Vero Beach, FL (PressExposure) August 07, 2009 -- /1888PressRelease/ Before college students step foot in their dorm rooms this fall semester, theyâll be arming themselves with a must-have shopping checklist. As they roam the aisles of their local retail center, thereâs one item in particular theyâll not want to forget. A safe and effective fabric freshener is a multipurpose must-have for every university campus dweller. To that end, environmentally conscious parents may want to encourage their collegiate sons and daughters to make the switch from Febreze to Eco Breeze. Manufactured by Earth Friendly Products, Eco Breeze contains only pure, honest and simple ingredients that are non-toxic and plant-based.
Faced with a host of other priorities and a lack of access to laundry facilities, many college students save up their dirty clothes and linens for their trips back home to mom and dad. Unfortunately, several weeks lie between the start of the semester and fall break. In the interim, a high-quality, effective fabric freshener can keep the bed bugs and bad odors at bay. But does that refreshing scent and peace of mind have to come at an environmental and health-risky price? Earth Friendly Products doesnât believe so.
Traditional fabric refreshers contain synthetic oils that are known to be eye irritants and to cause asthma. Theyâre also often full of phthalates, chemicals that have proven to be hormone disruptors. In fact, just last month, âScience Dailyâ reported that âExposure To Phthalates May Be A Risk Factor For Low Birth Weight In Infants.â The article went on to point out, âChemical compounds used as plasticizers in a wide variety of personal care products, [phthalates have] been associated with negative changes in endocrine function.â
No parent wants to expose their children to such risks, and now they have an alternative. Eco Breeze by Earth Friendly Products will keep studentsâ clothes, bedding, shoes, etc. smelling fresh between washings without the chemicals found in other leading fabric fresheners. In fact, Eco Breezeâs ingredient list contains only all-natural, pronounceable components like purified water, grapefruit seed extract and corn-derived odor eliminator.
Earth Friendly Products understands parentsâ concerns. âWeâre a family business that does everything with a special kind of care,â explains Kelly Vlahakis-Hanks, Vice President. âAs the mother of a five-year-old, Iâm more conscious than ever that everything individuals do to harm the environment is putting my daughter at risk as well,â she continues. âFor the past twenty years, weâve striven to make the world a better place for her and all children.â Eco Breeze is just one of 150 ways Earth Friendly Products is improving the world in which young people live.
