Would you willingly bring toxic chemicals into your home? If the answer is no, you may want to reconsider which kinds of household cleaners and air fresheners you are using. Many household products we use every day actually contain harmful chemicals like galaxolide and tonalide — two substances that have been linked to breast cancer cells, hormone disruption, and environmental pollution.

These chemicals are used to add fragrance to the products, but instead of increasing the quality, they only add to the dangers of using the products. The only way to get the companies who manufacture these cleaners and air fresheners to listen is to refuse to purchase their products until they begin to show regard for human health and the environment.

Write to SC Johnson and Procter & Gamble asking them to heed the wishes of their consumers and stop using harmful chemicals in their products.

Dear SC Johnson and Procter & Gamble:

It's time your companies stop using chemicals that are having harmful implications for humans and the environment. Galaxolide and tonalide are two substances that, when they enter the body, are proven to build up in cells and produce adverse effects. Not only can traces of these chemicals be found in blood and breast milk, but they also have been linked to hormone problems and even breast cancer.

In addition, tonalide and galaxolide are not easily broken down and, much like in humans, do not disintegrate easily into the environment.

For the sake of human health and the future of our environment, please stop using tonalide and galaxolide in your products immediately!

Thank you.

Apr 10, 2017 Gayla Keesee Please remove the toxic chemicals from your formulas. There are alternative solutions such as essential oils that do not build up in the body and do not harm the environment.
