Fragrance Free Day

August 13th, tomorrow is Fragrance Free Day!

According to the Environmental Protection Association (EPA), fragranced products such as typical household cleaning products, candles and air fresheners are one of the leading contributors to poor indoor air quality, which can lead to health issues like asthma, and exposure to chemical fragrances has been linked to everything from skin irritation to cancer. Chemical fragrances are especially dangerous to household pets as they have faster respiratory systems and are closer to the ground, providing them with increased exposure.

Fragrance Free Day gives concerned consumers a chance to help spread awareness by pledging to go “fragrance free” via their social networks – meaning no perfumes/colognes, scented lotions or harsh cleaning products with added fragrances – for one full day.

So, what can you do? For one day, help the world breathe easier and pledge to not use any products that contain harsh chemical additives and fragrances. Use your Facebook status, your Twitter feed (with hashtag #fragrancefreeday) and your blog to let everyone know “I am going Fragrance Free on August 11th because...”

In addition, SeaYu will be hosting a live Twitter chat from 12 – 1 pm EST where your readers can get all of their fragrance questions and concerns addressed, with a panel of experts including:

-Quincy Yu, Founder of SeaYu and green living expert
-Dr. Patrick Mahaney, Veterinarian, Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist and author of the upcoming book, “The Uncomfortable Vet”
-Dr. Stephen Ziman, organic chemist

Knowledge, as they say, is power, so share yours and help empower your friends and family to take steps to protect themselves, their family, their pets and our planet!

I love my perfume, but it's just one day right?
