Use non-toxic alternatives to household chemicals

Why should I do this?

Our typical household cleaning needs often don't require those all-too-common toxic chemicals that find their way into our rivers, lakes, oceans and even our bodies. Using effective alternatives made from inexpensive and safe ingredients can save you money and protect the environment.

For more information on why this issue is a problem, see the Troubled Waters information on this website.

How can I do this?

Check out World Watch’s Good Stuff site Off-site Link for recipes and cleaning tips with non-toxic products.
