Toxic chemicals in consumer products pose unnecessary and avoidable health hazards to consumers, communities, and our environment. Some of the most dangerous chemicals can be found frequently in your everyday life. The chemicals in everything from your shampoo and cleaning products to your food and drinking water have been found to cause many illnesses and health issues, including cancer. According to the EPA, less than 1% of chemicals used in consumer products have received thorough testing for human safety.
So, why do companies continue to put these toxins into our products even though they are hazardous?
The answer is simple: consumers continue to buy them.
Consumers prefer fresh perfumed scents, such as Hawaiian Breeze, Tropical Rain, Coconut, Fresh Forest and Vanilla Bean. They want luscious lathering soaps and shampoos and want it in bulk from Costco and want it to last a year or longer without going bad. Long-lasting and shelf-stable products come with a price, and that price is the laundry list of toxic ingredients in these products.
Consumers drive demand, resulting in companies manufacturing products that meet the market's needs. It's only in recent years with the emergence of auto-immune diseases (a disorder or condition in which your immune system mistakenly attacks your body. The immune system normally guards against germs like bacteria and viruses. There is no known cause of autoimmune disorders) that consumers began to question what's in our household products.
Still, it's not enough to avoid buying products that include these toxic chemicals. It's the consumers' responsibility to demand that companies stop using chemicals that are known to be harmful. The status quo has meant that companies can sell and use toxic chemicals without fully understanding the health impacts of those choices. It is up to us to reverse this because there are non-toxic alternative options that are equally as effective at cleaning, disinfecting and purifying our environments.
