Chances are, there are toxins loitering around the corner in your home, often, when you don't even realize it. Here are four simple steps to make your house greener. Start slowly by replacing just your top one of your most-used/most-consumed products first. Then follow the 80/20 rule - 80 per cent of the time buy safer products so you don’t have to worry about the 20 per cent of the time you have no control. Replace plastics with glass in the kitchen as chemicals can leak into them. Replace reusable plastic water bottles even the BPA-free ones with stainless steel or glass. Try eating more organic or at least eat the clean 15 rather then the dirty dozen. Avoid artificial fragrance as indoor air pollution is the nation’s #1 environmental health problem, avoiding air fresheners that can contribute airborne toxic chemicals. Common household dust is one of the biggest exposures to toxins in the home, concentrate dusting in bedrooms, family room, kids’ play area.
