I am doing a ‘Spring Cleaning’ Challenge or switch to safer product series for the next three months with my ‘oily group’. I thought of sharing that here as well.
I am on a mission to de-clutter my home. And, I have been going at it 1/4th corner at a time. So much more doable.
This also gave me the idea of doing the DITCH AND SWITCH SPRING CLEANING CHALLENGE. It can be overwhelming to think about changing household products in your home. This challenge ALLOWS you to do it bit by bit and save money in the process by being on Essential Rewards…..
You should all have gotten a letter by now regarding this…Please follow the instructions on how to qualify..( for my oily team)
This challenge should actually be called “Switch to Safer Challenge” as my friend Angela puts it. Because that is what this is – switching over to safer products.
Why is using ‘cleaner, safer’ household products important?
Did you know that the EPA reported that toxic chemicals in household cleaners are three times more likely to cause cancer than air pollution!! So scary. ⠀⠀
But knowledge is power and in this day and age we have loads of tools to help us recognize what is safe or toxic. You do not need to be a scientist and research every ingredient, just do some research. The Think Dirty app is useful. This app is perfect for busy people like us! It helps you to be aware of the ingredients in your everyday products, it breaks your ingredients down into 3 sections.
First: the top rated carcinogenic ingredients
Second: ingredients that negatively affect developmental & reproductive toxicity
Third: ingredients that cause allergies & auto-immune responses
And scores the product according to how toxic it is. 0-2 for neutral, 3-6 for half n’half and 7+ for dirty.
Over the course of these next three months, we will show you how easy it is to start replacing your household products with ‘cleaner’ ones from Young Living
This Ditch and Switch Extravaganza will leave your home TOXIN FREE ( deep sigh!!!……Is there anything better than that)
