Is your home healthy?
How healthy is your home? On the surface, it’s a simple question. If your home is clean and your kitchen is stocked with healthy foods, then you have a healthy home, right? Not necessarily. Even a clean, attractive home can be filled with dangerous chemicals and pollutants, and many people are completely unaware of what they need to eliminate to keep their families healthy. This “Healthier Kid Friendly Home” infographic does a great job simplifying the complex task of getting rid of dangerous pollutants.
For instance, most people are only somewhat aware of the risks of BPA plastics, which can cause brain and behavior issues in young children. Even if they are aware, they have no idea which plastic items to get rid of and which ones to keep. The infographic shows you how to read the recycling symbol on your plastics to decide whether they’re safe or not.
This graphic also offers a list of home cleaning ingredients to avoid and a list of organic alternatives to keep on hand instead. To keep indoor air fresh and clean, focus on maintaining your HVAC system properly instead of spraying chemicals in the air. You might be surprised to learn that anti-bacterial or fragranced soaps are unhealthy, too. Teach your kids how to wash their hands properly and you won’t need those extra ingredients.
