👚Luckily, GOTS certified/100% organic cotton does not use these chemically-filled manufacturing processes, keeping children
safe in their everyday clothing. For bonus points use brand partner, Rebel Green's baby detergent.

Safer Switch #21: Regular deodorant ➡️ Organic, nontoxic deodorant

🤥Deodorant can be one of the most difficult purchases, because we want to smell good while also making a safer choice. Many deodorants can contain various chemicals hidden in their ingredients such as parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol and aluminum. All of these chemicals can make their way into our bodies and pose harmful threats to our health.

🧼 When shopping for your next stick of deodorant, look for brands that do not contain these harmful chemicals. Look for organic and aluminum-free products, to keep yourself away from these chemicals that effect your body for a lifetime.

Safer Switch #20: Menstrual products ➡️ Organic cotton tampons;
natural rubber diva cup

🩸 Many menstrual products contain a plethora of chemicals of concern. These chemicals include dioxins, furans (which are linked to cancer and EDCs), pesticide residues from cotton, and plasticizers found in the applicator used. These chemicals come in close contact with our hormone regulation, as they are endocrine-disrupting chemicals that can throw off our hormonal balance and potentially lead to breast cancer.

🌹 Using organic cotton tampons or a natural rubber diva cup greatly limit exposure to these chemicals, as they are both options that contain a limited chemical coating while also acting as effective hygiene products.
