Are you coming home from work with headaches? It may be more than eye strain and stress making you sick. Switching three common office products can reduce your exposure to harsh toxins.
More people have become aware of the dangers of VOCs in paint, but they’re often overlooked in common office supplies. Big name dry erase markers are often full of big time chemicals with bigger side effects: xylene (headaches, nausea, dizziness), toluene (nose/throat irritation, drowsiness, skin irritation), and VOC’s (nervous system damage, headaches, fatigue). You won’t find any of those toxins in our Friendly Dry Erase Markers.
Highlighters often contain the same toxins found in dry erase markers. Not only are our Friendly Highlighter Markers free from xylene, toluene, and VOC’s, they’re also gluten-free. Working with fine print? Try our highlighter pencil sticks. Made from natural, sustainable wood, they are also biodegradable. They won’t bleed through pages and are more line specific.
Even though life is fairly electronic, there’s still plenty of paperwork in the office. Handling paper all day can lead to dry hands. Make sure the lotion bottle on your desk isn’t full of synthetic fragrances (which may lead to headaches, allergic reactions, and skin sensitivities). Green Envee Organic lotions use pure essential oils and organic ingredients to keep you and your environment safe. Working in a “scent-free” office? Try the Shea & Calendula lotion; or try the Nut-Free version for nut-allergy environments.
