Is It Time to Upgrade Your Cleaning Products?

 

I recenly was contacted by Emily Johnston of Gracefully Green Baby. She is a natural/green product guru and offered to write a guest post for us. She was also kind enough to include a 10% off promo code for our readers. Thanks Emily!!!

 

Subject: Is it time to upgrade your cleaning products?

Infants and children naturally absorb more of their environment than adults; they
also spend much more time on the ground and putting objects in their mouths. We
lock away harsh cleaning products under the sink, but we may not realize that they
leave residue behind that could potentially be harmful to children. Did you know
that within 26 seconds after exposure to chemicals such as cleaning products, traces
of these chemicals can be found in every organ in the body? 1 Pretty scary huh!?!

Here’s a quick checklist to keep in mind the next time you’re shopping for cleaning
products:
– Full ingredient disclosure
– 100% natural ingredient sources
– Non-toxic formulations
– Biodegradable formulations
– No animal testing

Watch out for products that simply list “eco-friendly” or “green” because
they aren’t always what they claim. We here at GracefullyGreenBaby.com
really love Babyganics (http://babyganics.com/) and Rockin Green (http://
www.gracefullygreene.com/brands/Rockin%27-Green.html).

Drop by GracefullyGreenBaby.com anytime, and say hello! We carry natural choices
for happy homes and healthy babies. In fact, use the discount code “hello” and get
10% off your first purchase!
