This video explores the use of cleaning products, highlighting their prevalence among women, particularly Latina household cleaners in California. It discusses the lack of public knowledge about the chemicals in these products, which studies suggest can impact health.

After replacing these with “green” alternatives, significant reductions in carcinogens were observed, with Youth Council members now leading community education efforts.
