What Can We Do?
Feeling overwhelmed or like every product is harmful to your body? We’ve been there too. Take a deep breath, at first it may seem impossible to have a chemical free home, but don’t be overwhelmed. There are a few simple, practical changes that can make a huge impact on your home.
The first step to a chemical free home is to become aware. Understand that there are chemicals found in many household products that can be harmful to your health. You are already becoming aware of harmful chemicals by taking this class!
Step 2: Focus on avoiding chemicals you can control, like the products you choose to have in your home.
Step 3: Educate yourself on ingredients and chemicals you should avoid.
Step 4: Take action. You don’t need to replace every single product in your home tomorrow. Transitioning to a healthy, plant-based home is lifestyle journey and you can make changes overtime. Start by replacing the products you use most frequently. This may be your household cleaner or maybe your hand soap. Focus on replacing products used on those most susceptible. Children and those with a compromised immune system can be more prone to the harmful effects of chemicals.
