SustainableQATAR’s 52 weekly challenges – that is one challenge per week for a whole year themed by month– are Qatar-specific and Qatar-relevant opportunities for all residents to take actions in personal life, work and within our communities.

What can go wrong in our bathrooms? Oh boy, so many more things than we possibly realize or want to believe. Can a daily swipe of deodorant really be the culprit for breast and testicular cancer? Would you expect to find industrial cleaning and degreasing agents in shampoo?

In our bathrooms we use and store a lot of products that come in direct contact with our skin and bodies, from cosmetics and personal care/hygiene products to medicine, toilet paper, and household cleaners that impact our health.

As promised in the monthly blog on Healthy Homes we introduce the concept of a healthy home to create a toxin free environment at home to be safe from nasty chemicals.

This week’s challenge will help us keep our bathrooms clean of hidden chemical additives and toxins in common and not-so-common products. Learn of some surprising sources of hidden toxins and how best to avoid exposure.
