According to today’s research, there are a number of chemicals used in every day products we use that cause complications with our health. It is proven that many of them can actually cause cancer. Additionally, it is suspected that these chemicals cause other issues, including hormonal imbalances, autoimmune diseases and more.
The Hospitality Coalition on Indoor Air Quality has a two-fold goal to educate consumers and also fight for their health. The HCIAQ believes that health a person’s health determines their quality of life. They are seeking to raise consumer awareness of these chemicals used in their every day products and encourage them to use their voice to demand safer products.
These chemicals are found in products such as carpet, furniture, clothing, home décor products, air fresheners, and more. While they may provide some benefits such as making a room smell nice or preventing stains, they pose major health risks. The HCIAQ is calling for manufacturers to find new, non-toxic alternatives to these chemicals.
The HCIAQ is very aware that consumers have very little say in whether or not they are exposed to these harmful toxins because they are used in essential, every day products. Even those consumers who are careful to avoid harmful toxins in their own purchases find it impossible to avoid these chemicals in public.
To combat the use of these chemicals, the HCIAQ does 2 things:
- Educate consumers. The HCIAQ educates consumers on these harmful toxins and what they do to their health. They also provide a list of products and companies that do not use toxic chemicals, helping to provide choices for consumers.
- They work to outlaw the use of toxic chemicals. The HCIAQ is constantly working with lawmakers on strategies for eliminating the use of harmful toxins in household and business products. They work tirelessly to educate and convince lawmakers of the importance of eliminating these toxins for the health of the people.
