Why Go Chemical Free?

Why Go Chemical Free?

Why we are trying to reduce chemicals at our Helensvale centre, and how doing so can benefit you at home!

Sustainability & Environmental Impact

At Bush Babies, we believe in promoting and teaching sustainable practices to help safeguard our planet for future generations.

The chemicals we use each day in our cleaning products can have a serious impact on our environment. One study found that many commercially used cleaning chemicals are not broken down, ending up in waterways where they cause damage to wild life and marine environments. Our product choices really do make a big difference further down the line!

If every household in the country replaced a single bottle of petroleum-based cleaner with a plant-based one, it would save enough oil to heat around 500 homes. This is an amazing impact and shows that the little changes we make in our homes can mean big things for the planet where our children are growing up.

We have the power to help make the world we leave behind for our children a safer one to live in!


Health and Wellbeing

Many of the cleaning products commonly used in our homes contain highly toxic chemicals which pose significant health risks. Indoor air pollutants have been ranked among the top five environmental risks to public health, so why do we want these products in our homes!

At Bush Babies, we understand that it is not always possible to be completely chemical free, but we are big believers in reducing chemical usage as much as possible. With the help of Erica from In Just One Drop, we have recently swapped our bench top sprays and baby wipes to all-natural solutions made from essential oils.


We believe that sustainable practices are the way of the future! We are looking forward to rolling out our sustainability plans at The Strawberry Bush over the coming months. For more information, contact us today!
