We live in a fast paced, technologically connected world, where everything is available at a click of a button. This makes it increasingly easy to neglect or overlook the impact that the cleaning products we use have on the environment and our families health.
The importance of natural and eco-friendly cleaning products become more prominent if we take into account the amount of chemicals that we are exposed to on a day to day basis. From the cleaning products we use to keep our homes & clothes clean, to the products that we use to wash our face. Everything is laden with potentially harmful substances which we might not know a lot about.
Are you aware of Phthalates, Parabens, Galaxolide and Tonalide present in household products like air fresheners, washing detergents, laundry liquids, shampoos, personal hygiene and pet care products? These are substances which give the products an alluring fragrance. They have been linked to health risks such as early puberty in girls, lower sperm counts in men, and it may also be a risk factor for later-life breast cancer. They can spread through inhalation but can sometimes be absorbed through skin contact, because the skin has no natural safeguard against chemicals and toxins.
These chemical are also known to create problems in the endocrine glands. According to www.enhs.umn.edu they are linked to a host of problems ranging from dizziness, headaches, irritation in the eyes and throat, vestibular dysfunction, weakness and spasms in the arms and legs.
Outside of our homes, these damaging household cleaning products eventually end up in our gardens or waterways polluting and harming local plant ecosystems and animal habitats.
One of the many myths surrounding the usage of natural eco-friendly cleaning products is that they are costly. The truth is that eco-friendly cleaning products are not only environmentally friendly but they are cost effective and efficient.
Whilst it is impossible to eliminate all harmful chemicals from your home, choosing eco-friendly cleaning products will reduced the risk of health problems related to exposure to toxic ingredients.
