What is Low Tox Living?

Low tox living is becoming increasingly popular as people seek to reduce their exposure to toxins, pollutants and chemicals.


Low tox living is based on the idea that taking small steps to reduce our exposure to toxins can have a positive impact on our health and the environment.


Low tox living is based on four pillars: reducing exposure to toxic chemicals, eating organic, reducing waste and promoting sustainability.



Reducing Exposure to Toxic Chemicals: Low tox living involves reducing our exposure to toxic chemicals such as pesticides, industrial chemicals, synthetic fragrances and endocrine disrupting chemicals. This can be achieved by reducing our reliance on processed and packaged foods and opting for organic produce and natural, non-toxic cleaning products. It also involves avoiding synthetic fragrances, opting for natural alternatives such as essential oils, and avoiding products with endocrine disrupting chemicals such as phthalates and parabens.


Eating Organic: Organic food is grown without the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. Eating organic is beneficial for both the environment and our health as it reduces our exposure to potentially harmful chemicals.



Reducing Waste: Low tox living involves reducing our waste by reducing our consumption of single-use items, such as plastic bags, straws and utensils. We can also reduce our waste by composting food scraps and using reusable containers instead of disposable ones.


Promoting Sustainability: Low tox living also involves promoting sustainability. This means supporting businesses that are committed to sustainable practices, such as using renewable energy sources and reducing their carbon footprint. It also involves reducing our consumption of resources such as water, electricity and fuel.


Low tox living is an easy way to reduce our exposure to toxins, eat healthier, reduce our waste and promote sustainability. By following the four pillars of low tox living, we can make small changes that can have a big impact on our health and the environment.
