If you are expecting this site to show a person whose house is spotless, with homemade meals and desert made from scratch on the table every night, the laundry always caught up, my kid always acting perfect and handmade gifts given for every holiday, then you’ve landed on the wrong site.

If you are NOT like the person mentioned above and you want to come hang out with someone who isn’t a Supermom either, then you’ve come to the right place.

April 2012 Newsletter

Welcome to our Celebrating Earth Day April 2012 Newsletter!

Shaklee has always celebrated Earth Day everyday and we are always excited to share how much the Environment means to us.

Home should be the safest, healthiest place in the whole world. But, today’s insulated air-tight homes are filled with chemicals that have never been tested for human toxicity - in the air, the walls, carpets, and in the household cleaners, which can carry some pretty scary warning labels.

Below is some information on how cleaning products affect you, your children and your environment. See how these products affect you, what the EPA and what pediatricians have to say.

  •     81,000 chemicals have been registered with the EPA in the past 30 years and fewer    than  20% have been tested for toxicity.
  •     90% of all poison exposures occur in the home.
  •     90% of our time is spent indoors. EPA reports that air pollution is up to 5 times higher    inside than outside.
  •     EPA studies have shown that elevated concentration of household chemicals persist in    the air. Long term exposure to chemicals inside our homes may be harmful to us and our    families.
  •     One out of every 13 children have asthma.
  •     Common household cleaners give off fumes that can increase the risk of children   developing asthma.
  •     The average U.S. household generates more than 20 pounds of hazardous waste each year.

What’s in your cleaners?

Sodium Hydroxide – Inhalation is immediately irritating to the respiratory tract. Contact can cause severe damage to the eyes, skin, mouth and throat. Can cause liver and kidney damage.

May be found in:

·         Dishwashing liquids
·         Laundry products
·         Oven cleaners
·         Scouring cleansers
·         Tub & tile cleaners

Hydrochloric Acid – Can cause severe damage to the skin. Can be harmful to health if inhaled. Can be fatal if swallowed.

May be found in:

·         Odor eliminators
·         Toilet bowl cleaners

Butyl Cellosolve – Can cause irritation and tissue damage from inhalation. A person who spends 15 minutes cleaning scale off shower walls could inhale three times the acute exposure limit.

May be found in:

·         All purpose cleaners
·         Cleaning wipes
·         Degreasers
·         Floor polish
·         Rug shampoos
·         Toilet bowl cleaners
·         Tub & tile cleaners
·         Window cleaners

“We are conducting a vast toxicologic experiment in our society, in which our children and our children’s children are the experimental subject.”
