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.

Unless you already clean your home with baking soda, lemon juice, and vinegar, you may want to pay attention to this week’s challenge if you care for your and your family’s health.

Did you know that when buying regular consumer products like household cleaners we have a choice of ingredients between “chemicals of concern,” “chemicals of high concern” or “priority chemicals” – or perhaps all of the above? Yes, it’s a toxic soup of chemicals that are classified by risk and hazardous criteria. In our daily-use products!

If we think ingredients in our food sound foreign or are difficult to pronounce, try the list of ingredients in our household cleaners! Understanding the subtleties of chemicals and the impact of exposure to our health is the first empowering step for action. We have and make choices. Which are the least scary?

This week’s challenge will scrutinize ingredients in household cleaners in more detail and helps provide tools to identify household cleaners free of hidden chemical additives and toxins.
