Small Changes Can Make a BIG Difference!
Buying Local and Organic
Get to know your farmer. More and more pesticides, herbicides, additives, preservatives, growth hormones are being used. Avoid when you can. If any food is eaten in excess…ie peanut butter…buy organic. Pesticides can accumulate in a child´s body. Any fatty foods hold onto pesticides more than other foods and so fat should be trimmed from animal products. Likewise, fruits and veggies with soft skin can allow pesticides to permeate making washing less effective.
Cleaning Supplies: Back to Basics
Back in the mid 20th Century cleaning supplies were made at home and chemicals were not widely used. When Baby boomers came to be, and the number of working woman were then increasing, there was an even more demand for fast and easy cleaning supplies. In truth, cleaning CAN be fast and easy WITHOUT being toxic. Not up to mixing your own cleaners? In response to consumer demand, more natural products are popping on store shelves.

Plastic Containers: Know the Numbers
#’s 2, 4 and 5 are ok…#1 is usually for water bottles…do not use again….#’s 3 and 7 are BAD – they contain BPA (Bisphenol A) known endocrine disruptor. This chemical disturbs the hormonal messaging in our bodies Synthetic xenoestrogens are linked to breast cancer and uterine cancer in women, decreased testosterone levels in men, and are particularly devastating to babies and young children.
