Home Toxic Home: National Harris/Shaklee Corp Poll Finds 95% of American

Mothers Believe Household Cleaning Products can be Toxic - But only half believe their kids are being exposed to household toxins -

PLEASANTON, Calif., May 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Home may be where the heart is, but these days it's also where the toxins are. According to The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the average American home generates over 20 pounds of household hazardous waste every year. Cumulatively it's a whopping 1.6 million tons -- that's 3.2 billion pounds -- of household hazardous waste per year, of which 176,000 tons is just from cleaning products. Those familiar, everyday cleaners, including tub, tile, shower and toilet cleaner; drain and oven cleaner; wood and metal polishes, laundry bleach and many more, are designated by the EPA as household hazardous waste and improper disposal "...can pollute the environment and pose a threat to human health."

But are moms -- who make most family purchases and still do most of the housecleaning -- aware of the safety concerns about common household cleaners? Do they believe that their families' health may be at risk? Shaklee Corp, the #1 natural nutrition company in the U.S. and maker of "Get Clean(R)" -- home cleaning products that offer natural, non-toxic and biodegradable cleaning choices -- enlisted Harris Interactive in January 2008 to conduct a telephone survey of 1,108 moms across the U.S. with children under the age of 18 living in their households, about home cleaners and safety. Citing poll results revealing misconceptions, contradictions and the need for more education, Shaklee urges Americans to look at what's under their own sinks. "Many people seeking cleaner, greener lifestyles consider the impact of climate change, but very few think about the chemicals we are exposing ourselves to every day in our own homes," says Roger Barnett, Shaklee Chairman and CEO.
