Although there is not an exact definition for “eco-friendly cleaning products” or “green cleaning products,” most would categorize them as products that are biodegradable, phosphate and chlorine free, and derive their ingredients from renewable sources like coconut or palm rather than petrochemicals like crude oil or natural gas. Eco-friendly products are preferred because they do not have harsh chemicals that can be harmful to humans and the environment. If there is a product available that does a good cleaning job without exuding toxins, why wouldn’t anyone want this?!
Here are some examples of every day eco-friendly cleaning products that you may want to try at your home:

It is easier than you think to live a more eco-friendly life! Just by switching out your cleaning products you can make a difference in the environment and live in a cleaner and more toxin-free home. Some benefits of making the switch…Family members are no longer breathing in cleaners lingering in the air and sitting on surfaces. Studies have shown that using a household cleaning spray, even as little as once a week, raises the risk of developing asthma. Green cleaning products can reduce the chances of developing asthma. In addition, using green products helps to 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. Many green products also use recyclable packaging which minimizes waste.
