Purses, handbags, wallets and even diaper bags are items that moms find themselves carrying around on a regular basis. When you pick out your purse or any of the other similar items I just mentioned you are probably looking for a few things. Of course you want it to be practical and have features you like such as zipper, snap, buttons or any combination. But, a big reason is obviously if we like it or not… do we think its cute, stylish and so on. Did you ever think that when picking out one of these items you would have to consider if it is toxic or not? I never thought about whether my purse was toxic until now. The purses, handbags, wallets and even diaper bags that we carry on a daily basis are now beginning to be tested for traces of lead. Lead! Isn’t that only supposed to be an issue with paint? That’s what I thought. But no, now we have to be concerned about the everyday item we have on our shoulders! I have written a post about this issue for Green Oklahoma, Toxic Purses. Check it out, you might be surprised!
