Why go green?


Why go Green?

If you’re going to choose one area in your life to be green, it should be in the eradication of harmful chemicals from your home. Traditional household cleaners are full of unhealthy chemicals. Some of these chemicals have been linked to asthma and even cancer. A recent study showed just how polluted our bodies are when it found 287 chemicals in the bloodstream of newborn babies, of those, 180 are known to cause cancer in people and animals, 217 are toxic to the brain and nervous system.

How did this happen?

We used to live in drafty homes with the windows open, where the air could circulate better, keeping homes healthier. After World War II we started sealing up our homes airtight with the introduction of air conditioning. Simultaneously, chemicals began to be used to make products for our homes and bodies. Where before home sweet home was a breezy and healthy place, now it’s just a vacuum-sealed hotbed of toxins causing all kinds of health issues. Asthma rates have soared to over 20 million. Allergies, chemical sensitivities and cancer rates keep rising. This reality is made worse when you consider that today, the average person spends 90% of their time indoors. We sealed up, used chemicals, and became unhealthy. (Eric Ryan and Adam Lowry, ‘Squeaky Green’ 2008)
