  • Reflection Question
    Health & Equity Cleaning Product Ingredients
    What was surprising about the ingredients in your cleaning supplies, personal care, and pet products?

    Bounce drying sheet! It's so bad for the environment and for people around.

    https://draxe.com/health/dryer-sheets/

    According to EcoWatch, dryer sheets often contain quaternary ammonium compounds, which can trigger asthma attacks. These cationic fabric softeners also routinely trigger reproductive toxicity in animals. Acetone in the sheets can trigger dizzy spells and headaches.

    I think people forget how to express their feelings and how to communicate effectively with others (especially kids)
