Have you ever noticed how some people get offended when we are disabled by, or get sick from something in the products they’ve used?
What’s up with that?
What about those who feign disbelief that we could be harmed by something they are using? Or that they could be using something that is harmful?
While I am not up to delving into the psychological and emotional intricacies of those responses here, or how industry pays big money to create them, I did come up with a few simple images with variations of the following text:
It’s not you! It’s not personal! It’s the chemicals!
Fragrances, personal care, and laundry products
contain toxic chemicals that make it impossible
for some people to be around those who use them.
While fragrances, personal care, cleaning, and laundry products aren’t the only sources of indoor and outdoor air pollution that can be disabling and cause other adverse health effects, they are one of the easiest ones to address and eliminate.
Be fragrance-free. It’s good for you. It’s good for me.
For more information about the harmful ingredients allowed in everyday products and materials, and to learn what you can do about it, see some of the links in the side-bar or other posts on this site and elsewhere.
Corporations (and others) should not be allowed to profit from making and selling products that harm people and the environment when used as directed.
Let’s all do what we can to nurture health and well-being for one and all!
