Why Natural Homes use Green products? What’s all the hype about greening your home? So many times people think that having a natural home means eating Organic foods, using filtered water, using a re-usable shopping bags and recycling. That is only part of the process. Many well intended consumers fall into the greenwashing trap and think that because a company uses gimmicky labels they are Green products. That’s usually not the case. Educate yourself on product ingredients so you will know a toxic product using greenwashing, and you can make educated decisions about the products you bring into your home for your family. Natural homes encompass so much more than eating healthy, re-using and recycling. Natural homes use true green products such as organic mattresses, natural bedding, non-toxic drinking bottles and avoid using products with toxic chemicals in their bath and body products, kitchen products or pet beds that can contaminate the home. The air we breathe in our home can be the most toxic air we breathe. Our home contains many toxins we are not aware of such as, flooring, carpet, drapes, furniture and paint. Unless you build a new all certified Green home, you have toxins in your home that can’t be avoided. These products off gas continually and are trapped inside your home. Even with air filters, it might not completely clean the air of these toxins. Green parents know that indoor air quality is important.
