Green cleaning is a topic that is becoming more and more popular these days, and with good reason. Many scientists have found that traditional cleaning products can contribute to things like health problems, poor air quality and even water pollution. By replacing these traditional cleaning products with green cleaning products, not only will you and your staff feel the benefits, but so will the environment.
Here are just a few of the greatest benefits of switching to green cleaning products:
- It won’t expose yourself, your staff or your customers to harmful toxins that could affect their health.
- It doesn’t pollute ground water or soil, making it less toxic to the earth.
- Packaging materials of green cleaning supplies tend to be recyclable and biodegradable and have less of an impact on landfills.
- It won’t poison small children or animals if consumed.
Many scientific studies have shown that traditional cleaning products with harsh chemical detergents can create fumes that get into the air and can then be inhaled. Once in the lungs, those chemicals can travel to the bloodstream, affecting the central nervous system and many other major organs. This can result in dizziness, respiratory distress and asthma attacks, and long term chronic illnesses such as neurological or reproductive problems. These chemicals can also build up on door handles, sinks, faucets and counter tops where they can be absorbed by the skin and potentially cause rashes.
Traditional cleaning product chemicals are also hazardous if they go down the drain. Those harsh chemicals end up in the public water supply where, hopefully, most of it is filtered out. The run-off water that doesn’t make it to a water treatment facility can be absorbed by soil, making it too toxic for future generations to use to grow food.
The major misconception about green cleaning products is that they don’t clean as well as traditional cleaning products. Green cleaning products are extremely effective at keeping your workplace free of harmful germs, but also safe to touch and work around.
