Everyone deserves to live in a healthy and safe environment. That environment includes where you live, work, play, and pray. We reject and actively push back against racist rhetoric, actions, policies and institutional oppression that leads to state-sanctioned brutality, gun violence, and harm that again and again assaults communities, particularly communities of color. We are committed to working for justice and equity, and are in solidarity with social, racial, and environmental justice organizations to build community, understanding and honest dialogue to address the root causes of violence, harm and hate.

Get Rid of Toxic Dust Build-Up

We all have dust in our homes—it’s a fact of life. But there is good reason to clean it up. Did you know that household dust harbors lots of toxic chemicals, and our exposure to dust is one of the top ways those chemicals get into our bodies? Phthalates, flame retardants, detergent components, pesticides, PCBs, BPA, parabens, and other toxic chemicals have all been detected in household dust.

Keep in mind the best ways to clean dust is get rid of it without letting it recirculate in the air. Unfortunately, the old fashioned feather-duster won’t do the trick—it just moves the dust around! Try these easy methods instead:

  • Use a microfiber mop or cloth

These magic cleaning devices pick up dust efficiently without the need for additional cleaning solutions or sprays, which just add more unwanted chemicals.

  • Use a vacuum with a HEPA filter

These vacuums can trap even small dust particles without re-releasing them into your home. Make sure you change the filter regularly to keep it working well.
