Toxins in the Home

Did you know every day we are exposed to more toxic chemicals inside our homes than out? The EPA reports that Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs...gases emitted from certain solids & liquids such as cleaners) can be 2-5 times higher in your home than outside!!

Think how much of your day...and your childrens' spent inside your house! Pretty scary.

I know there is no way for me to protect my children from ever being exposed to hazardous chemicals & toxic cleaners (because I do live in the real world and not in a sterile bubble)...but I also know I can make my home safer & healthier so I can help them avoid repeated, unnecessary exposures in our own house.
