Lindsey W., IL
I am concerned about the air where I live because it is a rural farm community. There are many people in my family that have allergies, including myself and my one-year-old son.
Another reason that has me concerned is that there is a pretty high rate of autism in the surrounding communities, which they say environmental factors affect this. I try to help and save our air by buying natural products to clean with. I just want our government to be more concerned about this. It's a growing problem!
