Everyday Pollution Solutions

Your Guide to Going Green

1 Use cast iron pans instead of nonstick. 

2. To avoid chemicals leaching into food, go easy on processed, canned or fast foods and never microwave plastic. 

3. Buy organic, or eat vegetables and fruit from the "Clean 15" list. 

4. Pregnant women should use iodized salt to combat chemical interference from the thyroid.
5. Seal outdoor wooden structures. 

6. Leave your shoes at the door. This cuts down on dust-bound pollutants in the home.

7. Avoid perfume, cologne and products with added fragrance. Search for personal care products that are fragrance-free, or check the products you're already using.

8. Buy products with natural fibers, like cotton and wool, that are naturally fire resistant. 

9. Eat low-mercury fish like tilapia & pollock, rather than high-mercury choices like tuna & swordfish.
10. Filter your water for drinking and cooking.
