If you've recently shopped for cleaning products, you aren’t surprised at how many different cleaning products are on the market today. However, you might be surprised to learn how many of these cleaners contain harmful chemicals that poison our ground water and are unsafe for your children and pets.
In order to protect our environment and friends & family members, eco-friendly cleaning products should be used as often as possible.
Here are 2 reasons why choosing an eco-friendly cleaner is a good idea:
- Eco-friendly cleaners are free of harmful chemicals. It’s important to read the labels of any products you consider purchasing. Avoid any that contain toxic ingredients, or that have a toxicity warning label. Stay away from products that contain triclosan, ammonia, and sodium hydroxide.
- Eco-Friendly cleaners are often concentrated. Concentrated cleaning products are better for the environment because these create less waste. With concentrated products, you mix the concentrate cleaner with water to fill the bottle, using the same plastic bottle over and over. In addition to being safer for the environment, this saves you money and reduces the storage space you need.
Take the time to evaluate different cleaners before you buy, so that you can move to more eco-friendly cleaning products for your home. Your home will be just as clean, and you can feel better knowing the products you're using are cost effective and safe for the ones you love!
