Green Cleaning: Why does is matter?

In today’s society, many people have been hopping aboard on the “going green” trend. In fact, recent studies show that 55% of consumers are interested in, and actively seeking out green products and services. We are all trying to make efforts to recycle more, use renewable energy, and live an overall more sustainable lifestyle. However, one area that is often overlooked is the importance of using cleaning products that are environmentally friendly. Green cleaning is not only essential for the environment, but for our overall health as well. Let’s take a deeper dive into what exactly green cleaning is, and why it is important.

What is Green Cleaning?

Green cleaning is using products and methods that are safe for the environment and do not emit any pollutants. Essentially, this means avoiding products that contain toxic chemicals. Green cleaning can also refer to the way that these products are manufactured, packaged and distributed. You may see these products labeled on the shelf as “green seal” or “safer choice.”

Why is it important?

There are many harmful synthetic compounds found in conventional cleaners that are released into the air, water, and our bodies.  When choosing brand name cleaners in the grocery store, many of them will not only be toxic but also contain synthetic fragrances. These fragrances are often derived from petroleum-based chemicals which can alter hormones and cause issues such as cancers, neurological disorders, learning disabilities, allergies, and more. By using green products, you can reduce your risk of these hazardous health effects. They are made to reduce pollution in our water, maintain better air quality, and reduce exposure to allergy and disease-causing substances.
