Most people have a doubt about what exactly eco-healthy is. Well, when you make a less toxic environment at your home for your family, then you can say that your home is eco-healthy.

There are many products which we use at home- for cleaning, greasing, scrubbing, etc. These products may contain many kinds of toxic chemical which can pollute the environment of your home. Such products can be generally found under your sink, in those laundry supplies or in your bathroom cabinet. You have to ensure that these things are less toxic. There are many other ways by which you can ensure that your home is eco-healthy. Some of them are stated below.

  • What kind of food containers do you use in your kitchen? If you are using plastic ones, then it is definitely not a very good idea. You can choose glass over plastic for storing your food items. Plastic containers should be always avoided when you microwave food.
  • You can use a filter while using tap water in your house. This will filter all the local contaminants present in the water. As a result of this, you will get clean and filtered water.
  • There is another thing which you should avoid. Drinking bottled water. Use a reusable water bottle made of stainless steel. Avoid using those plastic bottles or aluminum ones with plastic lining.
  • If you are using non-stick cookware, then you must know that it is not a very eco-health product. Yes, such cookware, when overheated emits toxic fumes. So when you are using them, you are unknowingly inhaling toxic particles. You can replace such cookware with stainless steel, glass or cast-iron if possible. Choosing safer cookware will definitely help in reducing the risk.
  • We all know that baby feeding bottles are always made of plastic. But, this is not save either. You can use BPA-free plastic bottles or the light glass ones for feeding your baby.
  • To keep the air of your home clean, avoid smoking at home. Tobacco smoke not only pollutes the air in the house but is also harmful for the people staying in the house. Smoking is a very harmful habit which is very difficult to quit. There are some products, which can help you in quitting your habit of smoking. One of them is E-cigarettes or electric cigarettes. They look very similar to regular tobacco cigarettes but are actually tobacco-free in nature. When one takes a puff of the e-cigarette tube, there is a battery in it that heats up the nicotine. This creates a vapor which is then inhaled into the lungs. One gets the sensation of smoke without actually smoking, in the mouth and lungs. These e liquid cigarettes can help you in quitting your habit of smoking as well as not pollute your home.

These are some ways by which you can create a eco-healthy environment in your home.
