It can be so frustrating. As a parent you’ve made adjustments to have a nontoxic, healthy home for your child. But then time for school or daycare comes, and he or she spends several hours a day exposed to any number of toxins, particularly from cleaning products.
But don’t we need clean schools? Of course! And fortunately there are certified green products that can do the job.
Use of toxic cleaning products can make it hard for a child to concentrate and be productive in class. They can harm the central nervous system, and may even be carcinogenic, among other detrimental effects.
The good news is that after major national efforts, 50% of schools in the U.S. have switched to green cleaning. The bad news is, your child may be sitting in one of the other schools.
And since we care about the health of all kids, everywhere, we hope you will take time to see this PDF with recommendations from a leading advocacy group for healthy schools, and spread the word.
