As more people are becoming environmentally conscious, we’d expect green cleaning to grow in popularity as well. In essence, green cleaning is the practice of using eco-friendly cleaning products that are safer for people and environmental health.
Given our busy lifestyle, we are likely to opt for convenience by purchasing traditional cleaning products, thanks to its availability in supermarkets. But is this really the better choice for our family’s health and the environment?
Just because you need to clean your home doesn’t mean you have to compromise your health or the environment to do it. Today, you can easily keep both safe with non-toxic cleaning products that can take care of any mess, leaving you with a clean, healthy and better-smelling home.
Discover four great reasons to make the switch to green cleaning today and rest easy knowing you are protecting yourself, and the health of your family and planet.
1. You’ll enjoy cleaner air without using products containing artificial fragrances
That’s because synthetic chemicals such as phthalates and parabens have been linked to cancer and other conditions such as allergies, skin irritation, triggering asthma symptoms, and hormone disruption. They’re also found in conventional cleaning products such as your laundry detergent or fabric softener — which means that every time you do a load of laundry, you’re releasing these harmful chemicals into the air around you.
2. You’ll avoid spreading allergens throughout the home
There are many reasons to start green cleaning in your home, but one of the most important is that it helps prevent allergens from spreading throughout the home. Allergens are spread by dust mites and pet dander (such as cat or dog hair). If you have allergies, then this can be a big problem for you. Green cleaning products are great for cleaning up allergens because they don’t contain harsh chemicals that would irritate your respiratory system if you breathed them in.
3. You’ll reduce your environmental impact by using green cleaning products
Green cleaning products are made with plant-based ingredients that don’t stain, smell bad or leave a residue. In addition to being safer for the environment (most contain no petroleum-based ingredients), they’re also gentler on fabrics and can be used on most surfaces without the risk of harsh chemicals seeping into them. These green cleaning products are mostly biodegradable, in terms of their ingredients and packaging, so they don’t contribute to landfill waste either — it’s a win all around!
4. Green cleaning is a way to protect yourself, your family and the environment
Going green is more than just about making sure you’re doing your part to protect the planet. It’s about protecting yourself and your family from harmful chemicals, as well as helping to keep our air and water clean. It’s also about being kind to your skin because it reduces the risk to irritation. Green cleaning products are made from renewable resources, so they’re good for the environment and safe for you.
