Breast Cancer & the Non-Toxic Revolution:

Please click to watch this 2 minute video I found. See how you can easily CHOOSE to reduce &/or eliminate your 365 days per year exposure to toxic synthetic chemicals found in household products, as well as other environmental & lifestyle choices, which is thought to be the leading cause of Breast Cancer, asthma, other breathing problems, & so many more dis-eases.

My mother-in-law is a Breast Cancer survivor. I have been following a green path for nearly 12 year, if not more, since becoming a mother. This video explains, exactly, why I joined with OnlyGreen (closed in June 2012) shortly after finding & researching their products & ingredients. They are 100% Natural, Safe, Eco Friendly, & Biodegradable. Free from synthetics, fragrances, dyes, and hormone disrupting ingredients.  I will also admit that I signed up purely to get a discount and shop from home, but it didn’t take long to start making green by going green.

Join the non-toxic revolution!

I would like to thank www.GoodGirlGoneGreen.com for her post. Check out her website. Originally, I found a post she made about “No-Pooing” (eliminating shampoo) & have been hooked on her posts since. Enjoy!

In light of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I wanted to remind you about OG’s partnership with the Canadian Breast Cancer Support Fund (OG is no longer in business) to provide a financial subsidy for breast cancer patients who cannot afford to purchase a wig.

Soy wax candles are completely non-toxic, unlike paraffin wax based candles which emit 11 toxins according to the American Lung Association, 2 of which are known carcinogens. Our candles are made with 100% non-GMO soy and have a burning time of more than 40 hours.

Fragrance Oils vs Essential Oils in Products

The main issue with synthetic fragrances is the mystery behind what exactly they are. The synthetic fragrances used in cosmetics can have as many as 200 ingredients. There is no way to know what the chemicals are, since on the label it will simply read “fragrance.” Some problems caused by these chemicals include headaches, dizziness, rash, hyperpigmentation, violent coughing, vomiting, skin irritation, etc.

Although these fragrances are usually only added in very small amounts, when used in personal care products, they are applied directly to the consumer’s skin.

“Fragrance is considered a trade secret, so companies don’t have to tell us what’s in it – often dozens or even hundreds of synthetic chemical compounds. Almost half the products in Skin Deep contain the generic term “fragrance,” from shampoos and deodorants to lotions and shaving creams. Even “unscented” products may contain masking fragrances, which are chemicals used to cover up the odor of other chemicals.” (www.safecosmetics.org).

Choose personal care items that are scented using pure extracts and essential oils like all of the ForeveGreen House & Home products as well as a complete line of over 100 pure and blended TRUessence essential oils.
