Cleaning with a Conscience
The challenge of going green
Green cleaning is the process of choosing cleaning products that are better for both people and the planet.
Switching to green cleaning products is good for the health and wellbeing of people, and it also prevents unnecessary chemicals from being released into the environment.
In an ideal world, we would easily be able to tell which products are toxic and which ones are better for people and the environment. In the real world, though, assessing cleaning products so that you can make good decisions is not always easy.
The challenge is largely due to two main reasons:
Greenwashing is rampant in this field. Countless products have vague marketing terms such as “eco-friendly” or “natural.” These are so meaningless that even in the United States, the FTC has issued guidance against making general environmental benefits claims.
To fully evaluate a product, you need to know all of the ingredients and how they might interact with each other. Many companies do not fully disclose their ingredients, which makes evaluation about the health and environmental impacts difficult. Even if the company did disclose all ingredients, you would have to be knowledgeable about the chemicals to understand how they interact.
This is why it’s better to look at independent, third-party data when making decisions about the green cleaning products that you should use.
If you have an environmental conscience, chances are you are pretty fed up with the way most people treat the environment. They still use plastic bags, non-environmentally friendly products and harsh chemicals on their gardens to name a few. It’s like they are oblivious to the state of the natural world.
Have you ever stopped to think why though? Understanding why people behave the way they do is important in being able to get them to change their ways.
Why use Greener Cleaning products?
Easy to switch to green
As effective as non-green cleaning options
Using greener cleaners is one of the simplest, most basic changes you can make in your everyday life to reduce toxins in your home and lessen your environmental impact. In a nutshell, conventional cleaners are one of the main causes of low indoor air quality, which can exacerbate asthma or irritate those with sensitive respiratory systems, and is a direct contributor to water pollution (everything you wash down the drain ends up in our lakes, rivers and streams). Children and babies, pets and the elderly are especially susceptible to the chemicals found in many common cleaners.
