What do baking soda, olive oil, honey, apple cider vinegar, and rubbing alcohol have to do with Earth Day? They each have many uses that can help you reduce or even eliminate toxic chemicals from your home and the environment. Some 80,000 chemicals are found in every day products, most of which have only been in use since World War II. It’s a stunning figure when you look at the increase in the number of chemicals with known health risks and the dramatic rise of many cancers since then. But there is hope. In honor of Earth Day, try using some of these simple ingredients from your kitchen to show your support in reducing the outpour of toxins into the environment.
