Our mission- To make the home a healthier place to raise your family.

It’s Earth Day! are you ready for a challenge?

What are you doing to make sure that every day is Earth day?

Earth-Day-We-do-not-inherit-the-earth-from-our-ancestors

According to EarthDay.org “Earth Day Network’s year-round mission is to broaden, diversify and activate the environmental movement worldwide, through a combination of education, public policy, and consumer campaigns.”

Well at Healthy Home our campaigns are simple, “Making your home a healthier place to raise a family!”, “Join a Cause, start a movement”, and “Danger products in your home may contain toxic chemicals,”, all these lead to one thing- make changes in your home to create a better environment for yourself, your family, your friends and your pets.  Not only do replacing products who disrupt our ability to reproduce, who disrupt our children’s ability to develop properly, who disrupt our hormones and send us into a tailspin, who cause rashes, respiratory issues, among others, help you both physically and even financially (as healthier products means not sinking as many dollars at the doctor), it also helps the environment.

There are less harmful chemicals floating around wreaking havoc on our wildlife, causing male frogs to turn into female frogs, or ending up in our water supply ensuring everyone gets a share of the chemical whether the use it or not.  I personally dream of a day where Earth Day does not have a clean up the earth (trash pickup) component to it because every human is responsible enough for themselves and kind enough to take responsibility for others to make it their job to pick up that piece of trash off the sidewalk or the plastic bottle that just washed up on the beach and toss it or recycle it.  I love Disney in many ways, but one thing I love dearly is the fact that when all 58,000 “Cast Members”, as they are called, are gathered together and they are asked how many people work in the Custodian department? all 58,000 answer “I do”.  This is a reflection of the pride and ownership they take in their work, but the most peculiar thing is that they carry this philosophy into their daily lives outside the park.  Chew on that!

Whether you are into this “green” movement or not, it is worth checking out, as the saying above says “we do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children” and don’t we want to leave it in better shape than we found it for them?  Let us make a change, let us stop polluting our bodies, the food supply and the earth.  Look for sustainable alternatives, replacement products that are certified ToxicFree, EcoCert, USDA Organic, Cruelty Free, Fair Trade, Rainforest Alliance Certified, and so on, thus ensuring you are dealing with a company who cares about YOU and the earth.

Kraft recalls 242,000 cases of macaroni & cheese due to possible metal pieces

Perla and Dom:

More reasons not to purchase junk… And to think they were just getting the food dye controversy… Say no to junk food!

Originally posted on fox4kc.com:

NORTHFIELD, Ill., — Kraft is voluntarily recalling approximately 242,000 cases of the Original flavor of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Dinners due to the possibility that some boxes may contain small pieces of metal.

The recall only impacts select code dates and manufacturing codes. The recalled product is limited to the 7.25-oz. size of the original flavor of boxed dinner with the “Best When Used By” dates of September 18, 2015 through October 11, 2015, and the code “C2″ directly below the date on each box.

Some of the products were sold in multi-pack units that have a range of different code dates and manufacturing codes on the external packaging (box or shrink-wrap), depending on the package configuration, the company said in a news release.

The affected dates of this product were sold in these four configurations:

  • 7.25 oz. box, Original flavor

  • 3-pack box of those 7.25 oz. boxes, Original flavor

  • 4-pack  shrink-wrap of…

Undercover Additives: What’s Hiding in Your Foods?

image

We’ve all heard the saying, “you are what you eat.” But, do you really know what is in the foods you’re eating? With more than 10,000 additives in the foods we consume as a nation (many of which are banned in other parts of the world), it’s hard to know which additives are safe and which you should avoid.

We’re listing some of the most common additives you should ditch to help equip you and your family on your journey to becoming ToxicFree®.

Nitrates and Nitrites
Commonly Found In: cured meats, drinking water

You Should Know: Environmental Protection Agency refers to nitrates and nitrites as “chemicals used in fertilizers, in rodenticides (to kill rodents), and as food preservatives.” Although Nitrates are a normal part of the diet and can be naturally found in fruits and vegetables, sodium nitrate and potassium nitrite are added to cured meat to preserve its color, prevent fats from going rancid, and stop bacteria from growing.

