Savvy Tips You Should Know

According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, over 86,000 chemicals are listed in the Toxic Substances Control Act’s Inventory which lists each chemical substance manufactured or processed in the US for use in everything we do and eat. Unfortunately, only a tiny fraction of the chemicals is tested to determine if it’s safe for human health. With household cleaners, ingredients and products don’t have to meet any sort of safety standards, and testing data is not required before bringing a product to market. For these reasons, we recommend seeking out brands and companies who are doing the double duty of providing an effective cleaning agent and designing products to lessen toxins in our home.

tips and tricks

Use a cleansing tablet to clean your cups and reusables instead of bringing it home dirty. After you finished squeezing that lemon, use it to wipe down your table and counter which naturally disinfects surfaces. Look for cleaning solutions with the fewest number of ingredients because what you wash your clothes or home with will eventually get on your skin.​

lingo to know

  • Low VOC - Low levels of volatile organic compounds
  • NPE - Nonylphenol ethoxylates are endocrine disrupting chemicals that imitate our hormone estrogen and can negatively impact our health
  • SLS - Sodium Laurel Sulfates, which increase suds, but become extremely harmful to our rivers, lakes and oceans because this gets piped out and can't be treated by treatment plants.

Just How Hard Is Cleaning Sustainably?

According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, over 86,000 chemicals are listed in the Toxic Substances Control Act’s Inventory which lists each chemical substance manufactured or processed in the US for use in everything we do and eat. Unfortunately, only a tiny fraction of the chemicals is tested to determine if it’s safe for human health. With household cleaners, ingredients and products don’t have to meet any sort of safety standards, and testing data is not required before bringing a product to market. For these reasons, we recommend seeking out brands and companies who are doing the double duty of providing an effective cleaning agent and designing products to lessen toxins in our home.

Luckily, many companies are focusing on providing cleaning solutions and tools that’s already put together and ready to go. Often, these companies were created by founders who experienced the negative health impacts of harmful chemicals used in conventional cleaning products or just realized that it wasn’t worth exposing these toxic chemicals to their friends and family.​

So, whether you are willing to follow a recipe or buy off the shelf, there is a real healthy solution out there for all of us. Remember, it’s not about perfection, but shifting towards a sustainable path.​
