Chemical-free Car Air Fresheners
We all love to use air fresheners in our cars. But did you know that certain air fresheners can do more harm than good?
A recent study conducted by the National Resource Defense Council (NRDC) on different air freshener brands; they found out that 80 percent of these store-bought air fresheners contained variable amounts of phthalates.
Phthalates are substances that are added to plastic to make them last longer, make them more flexible and more durable. While these findings are still a subject of much debate in the industry; studies have shown that high doses of phthalates have been linked to hormonal disruption, allergies, including eczema in children, and precocious puberty in girls.
In fact, the United States, Canada, and the European Union have banned the use of phthalates over health concerns.
In some cases, air fresheners can also contain chemicals like benzene, petrochemicals and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) like formaldehyde. These chemicals can cause long-term health problems and are harmful to the environment too.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) notes that most store-bought air fresheners contain one or more of the previously listed chemicals. In addition, the EPA’s Indoor Guide to Air Quality explicitly states that VOCs from air fresheners and other products “cause eye, nose, and throat irritation, headaches, nausea, and can damage the liver, kidney, and central nervous system”. Additionally, air fresheners “release pollutants more or less continuously”.
So what’s the solution? People who are mindful of indoor pollutants should switch to “green” alternatives. Thankfully, there’s now a company that makes safe air fresheners for your car.
