it can be as simple as a spray bottle filled with distilled white vinegar and water or choosing one of my picks!
If you feel overwhelmed at the idea of making this switch– A great place to start is to check out the Environmental Working Groups guide to healthy cleaners–its one of my favorite resources (and all of my pick’s are all EWG approved.) Use their guide to learn more about specific chemicals to avoid as well as to find out their top picks for healthy cleaners. Here is a link to EWG’s Hall of Shame List of Cleaners–you know, the worst of the worst. Another great goal may be to simply avoid this list. Here’s the deal. The more information you collect–then better equipped you will be to make decisions that feel right to you. Here are my picks for clean, green cleaning products — think of this as a cheat sheet to get you started!
