We're well aware of the health risks linked to heavy metals, pesticides, and herbicides. However, many traditional household and personal care products harbor less-discussed hazardous ingredients that contribute to the toxic load in our bodies. This accumulation of toxins, termed “body burden,” can potentially disrupt hormones, compromise the immune system, and heighten sensitivity to allergens.
Here are some straightforward yet impactful ways to reduce your family's exposure to toxins this year:
1. Choose Natural Personal Care Products:
The skin, our largest organ, deserves special care. Numerous skincare products contain known endocrine disruptors that can cause hormone disruption. Opt for natural skincare products, carefully reading ingredient lists and steering clear of formulas containing toxic elements. Consider natural fragrance-free soaps. Skin care companies like Aleph Beauty and Antpodes are leaders in this field
2. Bring the Outdoors In:
Indoor plants not only enhance the aesthetic appeal of your home but also absorb and reduce air pollution. Certain plants can alleviate stress, improve sleep quality, and enhance cognitive function. Select plants with larger leaves for quicker air purification, such as aloe vera and ferns. See our blog 15 Indoor Plants that will Purify the Air in Your Home
3. Swap Conventional Cleaning Products:
Conventional cleaning products often contain harmful ingredients that contribute to poor indoor air quality. Replace them with Cleanz, featuring minimal ingredient lists powered by Chamomile and other plant-based ingredients. Our products effectively cleanse your home while ensuring the safety of every household member.
4. Take Your Shoes Off at the Door:
Implementing the simple habit of using separate indoor and outdoor shoes prevents contaminants from being tracked indoors. This practice not only reduces the need for frequent floor cleaning but also reinforces the idea of the home as a sanctuary.
5. Thoughtful Consumption
Mindfully consider what goes into your body.
Even organically grown produce can be exposed to handling, drift spray, mold spores, and dirt. Use Cleanz as a natural fruit and vegetable wash. Featuring mild plant-based surfactants, Cleanz eliminates agricultural pesticides and chemicals, returning your produce to its natural state without an aftertaste— Info about Cleanz as a natural Fruit and Vegetable wash
Let's embark on this year with a commitment to our well-being 2024 by making smart, informed choices that positively impact our whole family.

In this blog we look at this really murky pool of information about microfiber, its Positives, Negatives, the alternatives, and how green those alternatives are.
When I say murky, I really mean really murky. You can find a bunch of info saying how bad microfibre is, written by companies that promote/ sell alternatives, and then when one starts digging into the alternatives, you learn that they are not so squeaky clean either.
