Seventh Generation (a green cleaning product producer) has collaborated with WebMD , a popular online health information site, and Healthy Child Healthy World, a nonprofit dedicated to helping parents create healthier home environments for their children. The result is an online virtual guide called Health eHome.
Health eHome lets users tour through a houehold checking “hot spots” where products are often used which can be detrimental to the health and environment. You click around the virtual home and get warnings about potential health and environmental dangers.
According to a survey sponsored by Seventh Generation 58 percent of people who use household cleaners don’t check the to determine if they contain ingredients that are harmful to their health or environment.
It’s important to be informed about the kinds of chemicals we are breathing in and adding to our water supply. Check out the WebMD Health eHome virtual tour to find out more.
