6 Benefits of Using Eco-Friendly Cleaning Products

The cleaning products that are used in your home can negatively affect your health, safety and your environment if not chosen carefully. Many popular household cleaners contain harsh chemicals that can be hazardous to your health and harmful to the environment. If you’ve been thinking about making the switch to more eco-friendly products, here are just a few of the reasons why using green products can be beneficial.

1. They are Safer
Many commercial cleaning products are loaded with toxic chemicals that are hazardous to your health as well as the environment. Most eco-friendly cleaning products are made from all-natural and plant-based ingredients that do not contain any toxic chemicals so you will keep your home safe and your family healthy while doing your part in protecting the environment. If you make cleaners yourself at home with simple ingredients, you can ensure that you know exactly what is going into your cleaning products.

2. Easy on the Wallet
Making your own cleaning products at home with simple ingredients can save you money. Many homemade cleaners are made with cost effective supplies such as baking soda, vinegar, alcohol, lemon, and essential oils. A quick browse on Pinterest or Google will lead you to eco-friendly recipes for making your own cleaners for everything from all purpose cleaner, to glass cleaner, laundry soap and more!

3. Better Air Quality
Many of the ingredients in chemical cleaners are hazardous when inhaled and they can cause eye, throat and nose irritation as well as headaches, dizziness, and respiratory issues. Using eco-friendly and green cleaning products will keep those harmful chemicals out of your home and your lungs.

4. Helpful to the Environment
Eco-friendly products are safe, biodegradable, non-toxic, and made with sustainable packaging – which means they don’t harm the natural environment and they are good for the planet. Because green cleaning products are environmentally friendly, they can help fight climate change and ozone depletion as well as help decrease both water and air pollution.

5. Healthier for your Children
Your children are exposed to all of the surfaces of your home, particularly small children who crawl on the floor and frequently place household objects in their mouths. You can protect them from ingesting hazardous chemicals by switching to eco-friendly cleaning products that aren’t harmful to their skin or bodies.

6. Performance
Contrary to what many people believe, green cleaning products can get the job done just as well (if not better!) than traditional chemical cleaners, without the hazards to your health. It’s a win-win!
