Our Global Challenge:
We realized early on that household pollutants negatively impact our health and our environment. Most of the chemicals in products in our homes have never been assessed for their impact on human health. Indoor air pollution is one of the top five highest ranking environmental health problems in America with chemical levels up to 70 times higher than outside. Research and information on the health effects of manufactured chemicals has not kept pace with their development and use.
- In the last 50 years, the global production and use of manufactured chemicals has increased substantially. More than 80,000 new chemicals have been created.
- Indoor air pollution is one of the top five highest-ranking environmental health problems in America.
- Evidence shows homes have chemical levels up to 70 times higher than outside.
- Most of the chemicals that people are exposed to every day have never been assessed for their impact on human health.
- Parabens utilized in personal care for decades have been shown to have potential harmful effects.
What we do know is the harm chemicals have on humans is extensive. Most concerning are the growing links to chemicals that surround us in everyday life. They are linked to serious diseases such as birth defects, cancer and psychological abnormalities. Many today believe the extensive use of chemicals indoors contributes to many of our ‘modern’ diseases such as allergies and asthma.
