Did you know there is no regulation around what information can be on a product label? If the label says “Green”, ‘Natural” or “Non-Toxic” it must be true, right? WRONG! Unfortunately we can’t trust a label. That is prime real estate for a company to catch your eye and hope you don’t actually check ingredients that are in the product. I am so angry about this because we as consumers are being scammed. These companies are putting harmful ingredients into our cleaning and personal care products that are linked to asthma, allergies, cancer, birth defects, fertility issues and lung problems just to name a few.
How many of you were like me and thought that the Method brand sold at Target was a safe ‘green’ product? I used it for a long time until I really started to learn more about what’s beyond a label. No way do I use these anymore!

I just keep repeating that to myself over and over and have a mission to help others understand this and start voting with where they spend their money. I am tired of people being so sick when it’s simple things that we can all change in our daily lives. You don’t have to be a health nut and eat only fruit and vegetables and workout an hour a day to achieve better health. I would love to share what I’ve done in my house for my family with our motto of Changing4Better.
