I want to introduce you to a great site – an indispensable resource for parents who want their kids to grow up toxic-free, or for anyone who’s interested in creating an environment free of dangerous toxic chemicals. The site is Healthy Stuff, and the features of their searchable database are what make this site so special.
When you arrive on the homepage you will see several categories of stuff: toys, children’s products, pets, cars, apparel and accessories, and home improvement.
Just click any of the categories, let’s take Toys as an example, and you will find a summary of why we need healthy toys, results of tests screening toys for toxic metals, chemicals, and PVC, and links to the following:
– Products with No Detected Chemicals of Concern
– Products with Low Concern Levels
– Products with Medium Concern Levels
– Products with High Concern Levels
The lists are alphabetical, so it’s pretty easy to find what you’re looking for.
As you go through the products, you can also keep a list of things you’re interested in following up. You can save the list and even share it with your family and friends!
You can also use their search tool, which lists by brand, type or chemical detected.
This database is great for finding good products as well as checking into the potentially toxic contents of those you already have.
Overall, a pretty comprehensive tool. You won’t find every single product there, but there are thousands. And they’re pretty easy to find. Give it a try!
