and will continue working on it. I have a blog to record my progress, though, so I think I’ll mark the goal itself done. Follow me here if you’re interested in my ongoing progress.

on the topic of flame retardants is here. Posting it here so I can find it if and when I have time to blog again.
I’ve been thinking about this a lot but haven’t had a lot of time for writing about it or for making changes this week.
I have started to see lots of information on this topic now that I’m aware of it. An article about endocrine disruptors crossed my path today, and that also led me to the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, which is apparently associated with the EWG, but is still a useful resource for the blog and for my own project to detox our lives… I can already see this is going to have far-reaching and sometimes disruptive changes. I have mixed feelings, but I am definitely going forward.
I think I’m going to blog about this process here for anyone who’s interested, and share my experiences and resources that I find. Maybe I’ll run out of steam on the project, but I thought it would be a good venue for writing this summer, as well as getting back to my yoga blogs.
I just finished reading Slow Death by Rubber Duck: The Secret Danger of Everyday Things. I’m pretty horrified by what I learned about toxic chemicals in our environments. I thought I did pretty well at avoiding toxic chemicals, but the problem is far more extensive than I thought and I really had no idea how little we are protected from chemicals that could potentially be extremely harmful.
The authors of the book make the point, which makes sense to me, that these chemicals are so pervasive that you cannot completely avoid them, and that governmental intervention is necessary to truly solve the problem. However, they also point out numerous ways in which we can all reduce our exposure to these chemicals. C and I are pretty motivated to remove or reduce as many sources of these toxins from our lives as reasonably possible. (I say “reasonably” because it would be easy to get all OCD about this and I have already had several nightmares and have been experiencing itching all over my body as a result of thinking about this.) We’re going to try to continue to educate ourselves and to reduce our exposure to these chemicals in every way we can by making smarter decisions.
I will post to this goal and/or create a separate blog to share what I’ve learned and what I’m doing about it. In the meantime, I highly recommend the book, even though it’s a few years old now. It’s still a great place to start finding out what you even have to ask or look for.
