Get ready to start your New Year right by making a resolution to go toxic free!
Many of us vow to eat healthier in the coming year, but our suggestion here at Toxic-Free Kids is not just to eat healthy but to live healthy. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the many changes you may feel you need to make, not to worry! As you embark on this new year, we encourage you to simply choose ONE toxic-free commitment for each month that will make a difference for you and your family. If you can handle more than one, great! But even one a month can begin to make a real difference.
As you begin your transformation into a more toxic-free lifestyle, you may actually be surprised how easy it is. Good, healthy products abound; you just have to do some research on which ones to choose. While it will require some time on your part to determine the best ones for you, after eliminating the unhealthy products and practices and incorporating the better ones into your home and life, you will absolutely feel a difference. It’s truly a gift you’ll give to your entire family.
When shopping for your greener, smarter choices, be sure to include your children in the process. As you involve them, they’ll gain knowledge that will not only educate them, but inspire them to make healthy decisions as they grow up. Keep in mind that it’s never too late to make a change, and it’s never too early to teach our children what being healthy means in every part of their lives.
If you need some ideas for your “change-one-a-month” resolution of going toxin free, here are few to get you started:
- Switch out a cleaning agent you use in your kitchen.
- Find a new, non-toxic bathroom cleaner.
- Replace a Teflon-coated pan with a healthier, cast iron pan.
- Use natural laundry detergent.
- Avoid home sprays and scents that have chemicals.
- Stop wearing shoes in the house—what you track in from outside doesn’t belong in your carpet or the floors where your children play!
