Everywhere you go, you will see the virtues of antibacterial cleaning being touted by all and sundry. But the entire antibacterial approach to cleaning is actually causing us more harm than we know and we need to ask ourselves if antibacterial chemicals deserve a place in our homes, offices and environment.
Many household cleaning products – not limited to floor and bathroom cleaners alone – are loaded with combinations of harmful chemicals with proven ill-effects on human and animal health and also the environment. Here are the most harmful ones you need to watch out for.
Chemical-laden floor cleaners don’t clean your homes. They disinfect them. Which is not a good thing. Because you are also killing off the bacteria that are good for you. And these chemicals are actively harming you. Which is why we innovated floor cleaning with ThinkSafe.
We live in a time where people are increasingly conscious of the impact of their actions on the environment and on personal health. And yet, we clean our toilets with chemicals that harm us and the environment equally. That is why we innovated safe toilet cleaning with ThinkSafe.
Superbugs and drug-resistant bacteria are one of the biggest threats to human health across the world right now. There is growing evidence that shows a link between antimicrobial resistance and the use of biocidal chemical cleaners. We have actually been cleaning our way to ill-health all this while.
Most cleaning products are laden with toxic chemicals, harmful for you, your kids, your pets, and the environment. With ThinkSafe, we are making your homes clean the healthy way while also examining what we discard from our homes, and how it impacts the cleanliness of our environment.
The very products we use to clean our homes are causing us harm. Household cleaners expose us to 62 chemicals everyday, affecting health and also our environment. Cleaning should be about balance, not hyper-sanitation that kills off all bacteria, including the ones that are good for us.
A septic tank is an essential first step in the efficient and effective means of treating wastewater generated in every one of our homes and offices. But it is not a catch-all for all kinds of household waste. Keep your septic tank safe to keep the environment safe.
Poor sanitation, lack of access to clean water, and inadequate personal hygiene are responsible for an estimated 88% of childhood diarrhea in India. Taking action to improve health requires understanding the factors that influence exposure to faecal pathogens and the various pathways in which they are exposed to human beings.
It is crucial to examine what goes into our waste water, and know and understand where it goes once it leaves our home. It is time to start examining what we put in our cleaning products and how toxic the waste water we create is. Because the health of our waterways, oceans and all the living beings depends on it.
