Safe Cleaning Products

The Issue:
Certain chemicals in cleaning products have been linked to fertility problems, birth defects, increased risk of breast cancer, asthma and respiratory disorders, and hormone disruption. What’s more, there is no federal law requiring cleaning product companies to list all the ingredients in their products on the label.  Which means companies can keep toxic chemicals a secret from you.

The bottom line: Products you clean your home with shouldn’t contain toxic ingredients in the first place.
