Everyday we rise we are given a new day to live as conscientious beings on this planet. We are brushing our teeth, lol, putting on our clothes, eating different foods, tidying our homes, shopping, driving various vehicles, and despite all of these activities that many would definitely consider "luxuries" in society, we still must continue to consider how impactful these activities are to our sanctuary (home), the environment, and our well-being. If we start in our homes to create a more holistically well-balanced environment, it will eventually reflect in our outer environment as well.
I will share with you several natural recipes that will always stand the test of time, are simple, easy to create, cost-effective, zero-waste, and non-toxic so you can continue to reduce your impact for the well-being of yourself, other people, your family, and the environment.
I could talk about all of the chemicals that are in and on products, water, foods, air, etc. Instead, I want you to be accessible to organizations that are dedicated to specifically educating the public on these issues in our environment, see below:
1. The Toxicology Education Foundation (TEF)
is a non-profit charitable 501 (c)(3) foundation whose mission is to enhance public understanding of toxicology through access to objective, science-based information on the safety of chemicals and other agents encountered in daily life.
2. Environmental Working Group
Mission - To empower you with breakthrough research to make informed choices and live a healthy life in a healthy environment.
Enhance public awareness and understanding of fundamental key principles related to chemical hazards in our homes, workplaces, schools, and general environment.
NON-TOXIC NATURAL CLEANING RECIPES
FRUIT AND VEGGIE SOAK SOLUTION
1 gallon of water
Alternate - You can use 1/4 of apple-cider vinegar or 3% Hydrogen Peroxide in a sinkful of water as well:-)
Soak raw fruit and veggies in this solution for 15 mins. This will remove parasites as well as pesticide residue!