According to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, exposure to environmental nitrates and nitrites during pregnancy may increase the risk of pregnancy complications such as anemia, premature labor or preeclampsia. Excessive nitrate or nitrite exposure can result in acute acquired methemoglobinemia, a serious health condition.

To rid your diet of nitrates and nitrites, eat as many fresh-cooked meats as possible and read the labels of foods to make sure they do not contain these chemicals.

Artificial Dyes
Commonly Found In: candy, cereal, soda, ice cream, pudding, cakes, cookies, snacks and many other processed foods

You Should Know: On the ToxicFree® Blog, Healthy Home co-founder Brittany Glynn talks about the dangers of artificial dyes including FD&C Red #40 and Yellow #5 and #6. According to a study by The Center for Science in The Public Interest, common food dyes pose risks such as hyperactivity in children and allergies.

Many of the foods that contain these dyes are intentionally marketed toward kids, which can put our children at a greater risk for developing the harmful side effects associated with artificial dye. Avoiding “junk food” is a good way to remove artificial dyes from your family’s diet. Recently, Kraft made an announcement about removing artificial dyes from some of their mac and cheese products.

Potassium Bromate
Commonly Found In: bread, crackers, chips

You Should Know: Potassium bromate is illegal in the European Union, Canada, Brazil, China and elsewhere because it is a known carcinogen in rats.  Even though it has been banned all over the world, it is still widely used in the U.S. in breads, chips and other baked snacks to help dough rise while baking. Though it’s found in some foods, potassium bromate isn’t a necessary chemical. Make sure to check labels to find foods that don’t contain this chemical.

BHA and BHT
Commonly Found In: lard, butter, cereal, instant mashed potatoes, beer, potato chips, baked goods, dessert mixes, chewing gum and other foods

You Should Know: Butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) is used as a food preservative as well as in food packaging, animal feed, cosmetics, rubber and petroleum products, and some medicines. It is also used as an antioxidant to preserve foods and keep them “fresh” longer.

Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), the chemical cousin to BHA, has the same use. The two compounds are commonly used in conjunction.

The Center for Science in the Public Interest lists BHA as a chemical to avoid and states it is “unsafe in amounts consumed or is very poorly tested and not worth any risk,” and BHT as a chemical you should consume with caution because it “may pose a risk and needs to be better tested. Try to avoid.”

It may seem almost impossible to escape the over 10,000 additives that are in our foods, but you can do your part to remove the most dangerous chemicals. To find ways to avoid ingesting these additives, visit the Environmental Working Group’s Food Scores Database to help you and your family navigate these undercover additives.

The Toxic Truth™ Campaign: Kick Toxins to the Curb!

image

The Healthy Home Company is committed to fulfilling our mission of making the home a healthier place by ridding homes of the products and chemicals that are harming families. That’s why we’re kicking off the New Year with the Toxic Truth™ Campaign, a collection of interactive tools and challenges, research, and information about toxic chemicals designed to help people decipher the dangers found in the products they use every day.

Take The Toxic Test™
As a nation, we believe that personal care, skin care, household, cosmetic and other industries have regulations that are responsible for providing us with products that are “safe.” But, the reality is that there are more than 80,000 chemicals in use in the U.S., and many are unregulated. As an example, the cosmetics industry alone (which is self-regulated) uses over 1,000 chemicals in cosmetics sold in the U.S. that are banned in Europe.

There are toxic chemicals hiding in the products you use every day on yourself and your children.

DID YOU KNOW…

  • It only takes 26 seconds for the chemicals from the products you use in your home to enter the bloodstream through your skin.
  • There over 80,000 chemicals in use in the US alone, thousands of which are banned overseas.
    Our children are at risk. Babies are born with 200 chemicals coursing through their veins.
  • Studies have found more than 287 chemicals linked to issues like birth defects, developmental delays, toxicity and even cancer.
  • Manufacturers of the cleaning products and laundry detergents you use every day to clean your home (unlike food, beverage, cosmetic and other personal care products) are not required by federal law to list their ingredients.

