Dirty Cleaning

We live a miserably interesting time as far as our environment is concerned!
  
Cleaning used to be just that: cleaning. Making things cleaner than they were, and therefore healthier. We know that dirtiness brings about illness, of both body and mind. If everyone would just wash their hands, many diseases would be eliminated. That’s how connected health and cleanliness are. But not any more!

I was on a quick shopping trip in Target, when I passed by the cleaning supplies section. I saw hundreds of small and big plastic bottles aligned together, containing substances that supposedly make our life cleaner and healthier. A wave of horror crossed my mind as I looked at those bottles!  

 

People will buy them, thousands of them (people and bottles!). How much of this plastic will be recycled? You know. Not the majority. Some will indeed be recycled by Earth conscious people, but many thousand plastic bottles will end up in landfills, contributing to the ever increasing causes of pollution and disease. Aren’t we supposed to clean for health, not for pollution?!   

Now consider what those bottles really contain. Many of the cleaning substances actually contain toxic chemicals. Here’s another serving of pollution and disease, besides the plastic containers that will go to waste. Not only the toxic chemicals will pollute our homes and our bodies, but they will possibly leak into water and plants in their long journey once they leave our homes. How the heck did we end up in this miserable situation? A few evil ingredients: greed, shortsightedness, and laziness, and some well-meaning ignorance as well.   

What we can do? Simple. We buy eco-friendly products, toxic free. Then we recycle any containers and packaging, paper or plastic. Even better, we buy bulk products that are not contained in containers! We make use of the plenty of tips available on how to make some of the cleaning substances at home, using all natural ingredients. We have to start there, with ourselves and our homes. Then we have to move on to a bigger scale, learning how to push our governments to impose health and far-sighted policies on businesses and people. We can’t just rely on the Earth and Health conscious individuals if we want change to happen in the current century!

    I think overall, we are criminals when it comes to the environment
