Happy Earth Day!
At MightyNest, we believe that creating a healthy home is the foundation of a healthy Earth. Our purpose is to help families create healthy, safe and nontoxic homes that are free of known toxins. For us, it all starts with avoiding the many harmful chemicals that are present in synthetic materials. There are over 80,000 synthetic chemicals present in products on the market today and a higher volume of them are produced each year. Of those, less than 20% have been tested for their toxicity. That's certainly an unsettling number. It is still unclear what the long-term consequences of some of these chemicals will pose to our health and the health of our children. And yet, chemicals are all around us so we can't entirely avoid them, but we can make informed decisions to reduce our exposure. That is what MightyNest is all about. We're here to empower you to do the same for your family.
A simple place to start is with the simplicity of materials and ingredients in our day to day products. Often, less is more, especially when it comes to ingredients. Real materials are void of the mystery that comes along with synthetic materials. They are inherently safe and free of potentially concerning chemicals that are often found in synthetic materials like BPA, Teflon, PVC, and more.
Real materials are better for the planet all around. Choosing real materials for our homes help to support the other 3 R's (reduce, reuse, recycle). How? Real materials help us to reduce the stuff we have because they typically last longer than synthetic materials. We're also able to safely reuse real materials because they do not degrade over time, do not leach chemicals into our food and are durable and made to last, sometimes for generations! Further, we can ultimately recycle real materials with far less impact on our planet in comparison to the environmental and financial costs of their synthetic counterparts! That's a triple win!
And to celebrate Earth Day, we are introducing our Pinterest page full of ideas for a healthy home and an opportunity for you to win a $500 Healthy Home Makeover with products from your pinterest board.
