Eat Organic

Whenever possible, eat organic, hormone and pesticide-free food.


Use clean skincare.

We rub them on our faces, apply them to our lips, and even rub them in our armpits. Our bathrooms today are stocked with cleansers, creams, lotions, scrubs, and dozens of other products all designed to make us look and smell good. In addition to makeup and other skincare, each product you use an opportunity to expose your skin to hormone disrupting compounds like parabens, benzophenones, bisphenols, Choose skincare and makeup products free from harmful endocrine disruptors.


Filter your water and indoor air

Indoor air can be up to 5 times more pollinated than outside because of VOCs, cleaning products, and artificial fragrances, an air filter can help remove these irritants for easy breathing.

Harmful compounds disrupt hormone function. A clean and safe home environment helps protect your hormones from endocrine disruptors.


Swap your non-stick cookware.

Non-stick coatings on cookware when heated release chemicals into your food and the air you breathe. Swap non-stick-coated cookware for cast iron, stainless steel, glass, or ceramic.


Store food in glass—not plastic.

Avoid BPA and its similarly bad-for-you alternatives by ditching plastic food containers and storing food and drinks in glass or stainless steel. BPA has estrogenic activity that can leach into foods stored in plastic containers, especially when heated.


Remove artificial fragrances.

Candles, room deodorizers, and other artificial scents contain harmful VOCs and other chemicals that have been shown to be harmful. For a more natural approach, use products scented with essential oils or extracts.


Use hormone-friendly cleaning products.

Every time you wipe down a counter or surface with a conventional cleaner, you leave a little bit of chemical residue behind. Not to mention, while you’re using the product itself, it can off-gas harmful VOCs into the air and right into your respiratory system.
