Did you know?

•   The indoor air pollution in your home is typically two to five times worse than outdoor air pollution, and indoor air quality is one of the EPA’s top five environmental risks to public health. What causes indoor air pollution? Sources include biological contaminants such as mold and pollen, tobacco smoke, gases including radon and carbon monoxide, some materials used in the construction of your home, and household cleaning products.

•   Common household cleaning products include a vast array of chemicals, most of which have not been tested for environmental or health effects on humans. In more than 30 years the EPA has only required testing of 200 of over 62,000 chemicals and are partially regulating only five. The rest have never been fully assessed. Manufactures of household cleaning products are not required to fully disclose all of the ingredients in their cleaners, adding to the secrecy behind the bottle.
