But we are anyway 😄! Single occupancy vehicles still account for most of the cars on the road during commute hours. And a lot of cars = a lot of air pollution 😷. Yikes! Public transit 🚈 is a great alternative to driving by yourself to work, but we know this isn’t an option for everyone. Carpool or vanpool are also great options! ⁣ Repost: @londonundergroundofficial⁣ 📷 @flo_schrdr⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ ⁣ ⁣

Along with checking square footage and appliances, make sure you see what green space is around 🏡! Living by trees, parks, and hiking trails makes it super easy to get outside and be active. Plus, studies have also shown that living near green space can help improve mental health. A walk around the neighborhood might help you de-stress after the big move! 💆‍♀️⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣

Flame retardants. These chemicals are in a ton of consumer products, but they’re not so good for your health. Flame retardant chemicals can easily move from a product onto our skin. ⁣ A recent scientific study has shown that increased household cleaning 🧹or hand washing 🧼(or both! ) can reduce your exposure to flame retardants by half. Removing dust and washing hands before eating are key in reducing the amount of chemicals you’re exposed to. A new reason for spring cleaning! ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ ⁣ ⁣
But even if it’s #oneofthosedays and no one has left the house, kids should definitely wash their hands before eating. Chemicals like flame retardants and lead can be found in household dust. Kids that crawl/play on the floor and eat with their hands can have more dust exposure than adults. To make hand washing more fun for little ones, try using one of our recommended hand soaps or wash while singing a silly song- as long as you sing for at least 20 seconds!
