Most people are aware of the dangers of outdoor air pollution, but did you know that indoor air quality can be even worse?
Indoor air pollution is typically two-to-five times worse than the air outdoors. And since 90% of our time is spent indoors, indoor air quality is one of the EPA’s top five environmental public health risks.
Health complications from air pollution include asthma, coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, lung inflammation and susceptibility to infections. In fact, 75% of Americans live with someone who suffers from asthma, allergies or other respiratory illness.

For example, Diamond Brite® is powered by natural enzymes and provides an alternative to chlorine bleach when washing your dishes. Also, compare Tub & Tile™ with Tilex Bathroom Cleaner. Tub & Tile is powered by citric acid instead of chlorine bleach, and it has no harsh fumes. You don’t have to leave the windows open or wear a respirator every time you clean the bathroom.
Avoid polluting your indoor air by removing harsh chemicals and the fumes that come with them from your home. You don’t have to sacrifice clean for safety. EcoSense® has a line of products that will get your home sparkling without poisoning the air.
Did You Know?
Outside air pollution can cause a variety of environmental effects such as acid rain, haze, ozone depletion, and forest damage. EcoSense products are 2x, 4x, even 6x concentrated, which means shipping less water and taking up less space. All of that helps reduce the amount of air pollution caused by fossil fuel-burning trucks.
The dangers of store brands
Most grocery store brands of cleaning, dish and laundry products use harsh chemicals like chlorine bleach, ammonia, phosphates, and phthalates. These everyday cleaners may create unhealthy air through a process known as “out-gassing,” where fumes escape the product or give off toxic fumes during use.
With Melaleuca’s EcoSense products you don’t have to be concerned that the vapor coming from your dishwasher contains harsh fumes like chlorine gas. You can still get your home, laundry and dishes clean, but also have peace of mind.
