Every Day Household Products Can be Deadly for Children
– Earth Friendly Products urges parents and schools to rethink harsh chemical cleaners at back-to-school time –
Earth Friendly Products (www.ecos.com) urges parents to think about the products they use as they send their kids back to school. Everyday cleaners, those used to launder school uniforms, clean lunch boxes, sanitize school supplies and toys or even freshen the air, contain dangerous, toxic chemicals, many of which are deadly if swallowed. Even the products used to clean school classrooms are harsh chemical cocktails with noxious fumes.
In an ongoing effort to drive awareness of the products that are brought into homes by unsuspecting consumers across the nation, Earth Friendly Products, a leading maker of all-natural, eco-friendly cleaning products, is re-launching its “Safeguard Your Home!” online campaign on the company’s dedicated Facebook page, but with a back-to-school twist. Safeguard Your Home! is a nationwide program to push families to rid their homes of lethal household cleaners and Earth Friendly products is extending the campaign to encourage parents to protect themselves and their children from the health dangers that toxic cleaners pose at schools and in dorm rooms.
To participate in the back-to-school campaign, Earth Friendly Products fans can visit www.facebook.com and “like” Earth Friendly Products. Once a fan, users are encouraged to explain on the Earth Friendly Products wall why their classroom or dorm room needs a green cleaning makeover. Everyone from teachers, students, parents, professors and caregivers are encouraged to tell their stories on Earth
Friendly Products Facebook page. All participants will be entered to win free, full-sized Earth Friendly Products samples. The prize packs include ECOS Laundry Detergent, Dishmate Hand Dishwashing Soap, Wave Autodishwasher Detergent, Eco Breeze, Window Cleaner and Parsley Plus all-purpose cleaner.
“Whether preparing a young adult to go to college or sending a five-year-old off to kindergarten, parents should be aware of the products their children come in contact with on a daily basis,” said Van Vlahakis, CEO of Earth Friendly Products. “Recently it has been reported that cases of children being poisoned by household chemicals has risen and the time has never been more apt to change the way we clean. Avoiding harsh chemicals can also prevent a slew of respiratory ailments, not to mention accidental chemical burns from contact with the skin.”
In August, it was reported by Pediatrics magazine that each year, nearly 12,000 are rushed to the emergency room after ingesting chemicals from household cleaners from ammonia to bleach. For a small, but startling percentage of children, this brief contact with chemical-laden cleaners results in life-threatening symptoms and, in some cases, long-term disabilities. To date, little has been done to change the dangerous compounds that threatened people’s health and the planet and Earth Friendly Products is set to change it.
