When you think of air fresheners, you think of… well, fresh air. That couldn’t be further from the truth.
Despite their name, air fresheners actually fill the air with dangerous toxins and chemicals. The NRDC conducted a study which showed that more than 85% of commercial air fresheners released harmful particles into the air, even those labeled as “all natural”.
