I thought I'd start recommending Safe, Earth-friendly products to complement our effort to keep toxins out of our home, our bodies and our environment.
We don't think about the ingredients in things like dish soap, and dishwasher or laundry detergent, but residues are left on our skin to be absorbed into our cells, or on the surface of our utensils and plates waiting to merge with the food we eat!
Cleaners are full of awful chemicals as you may well be aware, and using them unleashes those chemicals into the air you breathe and coats surfaces. When you think about it, it's obvious you want to avoid that.
The products below are available at - http://www.vitacost.com, or on Amazon. I prefer dealing with Vitacost directly. They often have promotions and carry two Supplement brands I trust.
