What goes around, comes around…

According to the New York Times, tens of thousands of chemicals in use have never been tested for safety. A good many of these are in our homes. But here’s the good news. You can detox your home. It’s simpler, and more affordable, than you might think. The following blogs, written by leading experts, are here to help. Here’s some of what you’ll learn about.

  • Greener cleaning
  • Toxic-free consumer products
  • Environmental health
  • Healthy homes
  • And more!

But first, a big thanks to science communicator, Ben Young Landis, for his invaluable writing advice. Check out Better Know a Fish, Ben’s highly engaging blog about underwater species.

Of course, the fewer chemicals we use, the fewer chemicals end up in our waterways, and in the fish we eat.

In other words, what goes around, comes around.
