  1. When replacing your cleaning products, dont just throw the old ones in the trash. If they’re too toxic for your home, they wont be good for the drain or the landfill either. Many communities hold toxics & electronics recycling days and will take all of these off your hands. Throwing chemicals in the trash or down the drain means they might end up back in your water supply and come back to haunt you

  2. @2008GetBig Getting sick is due to weakened immune systems, for various reasons. “Green” and non-green, people get sick. I consider myself green, but don’t get sick and I have friends, “green” and non-green that get sick. May we all be open to new ideas. : )

  3. Type TOXIC BABIES into youtube search for more good stuff like this video specific for your babies.

  4. what she didn’t mention was that she was referring to White Distilled Vinegar. She should have said that, but you would never use White Distilled Vinegar on your salad. There are several types of vinegar.

  5. I don’t really care as much about those products being “bad” for me and family and plant, but they honestly don’t work as well as the natural ones you mentioned. It’s also MUCH cheaper to make your own, and it’s not hard at all. Great vid!!

  6. i bet her house is amazing and new agey.
    hah me and my mom buy those lavendar bags form trader joes they really do make the clothes smell good. im going to try it this way though! it seems more fun too haha 🙂

    Yeah, I run a green product business and I’m a little miffed that some of our green stuff comes in plastic bottles.

    Just seems like if we’re doing things a better way, that should include the packaging.

  8. hmm is it me or is buying all those natural essential oils and vinegar in relatively small plastic bottles that you will invariably throw away or recycle still green? if you are going to use the stuff at least buy in bulk doesn’t matter if its pretty to save the environment right?

  9. ok, mayan prophecy? good luck with that…
    and plus it’s just a natural phenomenon, like el nino, ever heard of it?

  10. I bet she thinks vaccines are a bad idea too. Vinegar belongs on my salad, not in my laundry. lol Whats ironic is most of the people i know who have “Gone Green” are usually the ones who take days off from work because they’re sick.

  11. i had a bad deviated septum, and concha bollasa thatcaused constant sinus infection..swimming in a “chlorine”pool killed the infection every time,i foundout by accident…btw ihadsurgeryonit andidont get thesinusinfectionsanymore..

  12. And the best way to get rid of the chemical cleaners – if you have them – is to use them. Don’t just throw them in the garbage, as the speaker demonstrated (for dramatic effect, I’m sure).

  13. Thanks for your info , my son has bad allergies and I wasnt aware I could use natural dried flowers for frangrance

  14. I think the chemical throwing in the trash was just for show. Well, you can’t drain the chemicals in the sink (lab safety rules! who knows what will go on in the sewer) 😛 She’s just bringing up a suggestion to be eco-friendly. Of course just order one from the internet or look for it o.o

  15. Pharmacies use to stock everything to make any ‘witches brew’ the old fashioned way 5-10 years ago, but with the recent explosion of new shampoos and convienece products have taken the shelf space they once held. Its ironic really, being that this is a time when they are more popular and sought after

  16. ….. she just threw away all of those chemicals.. into her trash… i would think that cant be that good….. and who keeps pipets around the house? and why do the extract oils.. look like they are in chemistry style bottles… where does one find those on a regular basis….

  17. next million years?? I’d focus on the next 10 – 20 years…

    or the next 4 years… mayan prophecy might come true..
