Safer eco-living, one day at a time

I never thought I’d see the day. March 16, 2009

This past Thursday, S.C Johnson announced that it will phase out all phthalates from their products and begin listing all ingredients on their household products.

S.C. Johnson will offer information about these changes through a website (, which will be in both English and Spanish by the end of 2009, their toll-free number (1-800-558-5252) and on product labels.

    It’s about time.

    Ugh…still won’t buy that stuff. I have gotten so used to not having it, so it won’t matter. I will continue to support the small businesses & eco-conscious companies that have always made phthalate free products available to me and that have always had ours and the earths health in mind. The only reason they are changing is because of $$$. Too little, too late.

    Wow. Wonders never cease. I’m with S in that I’ll stick with the brands I like, but it’s nice to know the uneducated masses will be a little safer. And around here in the sticks, that means most of the folks. (The green stuff is hard to get and expensive. Most folks aren’t willing to spend the time or can’t afford it.)

    Good to see the big guys making changes, should help get others on board, too.

    As an aside, I’m making the switch to pthalate- and paraben-free makeup and beauty products. Hurts the bank account a bit, but seems worth it.
