Description

‘Honest yet inspiring, Go Toxic Free empowers us to take positive action today.’ – Lucy Siegle

Go Toxic Free
is a vital guide to help us all make important changes to our lifestyles and consumption to help reduce the devastating impact of chemical pollution.

Plastic pollution has been headline news since David Attenborough’s shocking Blue Planet II in 2017. But plastics are only part of the story, and the invisible world of chemical pollutants – in the soil, the air, our water systems and our own bodies – is just as concerning. There’s been a huge rise in chemical related health issues (affecting IQ, fertility, cancer and more) in recent years, and this isn’t surprising when over 70 per cent of chemicals used in the EU are hazardous for health or the environment.

This inspiring and practical book will make this invisible world visible, looking at the wider issues of harmful chemicals – what they are, where they’re hidden and the extent of their environmental impact. Taking you on an in-depth tour of your kitchen cupboard, your bathroom cabinet, your wardrobe and your garden, Anna Turns reveals the harmful chemicals that lurk inside your home, the damage they can cause and helpful swaps and tips to avoid them wherever you can.
