What’s in That Car Air Freshener?

What Can You Do:

-Don’t buy from companies that value trade secrets over the public’s right to know what they are breathing.

-Write to Car-Freshner Corporation (domestic@car-freshner.com) and tell them you want (and deserve) to know the ingredients in their  products.

-Write to the Consumer Product Safety Commission asking them to ban hazardous phthalates in consumer products and requiring ingredient labeling of all consumer products.  Here’s the link to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission and the e-mail for Canadian Consumer Product Safety division of Health Canada (Info@hc-sc.gc.ca).

-Make your office scent-free.  If you’re not the one in charge at your office request that they enact such a policy.

-Want fresh air? Open a window.

-Air fresheners aren’t the only products that allow toxic ingredients.  Personal care products are full of them.   Sign the petition to stop allowing the use of toxic ingredients in personal care products and cosmetics.

Indeed. But I knew there is a new car air freshener
that is solid wood type. Maybe it can be less harmful to human health.

Thanks for this thought-provoking article. I've never had any problems with them but will think twice and definitely check ingredients before buying more.

I would never use any kind of commercial air freshener, they are really bad for the environment and also for people with allergies and asthma, like me. I use peppermint oil and water in a spray bottle for the house, and spray the car with it periodically.

Yes Cheryl M. Chemically sensitive people like us are truly the canaries in the coal mine and we want to warn and protect others from these horrible chemicals. I missed my cousin's viewing tonight because of those stinking TREES in my brothers' car. My heart started pounding within 2 minutes of getting into his car. I felt like I was having a severe asthma and panic attack. I got dropped back off to my car,attempting to follow him to viewing. By then I could hardly drive felt so neurologically impaired and confused and had to pull over,eventually drove home and missed the viewing(after having to pop a couple of prednisone,pills)which is not the greatest option.
