chem free expo release 8.12

August 11, 2011

Scientific studies are beginning to understand the devastating impact of the chemicals we use to clean our homes and workplaces.

Studies show that the average person has over 100 unnatural chemicals in their bodies.
A study of umbilical cords and mother’s milk identified 287 chemicals were present.
Cancer rates have grown from one-in-fifty to one-in-three.

“If property owners and managers knew the full health, safety and environmental damage created by the way we clean our buildings, there would be an overnight transformation.”

Did you know that we dump over six billion pounds of toxic chemical into our rivers and waterways each year? Two-thirds of our waters are drastically polluted, as a result. Did you know that we injure 200,000 cleaning workers because of the chemicals they come in contact with? Did you know that the average manager thinks that being green means using “green cleaning chemicals”? Did you know that we can compromise the immune, respiratory and reproductive systems of building occupants because of the cleaning chemicals we use? Did you know that the quality of indoor air is five to one hundred times more toxic than outside air?

To explore alternatives to these crises, The Chemical Free Cleaning EXPO has brought together an extraordinary team of experts and thought leaders to share real world non-toxic, chemical free cleaning innovations and strategies. You’ll learn how plain tap water can be electrolyzed, ionized, steamed and ozone-ed to create sanitizing and disinfecting solutions that transition back to plain water after use. You’ll learn how to use a square floor scrubbing machine that take half the time to do a better job of scrubbing your floors. You’ll learn about the power of every day plants to remove toxic indoor air pollutants. You’ll learn how UV light can be a powerful disinfectant….and much more.

This event is being sponsored by The NOVA Southeastern University (NSU) and The Chemical Free Cleaning Network. The EXPO will be held on September 21st at the NSU Don Taft University center Arena. Pre-registration is available at: http://www.cfcn.info/e0.html or at the door.
