Love your family, Love your pets: The Hidden products that are Toxic in your Home

Love your family, Love your pets: The Hidden products that are Toxic in your Home

Hello my PÜR Evergreen family! As a mom of three, chicken, dog, and cat lover I really wanted to get this message across to families all over! When doing events I talk to so many people. When I ask what products they are using they are in shock when I tell them they are green washed. Many of these products are found in stores that claim they are natural, but they are not. They told me they had headaches, a hard time conceiving and breathing issues.

My goal is to help teach families and cleaning companies the danger in their homes. In the hustle and bustle of modern life, it’s easy to overlook the potential dangers lurking in our own homes. We strive to create safe, healthy environments for our families and pets, yet many everyday products contain hidden toxins that can harm those we hold dear. This is where the concept of greenwashing comes into play – the deceptive marketing tactic used by companies to portray their products as eco-friendly or safe, when they may be far from it.


At PÜR Evergreen, we believe in transparency and honesty when it comes to the ingredients in our products. We understand the importance of loving and protecting your family and pets, which is why we’ve made it our mission to provide truly safe alternatives to common household items. Let’s dive into the hidden products that could be posing risks in your home, and how PÜR Evergreen offers a solution you can trust.


1 – Household Cleaners: Many conventional cleaning products contain harsh chemicals like ammonia, bleach, and phthalates,  and synthetic scents which can be harmful when inhaled or come into contact with skin. These toxins not only pose risks to human health but can also be dangerous for pets who may come into contact with surfaces cleaned with these products. Many of these products are in our homes now. You will notice your breathing is not as good, your surfaces will have a haze and build up on them.

 PÜR Evergreen offers an All-Purpose Cleaner that is non-toxic and eco-friendly that effectively cleans all of the surfaces in your home without compromising the health of your loved ones and leaving your surfaces shiny and you’re breathing much betting. We use organic high grade essential oils in our products.


2 – Air Fresheners: Synthetic fragrances found in plug in air and spray fresheners along with some candles often can phthalates and other harmful chemicals linked to respiratory issues and hormonal disruption. While they may temporarily mask odors, they can introduce toxins into your indoor air. PÜR Evergreen provides natural alternatives, such as essential oils, and 100% soy wax with a cotton wick and clean fragrance candles, to create a healthier, more fragrant home environment.


3 – Paper Towels:  This may seem crazy or far-fetched, unfortunately, it is very true. Various formaldehyde resins are widely used in certain textiles to make them resistant to creasing, crushing, shrinking, and water-repellant.  This means that formaldehyde compounds are used to add ‘wet strength’ to paper products such as some paper towels and facial tissues. Don’t worry though, PÜR Evergreen has the perfect alternative! Our Swedish Dishcloths are made with the same material that a Swedish engineer invented in 1949: 70% wood cellulose from FSC certified forests and 30% cotton. Safe to use for wiping counters, soaking up spills, doing dishes, or drying your hands!  (and dozens of more uses too!) One Swedish dishcloth can replace 17 rolls of paper towels!  Plus, they are washable (up to 200 times) and 100% biodegradable.

5 – Plastics: From food storage containers to children’s toys, many plastic products contain harmful chemicals like BPA and phthalates, which can leach into food, water, and the environment. PÜR Evergreen offers a range of eco-friendly alternatives, such as Bamboo Kitchen Brushes, Beeswax Reusable Food Wraps, Reusable Totes and Product Bags.  Don’t forget our wooden kitchen toys, that are both safe and sustainable.


In a world where greenwashing is all too common, PÜR Evergreen stands out as a beacon of integrity and authenticity. Our commitment to transparency and safety means that you can trust our products to protect the ones you love most. Join us in creating a healthier, happier home for your family and pets – because when you choose PÜR Evergreen, you’re not just buying products, you’re investing in peace of mind.
