Going toxic free can be as simple as taking your shoes off. By taking your shoes off when you enter your home you leave the chemicals at the door. Ever wonder what all we step on each day? Do you know what exactly is on the bottom of that shoe? Chances are you don’t want to know, but if you are dragging it around your floors you are potentially contaminating your whole family.
Picture this. You stop to fill up your gas tank on your way home from work. You step out and stand where John Doe just dripped gasoline before you pulled up, then you head home and walk through your living room to pick up little Suzy and give her a kiss. Little Suzy sits back down on the floor to pick up her puzzle pieces, and then decides she wants some cheerios and grabs a handful and shoves them in her mouth.
Do you get where I am going with this, little Suzy just put John Doe’s gas in her mouth because you didn’t take off your shoes. Shoes are a host to thousands of toxins including pesticides. When we drag them through the house we drag chemicals along with them. Take Your Shoes Off!
