Certain shrubbery can help eliminate indoor air pollutants like formaldehyde and benzene. Try Golden pothos, English ivy, and peace lilies.

Mr. Clean: Non-Toxic Household Cleaners

Brianne

Wanna make your place sparkle like the top of Mr. Clean’s head? Skip the toxic cleaners for eco-friendly brands like SimpleGreen, Greenworks, Mrs. Meyers, Ecover, Method, Green Depot, and Seventh Generation. Cleaning products end up … in our homes, cars, and office as well as on dishes, countertops, furniture, clothes, floors, windows, and hovering through the air. Most of the conventional ones we’re used to are toxic and nearly all of the traditional cleaning products we have grown up with are petroleum-based and have perilous health and environmental implications. Sit back and think about it for a moment … our traditional household cleaners all have the warning seal, DO NOT CONSUME. Fair enough. But if it’s harmful to consume isn’t it harmful to breathe it in and let it leach into our skin? We think, yes! Instead of opting for cleaning products that annihilate everything in their path with toxic, there are plenty of natural products and methods that keep a house clean and fresh-smelling minus the toxic side effects. Try it!

The kiddos are highly vulnerable to chemical toxicants. Children drink more water, eat more food, and breathe more air than adults … this means that children will have substantially heavier exposures than adults to any toxins that are present.

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

    Hi, I apologize for asking this inquiry here, but I couldn’t find a contact form or something so I assumed I could I leave my enquiry here. I run a blogengine blog but I am receiving bigger amounts of spam. I see u use wordpress, is it effortless to regulate spam with wordpress or doesn’t it make any difference? I hope you will respond to my comment or maybe send me an email with your answer if you don’t want to approve the comment. Best regards, Annie

The Coast is Clear: Non-Toxic Sunscreens

Brianne

Harsh rays can be terrifying but chemical-laden sunscreens are too. Most sun lotions contain toxins like oxybenzone  — a probable carcinogen that can damage DNA. These terrifying chems can seep into your skin and wash off your body into lakes and oceans impacting marine life negatively. Instead, go for eco-friendly mineral-based sunscreens that block rays without nasty chems. They use natural UVA and UVB blockers like titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. Fear not — to help us sort through it, here is a list of the top 10 Environmental Working Group - approved mineral-based sunscreens:

  • All Terrain

  • Badger

  • Beyond Coastal

  • California Baby

  • Caribbean Solutions

  • Desert Essence

  • Episencial

  • Estion

  • Jason Natural Cosmetics

  • Kabana Skin Care

Greenista Cocktail Factoid: Researchers estimate that about 4,000 to 6,000 metric tons of sunscreen wash off swimmers annually into oceans worldwide and that sunscreen-induced bleaching threatens up to 10% of coral reefs.

Shaken Not Stirred: Non-Toxic Cleaning Products

Brianne

Sick of bonding with your chem-filled cleaners? Try Shaklee on the double (07). These non-toxic, biodegradable products have been around since the 1950s – before green was cool – and were also the first company in the world to obtain Climate Neutral™ certification and totally offset its CO2 emissions. They have a bleach- and ammonia-free cleaner for everything including household, kitchen, and laundry. We love their one-stop-shop Get Clean Caddy Organizer Kit ($31.65) stocked with spray bottles, a measuring scoop, cleaning cloths, and more. Plus as foodies, the Scour Off Heavy Duty Paste ($8.50) is totally up our alley. It removes stuck-on messes including burnt pots and pans like you have a Goldfinger…er, touch.

Greenista Cocktial Factoid: Over 90% of poison exposures happen at home and common bleach is the #1 household chemical involved in poisoning.
