Green Cleaning Benefits
Cleaning is an unavoidable part of life - especially if you want to keep you and your family healthy and safe. Having a clean environment is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, as it can help protect the body from certain health issues.
Studies have shown that using a household cleaning spray, even as little as once a week, raises the risk of developing asthma.
-When you use many cleaning products, harmful chemicals are being released into the environment. This is certainly not healthy for you and the people around you to breathe in.
-When you choose to use green cleaning products, you are making a vote to protect the environment so to speak. Some conventional cleaning products contain ingredients that are toxic, hazardous, non-biodegradable, and from non-renewable resources like petroleum, so they adversely affect the earth's eco-systems.
Green Cleaning Benefits:
-Many green cleaning products — including store-bought and ones you can make at home — include pleasant natural essential oils.
-Changing to greener methods, helps reduce pollution to our waterways and the air and it minimizes your impact on ozone depletion and global climate change with fewer smog-producing chemicals.
-It's much easier to have a few products that take care of your general cleaning needs than a whole arsenal of toxic products. For example, vinegar can easily replace mold and mildew removers, window cleaners, all-purpose cleaners.
-You know exactly what the ingredients are in your cleaning recipes. Manufacturers of cleaning products aren’t required by the U.S. government to divulge ingredients. Some conventional manufacturers don't and may only list a portion of their ingredients.
