Changes in Home Care

It’s pretty obvious but oft-overlooked: the products we use in our homes and on our bodies eventually find their ways into the great lakes. Using natural and organic cleaning products at home can decrease the amount of chemical waste your household is contributing to Lake Erie. Chemicals and cleaning products can be dangerous for the lake habitat and wildlife and can spoil the integrity of the lake for swimming and fishing.

Now there’s clearly no way that a single home switching to natural and organic cleaning products can undo all that pollution caused by heavy industry in Cleveland and factory pollutants flowing in from rivers and waterways – but as we work on a large scale to address and rectify these problems, small changes on a local level can develop into big city initiatives.
