🤔 Do you know of a consumer brand that’s concerned about PFAS? Send them my way. We’re considering putting on a webinar with a panel of PFAS experts to give interested brands a roadmap for making safer products.
🏀 How in last week's newsletter, I declared that someone, anyone should write an article about March Madness being good for mental health, even (and maybe particularly) for non-sports fans. Two days ago, NPR kind of did!
We've been sharing more home goods in the newsletter that aren't perfectly Sway-approved, but still great options, with measures for your health in place. Someday, we'll launch the Good, Better, Best rating system, but until then, behold, two cute picks made from natural materials with OEKO-TEX certification.
Napkins: 100% linen, certified to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX
Sheets: 100% cotton, certified to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX & Fair Trade Certified
“The walls that keep out the wider world can also contain a stew of dangerous toxins.” I try to avoid fear mongering in Sway content, but it’s well-known that the air inside our homes is typically significantly more polluted than outdoor air.
“As for indoor sources of pollution: cooking on a gas stove, spraying beauty products, or buying a new couch may seem harmless, but can add toxins to the air in your home.” Your best defense? Source control, aka stopping the problem at the source by shopping for safer home goods on Sway. :)
Hair products marketed to Black women are known to cause hair loss and a range of serious health issues. Melanie Curry writes in this Prevention piece about making safer choices and how to push our government to do more.
Take care this weekend,
