Low Tox Life is for anybody who wants to help the environment, from joining the war against plastic, to using planet friendly cleaning products, eating environmentally friendly, and low tox every day care.
Ever stopped to read the list of ingredients in the products you use every day? Or maybe you’re confused by what those ingredients actually are and whether they are good for you? Low Tox Life, by activist and educator Alexx Stuart, gently clears a path through the maze of mass-market ingredient cocktails, providing simple alternatives to the unknown nasties found in everyday products.
Focusing on four key areas: Body, Home, Food and Mind, Low Tox Life, is your non-judgmental handbook to limiting the toxic load, for you, your family and the planet. At the forefront of the low tox movement, Alexx shares the latest science and advice from experts in each area, and tackles everything from endocrine-disruptors in beauty products to going low plastic in a high-plastic world, and how to clean without a hint of harmful toxins and avoid the products that are masquerading as non-toxic.
To get you started, Low Tox Life shows you how to create low tox household and personal products, like dry shampoo, oven cleaner and even a head lice treatment; recipes for delicious low tox family feasts; and tips for navigating ‘greenwashing’, ethical shopping, reducing food waste and low toxing your mind. Alexx also shares her story of the health crisis that inspired her dramatic shift to a low tox life.
You don't need to be a full-time homesteader with a cupboard full of organic linens to go low tox. Start small, switching or ditching one nasty at a time, and enjoy the process as a positive one for you and the planet.
Disclaimer from Earth Interiors: Everything on Earth Interiors is vegan and free from cruel animal products, testing etc. It is worth noting that towards the end of this book, there are non-vegan recipes. As a vegan myself, I have still found that the extensive information about living a low-tox life is extremely valuable and still worth the purchase.
