I am extremely excited about April’s “Chemical Elimination” Challenge–Natural CLEANING!
In preparation for the blog post, I have been testing a variety of options in our own home, and I simply cannot wait until April before I give a brief plug for Norwex:-)
In my Chemical Elimination blog post, I will be more thorough, but let me just give you a quick overview of Norwex.
From their website:
“Norwex is committed to radically reducing the use of chemicals in personal care and cleaning to promote health. More than ever we feel the need to emphasize the positive environmental impact of reducing chemical use.”
“In the last 50 years more than 80,000 new chemicals have been produced and introduced into the environment. “Ecology” refers to the way human beings, animals, and other life forms and nature interact and influence each other.
The ecological approach considers that all living species and nature are interdependent, and that there are limitations to what nature can absorb in terms of human activities such as pollution. Change something here, and the consequences will pop up there. Radical change — manmade or otherwise — may overwhelm the delicate balance in the environment, resulting in unintended and dramatic negative change.
We must find a way to provide for the needs of the present, without sacrificing the ability of future generations to provide for their needs. Contributing to the change by becoming part of the Norwex family will result in an improvement in quality of life.
“We strive to improve quality of life rather than standard of living.”
Behind this aim lies the value and beauty of life itself, both for us, and other life forms.
From a health point of view, it is equally important to radically reduce the use of household chemicals. Research and information on the health effects of chemicals has not kept pace with their development and use. “Most of the chemicals that people are exposed to everyday have never been assessed for their impact on human health.”
The harm chemicals have on humans is extensive. Chemicals found in the average home are linked to many serious diseases such as allergies, birth defects, cancer, and psychological abnormalities. Many today believe that the extensive use of chemicals indoors contributes to “modern” diseases such as asthma and allergies.”
Norwex allows you to clean and disinfect your entire home with the use of simply a microfiber cloth and water! Check out their website for their full line of products and how this amazing technology works! You really have to see it to believe it.
