As you may be noticing, the concept of going green and natural is becoming tainted by stores, newspapers, magazines, TV and radio commercials and advertisements that are selling toxic products under the name of “all-natural”.
I just went through the ‘Green Edition’ of the Canadian House and Home Magazine and discovered 12 out of the first 50 pages had ads that were for toxic chemical-laden cosmetics, body care, or hair care products. As someone who went through the magazine looking for inspiration, ideas, and best practices as I continue to live more naturally, I was distressed to find 1/4 of it advertised products that were misleading!
Instead of dwelling in what I couldn’t change, I realized there is something I can do.
I have created a 10 week series of articles on 'my' Top 10 Toxic Household Products.
Many of you are already doing what you know,
however, there is so much we are still learning. Hopefully each week for the
next 10 weeks you may learn something useful and, can help others become more
aware of how to live more naturally.
** Feel free to forward these articles to someone who might benefit from the information. If we can each reach one more person today with the knowledge we do have, that could be another thousand by tomorrow.**
I am also offering a free 30 minute coaching call to anyone who is interested in learning more about going chemical free in their home. So spread the word, share this with your friends and family members, have them subscribe to the newsletter, forward these articles, and be the change!
Here is the link to this
week's introductory article to the Top 10 Toxic Products:
