Mom’s With A Mission – Reduction of Household Environmental Toxins

Week #13: Fact: The chemicals in institutional cleaning products can cause a wide range of major health problems for children, including respiratory irritation and increased risk of cancer.

Action: If you have children in day care or school, make sure that the facility is doing everything they can to protect your children from harmful toxins, just like you do at home. Ask the facility to evaluate the cleaners they use.

You can help them by pointing them to resources at http://healthychild.org/blog/comments/getting_your_childs_school_or_child_care_center_to_clean_green/  and  http://www.healthyschools.org/documents/green_cleaning_guide.pdf
