Best Eco-Friendly Commercial Cleaning Products
July 02, 2018 Leave a Comment
Eco-friendly is a buzzword that often gets thrown around without much merit. There are many companies that claim to have products that are safe for the environment, and the "green" movement certainly extends to commercial cleaning products. It's hard to know, however, if all the products that claim to be eco-friendly are actually as friendly for the environment as claims would have you believe. The question is, are there any commercial eco-friendly cleaning, disinfecting and sanitizing products that can back up their claims?
Are There Guidelines for "Green" Products?
Let's face it, many existing companies make claims that their products are safe for the environment and safe for consumers. The question is, are there any regulations in place making sure companies claiming to have eco-friendly products actually have products that are safe for the environment? The Federal Trade Commission has set guidelines for green marketing based on consumers and advocacy groups to decide on a set of guidelines that will promote fairness and accuracy in the fair marketing green products. Those guidelines aim to reduce the broad or ambiguous statements declaring products are "safe" for the environment or environmentally friendly. Some of the guidelines aimed at marketing "green" products include ensuring that all claims of a product being degradable need to be qualified. If a company claims a product is biodegradable, they need to show documented proof supporting showing the product will decompose within a year. Recycled items that do not decompose within a year do not qualify. The reason the FTC hasn't provided additional guidelines is because there is a lot of interpretation of terms like "sustainable" and "natural." Companies that bring consumers products that are eco-friendly and safe for consumers can do independent testing to verify the validity of their claims.
The Best Eco-Friendly Commercial Cleaning Products
There are commercial cleaning products that meet the understood criteria for eco-friendly. Commercial cleaning products that state they are eco-friendly include mostly all-purpose cleaners. There are some good green products that offer more specific types of cleaners, like Green Works products. Safecoat makes Safechoice Super Clean, which is a "green" all-purpose cleaner. Many of the "green" products on the market, including Safechoice, are plant-based and as such, can be advertised as safe for the environment, environmentally sound, or any of those other "green movement" buzzwords that companies often throw around to target the growing sector of consumers who are concerned with the environment.
There is nothing wrong with using commercial cleaning products that are eco-friendly, as long as you take the time to study the labels closely and read the fine print. Many products that claim sustainability can still contain chemicals that are harmful to the environment or people. Keep in mind that even if you find a great commercial cleaning product, you are going to need to purchase a variety of products to clean your entire home. This is not only costly, but if you can't be sure of the chemical make-up of the cleaners you are storing, you can't be sure how those cleaners are affecting the environment or even your family's health.
