Ditch the Bleach!

Ditch the Bleach!



Wondering why you should ditch the bleach in your laundry?
One word….Dioxins ☠️

Have you ever heard of them? They are one of the most toxic chemicals known to our planet.

Without giving you a boring chemistry lesson…”Dioxins are a group of chemically related compounds that are persistent environmental pollutants”, and they are a by-product of manufacturing bleach.

Do dioxins cause cancer?

YES. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, dioxins are a “carcinogen in animals. Target organs include the liver, thyroid, lung, skin and soft tissues.
Scary AF, right?
And, it is, because dioxins are found in our food. More than 90% of human exposure is through food. It’s mostly found in our meat, dairy, fish, and shellfish.

Dioxins are a by-product of manufacturing bleach

So, bleach is caustic and corrosive. But, the real problem is how it’s made. Bleach is in or contributes to the manufacturing of about 15,000 products. It’s a big deal. So, let’s stop using it. 🛑
