There are many reasons why lowering all chemicals you use on yourself and around your home is so important. Since launching our natural cleaning product ranges, KINN and Ecos we have had great reviews and people are so surprised at how they all actually work as well as the brands that contain so many potent chemicals that can be detrimental to your health. Four reasons to make your home safer now:
1. Labels: On the back of your regular cleaning products that read ‘flammable’ or ‘toxic’ should make you ask yourself why would you want to use them? Some ingredients in these products are downright dangerous! If you have small children or pets that are vulnerable and become closer to these fumes and chemical’s you should be really concerned. Babies who spend time sitting on the floor or crawling around, then they put their fingers in their mouths. Or cats licking their paws. All the chemicals from a potent floor cleaner are being transferred into their bodies and chemicals building up inside them. Many of the chemicals in conventional products are often carcinogens, neurotoxins, mutagens, teratogens or endocrine disrupters. These are all reasons to ditch them in favour of natural green cleaning products.
2. The air we breathe: VOC’s otherwise known as Volatile Organic Compounds have been associated with a host of health problems like damage to the liver, kidney and our central nervous system, are released when products are used and linger in the air long after use.
3. Love our Planet: When you switch to non-toxic cleaning products you are also helping our precious environment. Any toxins washed down the drains and end up in our oceans and river systems are affecting the earth’s eco-systems. We all know we need to do everything we can to help protect our planet so making the switch is so important.
4. Make your own: There are also a lot of recipes out there that we can go back to using. Vinegar, bicarbonate of soda are just a few cheap products that can do so much. Natural and cost effective. So it doesn’t have to be expensive and this way also doesn’t use as much waste.
