I am reminded of an incident many years ago that I wrote in a post about my own grandson swallowing dishwashing detergent from my open dishwasher. It fortunately had a happy ending simply because I had chosen to make my home “toxin-free” by changing brands to non-toxic products.
Right now moms all over the United States have traveled to Washington, D.C. and are marching to get the message out, urging Congress to protect our families by supporting comprehensive chemicals reform to keep our kids safe from toxics.
According to MomsRising.org our outdated chemicals policy leaves us and our kids exposed to toxic chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects, asthma, & other serious illnesses. Our current chemicals legislation, the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), has not been updated since 1976. Back then, we didn’t know as much as we do now about how toxic chemicals can migrate from the materials and products in which they’re used – including furniture, plastics, and food cans – into our bodies. These policies need to be updated! Moms have enough to think about without having to also worry about toxic chemicals in our homes, drinking water, and environment.
As families concerned about our environment and the effect all of these toxic chemicals, we are being asked to counter the chemical lobbyists (who are spending millions of dollars to block a meaningful update to TSCA). Simply go to this link and sign your name to help “the moms and the kids on the Hill in DC” today.
Also, think about what you can do to eliminate those household chemicals found in common cleaning products, dishwashing powders, air fresheners, laundry detergents ~ the list goes on and on. I have found using the following products both safe and work. Try them ~ there is a 100% money-back guarantee.
