The Importance of Green Cleaning

The Come Clean Blog

The Importance of Green CleaningIt’s easy to see that environmental responsibility is a huge concern for today’s consumers when you look at the products you find on supermarket shelves across the country. Nowhere is this more evident than in the cleaning supplies aisle. The environmental movement has made consumers acutely aware that the chemicals used in household cleaners can be dangerous to personal health as well as the environment. JAWS Cleaners offers a great variety of non-toxic; multi-purpose cleaners and can deliver them straight to your door. Here are some good reasons to clean green:

  • Healthier Family: When you buy non-toxic cleaners, you’re choosing a healthier option for your household. Phthalates used in synthetic fragrances common to household cleaners not only irritate the skin but can lead to respiratory problems when they enter the lungs. People with asthma should avoid harsh fragrances and aerosols for this reason. They have also been found to disrupt the endocrine system, the body’s chemical messaging system and are a risk factor for many cancers.
  • Safe for Pets: Pets get into places you would not think possible, probably even some places we’d rather not know about. If you used a harsh floor cleaner with triclosan, a common antimicrobial agent, you’re coating the surface with chemicals that could make pets ill if they eat something off the floor. Peace of mind comes standard with non-toxic cleaners for all surfaces in your home.
  • Reduce Waste: Cleaning with JAWS Cleaners is not just good for you; it’s good for the planet! According to the Plastic Pollution Coalition Americans alone discard more than 38 million tons of plastic each year and only 9 percent get recycled (2019). Why should perfectly usable bottles be discarded when they can be reused? With your starter kit and refill pods you reuse your bottle and reduce the amount of single-use plastics that end up in landfills.

You can take these small but meaningful steps to help make a difference in your household and the environment.
