Commuting reduces toxins produced by motor vehicles. There are many options when it comes to commuting. You can take a bus or start a care pool. Some companies even pay for commuting by providing vehicles and other incentives. Pretty cool! Make sure to talk with your employer about potential incentives and options. And who doesn’t love the nice carpool lane when traffic hits.
Or you could even bike or walk to work which also save the earth from harmful toxins produced by vehicles.

Water evaporates and when that water is exposed to harmful chemicals it be leached into the air. While that laundry detergent may be fine for your clothes it might not be so good for your lungs. There are a ton of options when it comes to buying clean products. Some of my favorites are the Honest Company, Melaleuca, Mrs. Meyer’s.

If you choose to use products with harsh chemicals or if you use batteries make sure to dispose of them correctly. Directions are often on the packaging. You can always contact the manufacture for more information. There are using local drop of sites that accept harsh chemicals like paints as well as batteries.
