It’s Not Personal, It’s The Chemicals #2

The images in the 1st It’s Not Personal, It’s The Chemicals  were so popular, I decided to make more while my brain was functioning in this mode. Here are a couple that were very well received on facebook, plus a few new ones featuring children and office workers, as they too are being impacted by what we choose to use and put in the air.

It s not you 16

It s not you children

It s not you 18

It s not you boy

fragrance free group 1

I would love to have funding for or see an organization print some of these (or similar) as postcards or business cards, with an info link or two on the back, so they could be given out freely.

Clean, pollutant-free air is good for all of us.

  1. Great ideas. Thanks for making the air a little cleaner today.

    • We can hope that people share these around on social media… the more seeds are planted, the better…

      I just wish this issue wasn’t going the route of smoking, asbestos, lead, breast cancer, etc, where it’s taking so long for anything regulatory to happen, lives get ruined, bodies pile up, and still all that gets done are awareness campaigns…

      Anyway, maybe santa will get me a good photo program (and a new non-toxic computer to use it on) so I can make more “seeds”, since most people don’t have an attention span long enough to read much more than that
      (too many fragrance chemicals and too much wireless radiation affecting brain cells – maybe my next ones will address the wireless)

      Hmm, I need to be more hopeful, that the seeds and awareness are growing and that people are hearing the messages before it’s too late for them…

  2. I can really understand the reaction people have to this – smell is such a powerful thing!
    When I was told I was allergic to fragrance it took me about 6 months before I could face not wearing it every day. And another 4 months before I could stop wearing it on ‘special occasions’. It was like letting a part of myself go – I loved the way I smelt – I wore perfume every day and had several sorts depending on what mood I was in that day.
    Well done for spreading the message about this tricky topic – awareness has to come before understanding and acceptance.

    • Thanks Claire, and sorry you’ve had problems because of fragrances too.

      There was a day when they were made of harmless substances from the earth, but that changed, and now most fragrances are petroleum based. I suspect it’s the petrochemicals that affect us in ways that cause more allergies to natural substances now too.

      The fragrance industry also has very deep pockets for advertising and making psychological explorations on how to manipulate people, with their products by directly targeting people’s brains and emotions, without permission, without a medical license, without regulatory oversight as to the “drugs” they are administering, especially when “scent marketing”, and how to further manipulate with clever campaigns (like it’s special to use a poison on special occasions???). Sighs…

      I tried to subject myself to some of the toxic concoctions too, when I was younger…
