Nontoxic, Natural, & Earthwise by Debra Lynn Dadd

Book Review

How to Protect Yourself and Your Family from Harmful Products and Live in Harmony with the Earth.

I purchased this book in a attempt to know which products are harmful and what products I could use to replace the toxic products in my home. I have been very pleased with the information this book provides. It gives a many safe choices for each product and lots of homemade alternatives as well.

Topics covered in the book are as follows: air and water, energy and food, lawn and garden, cleaning products, household pest control and personal care, textiles and petcare, babies and children, office and art supplies, buildings and furnishings, and even garbage.

This book is a treasure trove of ways to help change your home and your health in a big positive way. It is easy to understand and a big help to those who are interested in changing direction as far as helping reduce garbage and cleaning up the enviroment.

Many times we spread the word and advice people, but they don't know what steps to take other than recycling and so they put up a front of joking or fighting about it just because they are too embarrassed to admit it they don't know. I have given copies of this book out to people who were interested, but unsure of what products were considered safe and how to change their purchasing habits.

    I agree. Once we know, it becomes much easier. I've heard a lot of people complain mostly about clothing. That one isn't easy for most because all they know about is how to avoid things that are made in China, and even then there are tricks that corporations use to make you believe they are safe. There are guides that you can receive online, too, that are small and simple - Greenpeace has small, pocket-version guides for many things like food, seafood, and other things, and you can get them for free. This way, if you want to save money (I don't know if this is an issue for you) just get them to mail them to your friends. Anyhow, I voted! Don't forget to stop by my new post!

      Thanks for the tip about greenpeace and I will check it out. Yes, money is a problem I live on a small disability check and have to be very fugal in what I do. I have given the book to friends at Christmas, and they were happy to have something to use as a guide.

        Have you written any blogs on what corporations to avoid both in food items and clothing. It would be a big help. :)

    I have a few. Here's one, which is very recent: Committing to Detox I will ask you to go through my articles because there are others that give you information. For example, always choose organic or non-gmo tofu and soy milk. There are many more like that, but I can't remember them all off the top of my head.
