After Hurricane Harvey plowed the beautiful city of Houston with cataclysmic winds and heavy rains, it caused untold destruction and devastation in its wake. Sure, relief efforts on the part of various private sectors and people, eventually paved the way for the rehabilitation of Houston’s roads and infrastructure. But after almost a year, new problems are starting to beset residents. The trouble with mold infestation is a recurring annoyance with most citizens as they try to salvage whatever has become of their homes. To contain molds, homeowners purchase a chemical based solution from the nearest convenience store. Little do they know that the ingredients used in these products are highly cancerous and harmful not only to animals but also to humans as well as the surrounding environment; the side effect in using these products is the ultimate destruction of our ecosystem and wildlife.
The use of such synthetic materials in eliminating molds will only contribute to the creation of an environmental crisis, which would make the previous Hurricane Harvey catastrophe pale in comparison. The scope of such an ecological calamity cannot be taken lightly, as the health of individuals and the welfare of the planet is at stake. But this environmental Armageddon can be avoided, as a matter of fact; it can be prevented through the use of natural and organic products.
Upon much reflection, trying to find a way to solve the mold problem, I was able to come up with a foolproof plan of action. As part of this plan, I am putting together a team to test my one hundred percent, plant based and biodegradable, organic formula. There is no need to dismantle structures from houses (unless they are plagued by wood eating pests or have been soaked in water for a prolonged period of time); the plant based solution will do its job in exterminating mold and its airborne spores without the need to demolish anything. This is a fail-safe assurance; there is no need to worry about toxic fumes or cancer causing effects. This is the beauty of plant based products.
An alternative to chemical based mold solutions is imperative and timely as the risks involved in products containing artificial substances are not worth it if you end up in the hospital with unpaid medical bills or with a debilitating disease. Various chemical elements may give rise to an assortment of allergic reactions such as psoriasis and eczema. Also, laboratory findings in mice have shown clear evidence of the correlation between chemical substances and a diverse array of ailments ranging from birth defects and low sperm count in males.
Those most at risk from the hazards of synthetic compounds are infants, kids, and teenagers. Because of their not yet fully matured bodies, they are more prone to absorbing the malevolent effects of these dangerous substances. A few of the disorders that maybe caused by exposure to chemicals are low IQ and reduced cognitive function. These can be attributed to banned substances such as lead and PCBs (Polychlorinated biphenyls).
Synthetic substances can cause adverse reactions if one comes into contact with them or are orally ingested. Inhalation of the toxin can cause difficulty in breathing and may cause bleeding in the lung area. The use of herbicides and pesticides for example may contaminate the air we breathe, causing coughs, tuberculosis and other respiratory diseases. Detergent use has also led to the pollution of ponds and rivers where the chemicals from laundry soap or powder end up in the bodies of fish and other water creatures. Factory made fertilizers, when used on plants and vegetables are not easily washed off by water and can end up in your belly, if you’re not cautious.
It seems that most products from malls and convenience stores contain substantive amounts of synthetic chemicals in them. Which is why, being vigilant in what we buy is indicative of wise decision making when it comes to purchasing and using our hard-earned dollars. Creating our own products from all natural and organic ingredients will go a long way in reducing the pollution of our environment and surroundings. A great way to minimize the impact of chemical degradation is to start our own vegetable gardens in our backyards. This will mitigate the harmful effects of commercially grown veggies and lessen the use of commercial pesticides (as a matter of fact, cooking up your own homemade pesticide from natural, biodegradable ingredients is much preferable).
A consequence of the ruin of the environment is because of our industrial driven and corporate culture. Consumerist capitalism has clearly given us conveniences such as cell phones and automobiles but it has also brought untold damage to our ecological habitat. To illustrate, the oceans have once become a welcome refuge for aquatic wildlife but due to incessant fishing and the contamination of oil spills, some have become empty vassals. Our forests have also been subjected to ceaseless logging and harvesting of timber, leaving large swaths of denuded land while our agricultural lands are drained of nutrients from disproportionate farming but I digress.
As stated earlier, we will require funding of $55,000 to put my anti-mold system into motion; if successful in my endeavor; I will launch a second “mold extermination” team. In the meantime, please support our Indiegogo crowdfunding project by purchasing our other products such as odor elimination plant mist, diffuser with protective oil, necklaces with lavender oil or you may avail of our top quality, grade a services: mold inspection and assessment, mold mitigation and duct cleaning, and complete mold mitigation.
Before I go, I would like to conclude by stating a very urgent concern. Being humans, we are entrusted by nature to become vanguards of the earth and protectors of our planet. So we must, by all means, cherish our home and safeguard it for future generations. The earth is our shelter and sanctuary; we as a people, are one family under the heavens. We must teach our children to defend our ecosystem from the negative effects of modernity and the excesses of consumerism. We owe it to our kids and kids’ grandkids.
