Why EcoSmart Odor Eliminators are Superior

By: DJ Keller | Posted: 03rd May 2011

Recently, there has been a lot of buzz about jumping on the 'eco-friendly band wagon.' It’s actually very important to care for our Earth so that is it well preserved for future generations, but many people do not realize that some of their common routines and practices are extremely damaging to the environment. A common misconception about the health of our Earth is that chemical odor eliminator products cause little harm to the environment. In fact, these odor eliminators can be harmful and should be avoided at all costs if they contain typical hazardous chemicals. Ecosmart odor eliminator products are certainly the best option, for the following reasons.

1. Chemical Odor Eliminators Contain Harmful Ingredients

Formaldehyde, benzene, chloroform, and triclosan, are just a few of the chemical ingredients that have been shown to potentially cause cancer. When one uses odor eliminator products containing these ingredients, one is releasing an abundance of carcinogenic elements into the air, posing an enormous health risk to all. Air fresheners also contain phthalates which interfere with hormonal systems, disrupt testosterone production and cause malformation of sex organs.
2. Chemical Odor Eliminator Products Can Damage Food Chains

Carcinogenic chemicals that are released into the air can additionally be breathed by animals that humans eat. For instance, cows can readily breathe chlorinated hydrocarbons in the air or ingest it, and it's cancer-causing properties often times show up in the cow's milk. This causes a threat to both the cows who breathe the chemicals and the humans who eat them. Chemicals like glycol ethers can cause harm to the soil, killing innumerable plant species.

3. Chemical Odor Eliminator Products Can Suffocate Underwater Environments

Many chemical odor eliminator products contain phosphates that help to soften water. These phosphates greatly promote the growth of algae, causing an enormous algae boom once the chemicals reach underwater ecosystems. This unnatural abundance of algae can suffocate underwater organisms.

4. Home Made Odor Eliminator Remedies are Not Effective

Natural odor eliminators can be created from some pantry ingredients. For example, the use of baking soda and vinegar is suggested on some ‘do it yourself’ websites. However, the problem with these homemade remedies is that they only work marginally at best, if at all. This often leaves the user frustrated since the problem is not solved after much effort. Furthermore, if you have a serious chemical odor pollution problem e.g. from mothball (naphthalene) or formaldehyde vapors, homemade remedies won’t make any difference leaving you exposed and vulnerable to these very toxic chemicals.

5. EcoSmart Odor Eliminators are Inexpensive & Really Work!

In the past, many people shied away from ecosmart odor eliminator products because of their high price at the store. However, as the world becomes more eco-conscious, odor eliminator prices have dropped significantly.

For example, SMELLEZE® Eco Odor Eliminator Pouches can be purchased for under $12 and they last over a year. It’s a non-toxic, safe, reusable, recyclable, natural, odorless, non-flammable and non-caustic deodorizer. SMELLEZE® is an ideal ecosmart solution for eliminating unpleasant odors without adding pollutants to the air you breathe. SMELLEZE® does not contain VOCs, harmful or ozone depleting chemicals and is especially beneficial for those suffering from allergies and chemical sensitivity. No fossil fuels are used in the production SMELLEZE® odor eliminator media.
