What is Happiness?
Happiness does not depend on having more things, getting your own way or doing what you think it should. Happiness comes from knowing that while we cant make an unhappy person happy, we are constantly and inevitably affecting other peoples wellbeing. All our encounters with others lift their spirits or lower them. Taking this power seriously is a crucial way of growing into our highest potential. We need to shift our thinking from 'What will make me happy?' to 'How can I most positively affect the world around me?'. Being a source of happiness, support, interest, comfort and wellbeing for others will transform our own lives.

Two good reasons to use non-toxic dish liquid

'Helping your Health and The Enviroment at the same time'

I know this is going to seem like a simple tip but it can make the world of difference to everyday health and the ability to move into cleaning simplicity: Buy liquid dish detergent that is free of dyes and fragrance. Just switching to fragrance-free dish detergent will make the world of difference to the indoor air quality in your kitchen. Synthetic fragrances are made of a large number of petroleum products, hundreds in fact, and can cause a number of health problems including aggravating asthma and neurotoxic reactions. So if you wear gloves when you wash dishes and are not too worried about the dyes (usually a green color) in the detergent, you will still breathe in the scent, and be affected.
Dyes tend to always be up for review for causing cancer and being neurotoxic, even food grade dyes are being removed from the diets of children because they can cause behavioral problems.
Outside of health concerns, vegetable-based dish washing liquid is safe because it can be used for other home made cleaning formulas. If you use toxic dish liquid in your homemade formulas you miss the main feature of the formulas, they don’t contribute to indoor air quality and are better for the waste water stream.
Below are 5 good reasons to switch to Green envorimental products:
