Eco-friendly cleaning products

 

Creating an environmentally sustainable future is more important than ever before and many of us are re-examining how we use products in the context of promoting sustainability. This is especially true for cleaning products that have a damaging effect on the environment through harmful chemicals and pathogens.

Using eco-friendly cleaning products is a step in the right direction and it’s super-easy to switch over from regular cleaning products and do your part for protecting the environment. Let’s take a closer look at what the benefits of these items are and how they can be put to good use.

What are the advantages of using eco-friendly products? 

  • You have the ability to reduce the impact of harmful chemicals like petroleum, ammonia and sodium hydroxide.
  • From helping to save money to having more longevity, sustainable products are far more cost-effective when compared to regular cleaning items.
  • When using conventional cleaning products, you’re at risk of damage from chemical burns, whereas green products adhere to strict safety guidelines, so you’ll be better protected.
  • With sustainable cleaning products having detailed guidelines, you had complete transparency on ingredients and will be better equipped to use them in your eco-friendly home.

How do you determine which cleaning products are sustainable?

To find out whether a cleaning item is good for the environment, it’s worth looking for certain labels that define its purpose. We have a detailed list of eco-labels for all our products, and some are as followed:

  • Biodegradable: A product with a biodegradable label means that it can be broken down into natural materials without causing any harm to the environment.
  • BPA Free: BPA is a chemical that has been used in plastics since the 1960s and is commonly found in water bottles.
  • Compostable At Home: This label indicates a product can be broken down into its natural elements in a home composting environment.
  • Compostable industrially: A product with this label can be broken down in an industrial compost setting without leaving any toxins behind.
