Do you avoid bottled water or use only BPA free bottles?
Do you walk wide circles around smokers?
Do you buy strict organic, with care to the runoff near the farm?
Do you cook only in cast-iron instead of Teflon?
Flouride free toothpaste?
Laureth Sulfate free soap?
What steps/changes have you made to avoid poisons outside of processed foods?
What environmental poisons are like BpA that we all should be sensitive about?
-I have always only cooked in cast iron and all of my cutting boards are wooden.
-I only drink my own well water.
-Not only do I avoid smokers, I won't make eye contact, LOL. When the mood stikes me, I even have a wee drama that I enact for them wherein I drag my brood of children away whilst coughing and exclaiming "Dear Cthulhu, how awfull! Kids, hold your breath!" Just to irritate/draw attention to said smokers as much as possible. (my children think it's hysterical and play it to the max) ;p
-Shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, lotion, and soap free, me. ;)
-I clean my entire house with only a broom, white vinegar, and baking soda (and a lot of scrubbing!) The one exception is that I do keep a bottle of old fashioned Lysol for sick-room applications.
These are not environmental toxins, but, I have also tried to eliminate caffeine, aspartame, NSAIDS, analgesics, etc, to try to give my poor liver a break.
-Replaced my plastic cutting board with a wooden one
-Bought a good HEPA vacuum to gather dust that may accumulate toxins from my low quality Walmart furniture (although I haven't vacuumed in several months)
-Bought an air purifier because I live next to a highway
-About to buy stainless steel bowls to carry my lunch in (maybe a Bento box?)
-Ditched my radiation-emitting smartphone in favor of messenger hawk
While I do these things at home I am not crazy about them. When I eat out I pay less attention. You body has an amazing ability to detoxify as long as its not doing so all day, every day.
Sodium lauryl sulfate free soap, shampoo, toothpaste.
Ceramic coffee cup.
Filters for water and shower.
I wrote about this a few months ago and there may be some tidbits that you'll find helpful... "Get off the Plastic Bottle"
An incomplete list:
None of this is limiting either. It's more liberating than anything else. Healthy too.
I don't avoid processed food completely, but have limited it significantly.
