Unplug air fresheners (baking soda is a natural alternative). Use natural household cleansers. Make sure your shower curtains and liners are eco-friendly. Get rid of non-stick cookware (consider replacing with properly “seasoned” cast iron skillets). Read labels (Teflon can appear in lipstick, for example). Pop your own popcorn (bags for microwave popcorn often contain Teflon). Dust and vacuum often. Use chemical-free natural fibers. Avoid white albacore canned tuna, which has the highest level of mercury. Wash your hands with soap, rather than with anti-bacterial cleansers. Aim for chemical free lawns (mine is all weeds, but it’s green in color and green in enviro-friendliness). Avoid putting plastic containers in the microwave. Store food in Pyrex or other glass containers rather than plastic. Use cloth bags for shopping. Buy a steel reusable water bottle and avoid disposable plastic bottles. Buy new pillows yearly (as much as half the weight of your pillow can be dust mites). Avoid plastic bags from the dry cleaner (allow your clothes to air out; plastic traps chemicals inside). Drink filtered tap water, which is better than drinking bottled water. Use a filter for your shower to prevent gasses from being released. Comment below or share online.
