Overview of eco-friendly cleaning
Green cleaning seems to be all the rage now. But it wasn't always that way.
For years, people unknowingly exposed themselves to harmful chemicals and toxins as they cleaned homes, offices, retail stores, factories, schools, warehouses and almost everywhere else where we live, work and play. The practice was not only harmful to people but to the environment as well. Even today, without proper disposal, some of the more potent chemical cleaners can be toxic to fish and wildlife.
Nowadays, consumers have better — and healthier — choices for how to clean in an eco-friendly way. There’s lots of information available about how to make your own natural cleaners. If you’re not into the DIY thing, you can look for certain brands and labels to guide your search for green cleaning products.
