We are by no means a ‘perfect’ family when it comes to the products we use within our home. I’m trying to get better at reading labels and being more mindful of the chemicals I use to wash our clothes and clean our home. Just a few small changes in my daily life, could make a huge impact in the life of my family.
Last week, I had quite the eye opening opportunity….
I had the opportunity to sit-in on a virtual baby shower with with Seventh Generation, Healthy Baby Healthy Home, Stonyfield Yogurt and The Motherhood. I was fascinated by the statistics they shared with us…
- There are more than 80,000 chemicals registered for use in the U.S., but comprehensive pre-market safety testing of these chemicals is not required under any federal law.
- In the European Union (EU), 1,328 chemicals have been banned for use in personal care products. In the U.S., only 11 chemicals have been banned or restricted by the FDA.
- The primary U.S. law that regulates chemicals in everyday products hasn’t been updated in more than 35 years.