At TaketheToxicTest.com/502710, we’ve taken the guesswork out of exposing these chemicals, by providing you with an overview of the top Toxic Ten product categories found in the home (including toothpaste, soap and sanitizer, and kitchen cleaner) and outlining some of the dangerous chemicals they harbor.

Many household brands contain ingredients that can cause an array of health risks. TakeTheToxicTest.com/502710 provides information about some of the health concerns and effects associated with those ingredients, and where to find safer replacements.

Join Healthy Home in our mission to make your home a healthier place by logging on to www.TakeTheToxicTest.com/502710, taking the Toxic Test™ and investigating the products in your home. When you’ve finished, we hope you’ll consider purchasing safer alternatives for your family and encouraging your family, friends and loved ones to do the same.

Trash the Toxins Challenge
Once you’ve taken the Toxic Test™, we are going to challenge you to Trash the Toxins. So get your products together and take the test.  Challange will be announced soon so stay posted to this blog.

It’s up to us to protect ourselves and our families by alerting them to the Toxic Truth™. Together, we can share the message and make a difference—one home at a time!

Get started now by visiting www.TakeTheToxicTest.com/502710, to learn which toxic chemicals are found in products inside your home, then take the Trash the Toxins challenge, and kick toxins to the curb today!

Healthy Home Credits FAQs

Q. How do Healthy Home Credits work?

A. Credits behave similarly to dollars. One credit equals one dollar. You can redeem your credits towards the purchase of products on the Healthy Home website (www.HealthyHomeCompany.com, make sure you have the referring member’s ID # handy or go to their website). For example if you have $10.00 in credits, you can use those credits to purchase $10.00 worth of products on the Healthy Home website.

You can chose to redeem all of your credits toward an order and pay any remaining balance with your credit card or redeem a portion of your available credits towards an order and save the remaining credits for later use.

Q. Will I be charged for shipping when I purchase credits?

A. No. Because credits are not a physical item, you will not be charged for shipping when you purchase credits. If you order physical items with the purchase of your credits you will be charged shipping on the order of those products as you normally would.

For example if you purchase $40 in products on the Healthy Home website and $50 in credits, you will be charged $8 in shipping because your product order does not meet the $50 threshold for free shipping. However, if you order $60 in products and $25 in credits, you would receive free shipping since the total of your product order does meet the $50 free shipping threshold.

When you redeem your credits, if your order is $50 or more at that time, you will receive free shipping as long as the product order is at least $50.

*Free standard shipping is available in the Continental US for product orders of $50 or more

Q. When do credits expire?

A. The expiration date for credits purchased during the Join process is 180 days. If credits are not redeemed within 180 days, the balance will be refunded to the credit card that they were purchased from.

Q. Can I gift credits to someone?
A.  You can gift credits to someone, but in order to receive the credits you must sign them up for a membership. Click here for our tutorial on how to gift credits.

Q. Can I transfer my credits to someone else?

A. No, you cannot transfer your credits to anyone else.

Q. How is sales tax added to my credits?

A. Sales tax is not charged when you purchase credits. Sales tax is charged on the total of your order when you redeem your credits for products.

Q. How do I know my Healthy Home credits balance?

A. You can always see your available balance of credits when you login to your Healthy Home account. Currently, credit balance is displayed in the upper right hand corner of the Healthy Home Company website when you are logged in. They are also displayed on your Back Office homepage.

Q. How do I read a receipt when I purchase with credits?

A. Receipts for orders made with credits will show a line-item where the credits were applied to the total. If no balance was due, the final total will show $0.00. If a partial payment was made with a credit card, then the final total will show the remaining balance of the order after credits are applied.

As always you can email me or call me for questions or more information. This is a fantastic way of securing a membership and having credits on had for those super sales or for new products… think of it as a gift card to Healthy Home :)
