Spring Cleaning For Your Health


In our Front Yard

Open Up - Open those windows & let the fresh air in!

Clear Out - Get rid of harmful cleansers in your closet & cupboards. Lots of disinfectants used at home contain formaldehyde, chlorine, & ammonia. They're released into the air when you clean & inhaled. They also linger after cleaning is over. Switch to non-toxic cleaning products or make your own! Don't forget to switch your laundry detergent too!                                                                          

Watch What You Wear - Wear natural fabrics like cotton & silk, or newer trends like bamboo & hemp. Your skin is the largest organ of the body!

Eat Well- Try to avoid herbicides, fungicides, & insecticides by purchasing organic and/or washing your foods well

Walk- If you're able, walk to work & school & everywhere you can for that matter. Try to walk where there is no air pollution from traffic, even  just a short distance away is much better!

Light Candles- Light Beeswax or Soya Candles, avoid paraffin.

Bye bye Carpet - If it's an option, remove your carpet. Never mind the glue, carpets trap bacteria, pollutants, & allergens. If you suffer from allergies, wood or tile flooring could really help allieviate symptoms. Use washable area rugs instead.

No Plastic - recently BPA (bisphenol) was added to Environment Canada's list of Toxic Substances for suspected health effects. It's also a very common ingredient in everyday plastic food containers & water bottles. Opt for metal (but not aluminum).

Back to Basics- Try and make your food from scratch, avoiding processed & pre seasoned foods. Groceries will probably be cheaper too!
