Then, as long as you are thinking about it, look at the chemicals you use as you are grooming your house and your yard. Consider that if something is banned in California, maybe there’s a good reason not to use it. Think about all of the findings about the problems caused by the active ingredient in RoundUp. All too often we do not even know the ingredients contained in our products, let alone whether or not they are potentially harmful.
For many things there are better, less toxic or non-toxic answers – isn’t it worth the research to figure it out? Or, you can always Ask Aunt Wendy. The cost of using these toxins on yourself, in your house, and in your yard could be your health or your family's health. Not to be all gloom and doom, the good news is the increasing awareness of these chemicals and their dangers and the number of non-toxic options that are available to you. So go ahead, try something new – go non-toxic!
