So many times we purchase items without actually considering what we're buying. But the fact is many of the items big corporations have labeled as "safe" for our children contain paints, chemicals, dyes, and glues which are known to cause illnesses, disability and in some cases long term health issues. There are even cases of substances that are banned in the US because of their toxicity ending up in or on children's (or even Adult) products which are manufactured outside of the country. And while we can't possibly keep our children from ever owning something that may contain chemicals, we can do our best to make sure that the bulk of their possessions are items that won't hurt them or our Earth!
