A growing concern among consumers focuses on the products we all bring into our homes. In everyday products like laundry detergent, spray cleaner, and air freshener, you can find a long list of chemicals that cause health and environmental problems. If you want to avoid these chemicals, which can cause respiratory distress, birth defects, air and water pollution, and more, you might not be able to find them on ingredient labels. Extra research is necessary if you want to keep your home healthy and your family safe.
Thankfully, some companies are taking the right approach to safe, sustainable household products. Amway’s first original product came out in 1959. This organic, biodegradable cleaner set the precedent for Amway’s practices in developing and selling its products. Amway makes an effort to offer sustainability and a health-conscious attitude in its products, and consumers appreciate this effort. Three out of four millennials are willing to spend extra money on sustainable products.
Unfortunately, 75 percent of household products contain harsh or harmful chemicals. If you want to make an impact, vote with your dollar. Do your research and choose only safe products.
