Welcome! Take a Walk on the Green Side offers greener alternatives to everyday items for all members of your family.
We are inundated with single use, disposable items to make our lives easier, from pre-packaged foods, to disposable diapers, coffee cups, and plastic food wrap. It’s easy to use and toss in the trash without a thought how it affects our lives once it’s gone. According to Environment Canada, over 4,000,000 disposable diapers are discarded per day. Per day! Our landfills are filling up quickly and there is much we can do to reduce the amount of trash we create.
Have you ever looked at the ingredient listing on your home air freshener, bathroom cleaner or toothpaste? Did you know there are many hidden chemicals in some of our everyday items? Research is now linking exposure to certain compounds to health problems such as, dermatitis, headaches, fatigue and immune dysfunction.
