how to live "non-toxic" in a "toxic world"

Updated: May 18, 2023

Living a non-toxic life in today's day and age can seem like an overwhelming task. We are bombarded with ads and products that claim to make our lives easier and better, but in reality, many of these products contain harmful chemicals that can have detrimental effects on our health. By making small changes in our daily habits, we can live a more non-toxic life. In this blog, we will discuss different ways to be non-toxic in a toxic world, including food, cosmetics, clothing, and plastic products.

One of the easiest ways to be non-toxic is to be mindful of the food we eat. Eating whole foods that are organic and non-GMO eliminates the harmful chemicals that are often found in processed foods. Choose fruits and vegetables that are in season and locally grown whenever possible. Eating meat and dairy that are free from antibiotics and hormones can also reduce the amount of toxins we consume.

Cosmetics are another area where harmful chemicals are often found. Switching to natural and organic skincare and makeup products can have a huge impact on reducing the amount of toxins we are exposed to on a daily basis. Look for products that are free from parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. Reading labels and researching the ingredients in our cosmetics can help us make informed decisions about what products to use.

Many cleaning products contain harsh chemicals that can be harmful to our health. To reduce your exposure to toxins, opt for natural cleaning products or make your own using simple, non-toxic ingredients such as vinegar, baking soda, and lemon juice. Be sure to read labels carefully when choosing cleaning products and avoid products that contain toxic chemicals such as ammonia and chlorine bleach.

Clothing is an often-overlooked area where toxins can be found. Synthetic fabrics like polyester and nylon release harmful chemicals when washed and can be harmful to our skin. Choosing natural fibers like cotton, linen, and wool is a more sustainable and non-toxic option. Buying secondhand clothing is also a great way to reduce the impact of clothing production on the environment.

Lastly, plastic products are everywhere in our daily lives, but they have harmful effects on our health and the environment. Choosing reusable products like water bottles, bags, and containers can reduce the amount of plastic waste in landfills and oceans. When choosing plastic products, look for products labeled as BPA-free and recycle whenever possible.

Living a non-toxic life can seem like a daunting task, but by making small changes in our daily habits, we can make a big difference in our health and the health of the planet. By choosing natural and organic products, being mindful of the food we eat, and reducing our use of plastic, we can create a non-toxic environment in which to thrive. Let's work towards a world that prioritizes health and sustainability.
