Green Resolutions: The True Value of Going Green

 

Sapphire Green Earth Explores the Real Cost of Toxic Household and Personal Care Goods

 San Diego, January 07, 2012 – Cancer is the leading cause of death, killing over 7 million people worldwide. In the United States, there are approximately 1.5 million new cases diagnosed each year, resulting in 500 to 600 thousand deaths yearly. 

According to the American Cancer Society, the average total economic impact of Cancer in the United States is $264 billion each year, of which $103 was for direct medical costs. In addition to the emotional toll of dealing with an illness like cancer, the monetary cost to the individual is daunting.

Experts have determined that environmental factors greatly contribute to many health problems including cancer.  Studies have found that contrary to popular belief, heredity only accounts for five to ten percent of cancer cases, whereas 90% to 95% is attributed to environmental factors. In fact, cancer has been termed an ‘environmental illness’. Carcinogens (cancer causing agents) present in the air, water and soil due to industry chemicals and radiation are not the only culprits in this equation. Everyday toxic household and personal care items play a big part in the environment as cancer-causing agents.

The most preventable causes of cancer and other health problems are household and personal care products people use every day. The chemical-based products used in kitchens, bathrooms, laundry, and even cosmetics,  greatly increase our exposure to carcinogens.

Although many in the United States who have been affected by economic hardship state that they purchase chemical-based household and personal care products because of their price, a significant amount of the population is aware of the short-term and long-term monetary and health benefits of going green, and are opting for green, all-natural alternatives.

Sharisa Henry, Co-founder of Sapphire Green Earth, an independent supplier of green, natural household and personal care products, believes that consumers should be aware that the dangers of toxic goods are real, and of how important it is to implement a green lifestyle.

She says, “There are immediate benefits to energy efficiency and green living, but the true value of eliminating toxins and harmful chemical-based products from our lives is the gift and enhanced quality of life, health, and a better environment. “

Sapphire Green Earth, a San Diego based company, has directed its focus to providing a convenient and easy way for households to eliminate toxic, chemical-based products from their homes through the implementation of green household and personal care goods.
