I ran into an adorable wool suit dress that I just had to have. I checked out the tag and was terribly disappointed to run into those dreaded three words: DRY CLEAN ONLY. I wondered, "how toxic is that anyway?"
It isn’t easy to make safe and healthy choices with plastic. The numbers included on the labeling only identifies the main resin in a package for food. There may be any amount of unnamed chemicals added to resins to make plastic products. Furthermore, there is a lot that is not known or fully tested about each resin.
Greener cleaners, pesticides alternatives and non-toxic body care, Metro's Healthy Homes booth is a great way for Master Recyclers talk about health and sustainability. Each year we join in on Metro's campaign and staff booths at county fairs, food harvests, homebuyers fairs and more. This year, (like many in the past) the person hired to coordinate was a Master Recycler. Nancy Nordman did an amazing job organizing, training and working alongside other Master Recyclers. Now she would like to thank those of you who joined in this year
