Many people believe that hazardous or toxic chemicals are found only in industries that manufacture plastics, pesticides, pharmaceuticals or automobiles. However, a wide range of products we use in our homes contain chemicals that fit the definition of hazardous or toxic. Hazardous products line our kitchen, bath, utilize and garage shelves. Why do we do use these products? Time and convenience are the primary reasons. Are their products that can be made at home that provide the time savings and convenience we have come to expect?

UF/IFAS Wakulla County Extension, through the FCS Program will host a discussion on environmentally safe cleaning methods on January 26, 2013 from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. There is a $10.00 registration fee to defray the cost of materials. Pre-registration is necessary and can be completed by calling 926-3931. We will discuss cleaning products that utilize natural ingredients that are safer for the person using them and for the environment.

This event is co-sponsored by Sustainable Big Bend.
