Say NO to chemicals!

Body Edge Takes the Lead on Going Green, Clean and Lean!

thieves cleanerOcean Isle Beach, NC – March 15, 2016 Cindy Black, owner of Body Edge Fitness Solutions, announces the implementation of a non-toxic, plant based cleaning agent to reduce the hazards and exposure to harmful, toxic chemicals for clients of the gym.

To encompass a well-rounded approach to health & wellness, Body Edge Fitness stands behind offering a complete package. Fitness, to include classes, personal training and full gym services, as well as nutrition consultations, and Young Living therapeutic grade essential oils, to include the use of safe cleaning agent, Thieves Cleaner.

The Environmental Working Group has unearthed compelling evidence that hundreds of cleaners, even some of those hyped as “green” or “natural” can inflict serious harm on unwary users. Many present severe risks to those who come into direct skin contact with the cleaning agent, or breathe their fumes. Though many Americans assume government bodies oversee the safety of the multi-billion-dollar household and commercial cleaning products industry, it is largely unregulated. (Information reported from the 2012 EWG Cleaners Database)

There are toxins everywhere in everyday life, and some are harder to avoid than others. However, when it comes to chemicals, cleaning products are some of the top offenders. Often we pay the price of our health in exchange for attempting to clean our daily environment. According to the Organic Consumers Association: “In 2000, cleaning products were responsible for nearly 10% of all toxic exposures reported to U.S. Poison Control Centers, accounting for 206,636 calls.” Cleaning products provide us with a range of health concerns. Some cause hazards such as skin or respiratory irritation, watery eyes, or chemical burns, while others are linked with chronic or long-term effects.

Our transition to naturally derived, plant-based cleaning will provide a safer alternative, contributing to long-term health and wellness. More information about this product can be found at www.youngliving.com.  It is also available for sale at Body Edge Fitness. Body Edge Fitness also aims to educate the general public and their clients by offering monthly classes. The next ‘Live Less Toxic’ class will be held on Wednesday, March 30th, 6pm. Cost is $10. To register, please call 910-575-0975 to reserve a spot.
