Environmental toxins are important to cut down on. With toxins entering our body from our air, clothing, food, water, cosmetics, soaps, shampoos etc., not being aware of what we’re exposed to can increase our risks of disease.
Eighty-five thousand chemicals are legal for commerce in the US. Incredibly, all are essentially unregulated. In 2010, chemicals accounted for more than $765 billion in revenue. For example, the six billion pounds of BPA produced every year generates about $8 billion in profits for its manufacturers.
One thing many people don’t realize is that especially during winter months the air in your house doesn’t circulate and filter as well. When you use cleaning products and things like that, you are toxifying the air pretty quickly without having anything to help clean or circulate the air. You and your family then breathe this air all day long. This is partly why it’s so important to choose all natural cleaning products as much as you can.
Whether you are in a small apartment or a big house, having clean air is important. Plants are great for removing carbon dioxide from the air but some plants are even more powerful than that and can do a great job improving the air quality in your home. Plus they look great and carry a great energy.
