Surprise Toxins in Your Home

Last week we posted about cleaning green and some of the statistics involved with it. So this week we thought to do a follow up with an infographic that shows you where some of those harmful chemicals come from. They take a look and some of the common household cleaning supplies and uncover the toxins inside. These toxins are not only bad for your health, they also contribute to the depletion  of the ozone later, groundwater pollution, and are harmful to plant and animal life. The people from EcoMom do realize that the house does need to be cleaned, so they offer some more Eco friendly solutions for your daily cleaning needs!
