All-Natural Eco-Friendly Cleaning Product


Cleaning. Cleaning is something I do more and more, I am sure. I’m aware that not everyone likes the idea of doing everything themselves, so I rounded up some of the best eco-friendly and all-natural cleaning products available.

Before we get to the brands of eco-friendly products, let’s define what they are. The government doesn’t regulate terms like “eco,” “natural,” or “green.” How can you ensure that the product you buy is good for you and the environment?

Cleaning companies in the US are not legally required to list the ingredients of their products. This is a huge issue, particularly since many cleaning products emit volatile organic compounds, which are the building blocks for smog.

If a green product is as effective as a conventional product (which it totally is! ), then why not use one? Why would you clean your house with harsh chemicals that have labels such as ‘Warning’ or Toxic Chemicals?

Eco-friendly cleaners are non-toxic and made from organic and natural ingredients. They should also be biodegradable to minimize their negative impact on the environment.

It is important that cleaning products degrade quickly. Think of dish soap or laundry detergent. I want my products to be able to break down and not linger in the water for a long time.
