Do You Microwave Your Plastic Containers?

I used to. I’ve been known to throw them in the dishwasher, too. I’ve slathered my children with heavily fragranced shampoos and lotions. I’ve served my family tons of canned foods.

But over the past year, and particularly since I started working here, I’ve cut back on those habits, or eliminated them altogether. Read our story about the toxins that are all around us, and you may very well do the same.

One thing I really appreciate about this article is that it leaves you feeling empowered, not hopelessly terrified. Yes, toxic chemicals are lurking everywhere. But you can avoid them, as we outline for you in the piece. And you can speak out against dangerous chemicals being used in the products that we all come in contact with every single day. Major reform is underway, in the form of the Toxic Chemicals Safety Act of 2010, a bill that was introduced late last month. It’ll obviously take a long time to truly overhaul our current system, but until them, it’s comforting to know that you can make a difference in your own home.

    I do enjoy the way you have framed this concern plus it really does supply me personally some fodder for thought. Nevertheless, coming from what I have personally seen, I really trust when the feedback pile on that folks continue to be on issue and not embark on a tirade associated with some other news of the day. Yet, thank you for this fantastic piece and while I do not necessarily concur with it in totality, I value the standpoint.

More people must learn this and understand this aspect of the story. I cant consider youre not more widespread since you undoubtedly have the gift.

    It’s good to finally see a post that is written by an author who actually cares about the subject. It makes a huge difference from the keyword stuffed drivel out there. I really enjoyed what I’ve read here, thanks so much for a very well-written post!
