If you remember watching Batman 1989, the Joker poisons random products in Gotham City. Throughout the movie, people give up makeup, shaving great, shampoo in order to stay alive.

Our real products aren’t poisoned, but it would benefit you to do a little research about their ingredients.

Check The Products You Use

Tide is a pretty common brand to have in your laundry room.

For this example, let’s say that you use Tide 2X Ultra Pure Essentials Liquid Detergent with Baking Soda, White Lilac.

If you were to cross reference this product with the EWG database, you will see that they give it a failing grade.

When you scroll to the bottom of the product page you will see that their grades are based on what ingredients the manufacterer uses and the health impact of those ingredients.

What is EWG

EWG.org is short for the Environmental Working Group, a non-profit that works to educate you about the products you use.

The Environmental Working Group’s mission is to empower people to live healthier lives in a healthier environment. With breakthrough research and education, we drive consumer choice and civic action.
