April 22 is Earth Day (if you don’t already have it on your calendar). This day was set aside to raise awareness of protecting the Earth. But one day a year is not enough – protecting the environment is important every day. We put together some seamless ways to make every day Earth Day by making simple swaps in your life. They won’t break the bank, won’t make you overly “crunchy” and won’t take up too much time to implement. They’re just smart, easy ways to protect the planet for future generations. And they all have the added bonus of saving you some money!
ensuring that your family is safe and healthy, you protect the environment from toxic pollutants and chemical contaminants. Eliminating chemical cleaners keeps the quality of indoor air cleaner (which is estimated to be 3-5 times more contaminated than outdoor air). This reduces the number of chemicals polluting the environment. Contamination of indoor air also has the potential to contaminate outdoor air. These contaminants are easily released into the atmosphere “contribut[ing] to smog formation in outdoor air” and “released to the environment during normal use through evaporation of volatile components and rinsing down the drain of residual product from cleaned surfaces, sponges, etc.” (EPA)
