Eco-Friendly Cleaning Products: Join the Latest Trend that Brings Technology, Green Cleaning, and Savings Together
December 25, 2018 Leave a Comment
We live in a time in our world where we should be concerned about the health of our environment. In fact, many different studies have shown that we have every reason to be concerned about the health of our environment. One of the biggest threats to our environment, and one not considered seriously by many of us, is the damage done to our-eco-system by products used every day in every sector of our society — cleaning products. While cleaning products are often overlooked and not thought of by many people as pollutants, quite a few of the cleaning products we use to degrease, sanitize surfaces, clean our clothes, and wash our dishes are causing harm to our water and air.
The chemicals in many cleaners, while considered effective in cleaning and sanitizing, contain common pollutants that can contribute to smog and degrade the quality of our drinking water. These same chemicals can cause health issues in humans and are toxic to animals. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), phosphorus, nitrogen, and ammonia are some of the chemicals classified as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC)
. These chemicals are considered some of the worst environmental hazards and are contained in many household and commercial cleaning products. Many companies and consumers consider these toxic products to be some of the most effective cleaners for institutional use and even home use, but that simply isn't true, and it's this lack of understanding about the dangers of toxic chemicals in our cleaning products that poses an even greater threat to the environment.
Nitrogen, phosphorus, and ammonia can be extremely dangerous to water sources in large quantities, even when they are used in household cleaning products and disposed of in a normal fashion, the way we dispose of much of our waste, by rinsing it down drains or flushing it down toilets. Yes, there are water treatment facilities that remove most of the pollutants, but those three chemicals are not removed during the waste treatment processes. This means they make their way to our bodies of water (rivers, lakes, streams) and have a negative impact on the quality of water and the surrounding plant life. Over time, the negative effects compound, creating problems for the eco-system and for people too.
Toxic-free cleaning products
can go a long way toward making changes in the integrity of our environment. Non-toxic cleaners in the household and in the workplace can reduce the risk to the environment and to the health of those who are in contact with cleaning products regularly. The problem is, there are too many companies producing toxic cleaners.
Even some companies that claim to produce green cleaning products or environmentally friendly cleaning systems aren't always delivering what they claim to deliver. Since the EPA requires the listing of any potentially harmful ingredients in a cleaning product, consumers are encouraged to pay attention to the labels of the cleaning products they purchase, even products advertised as green cleaning products. This awareness alone can cut down on the use of harmful cleaning products.
According to the EPA, the cleaning industry employs about 2.8 million janitors alone, all of whom are exposed to the hazards of commercial cleaning products. This isn't even taking into account those who perform light cleaning duties in the workplace, children exposed to these harmful chemicals in school settings, or consumers who use the products in their homes. All of these cleaning products present dangers to not only the environment but to the health of those who use them. Monitoring the products used in these settings to ensure they truly are eco-friendly cleaning products or that they are non-toxic cleaners is the first defense.
When you are educated about the potentially harmful chemicals in cleaners and know what to look for, you can make better choices when you purchase your cleaning products. This step alone goes a long way toward building a better future for the environment and our personal health.
The good news is that there is a trend toward cleaner living. People are beginning to realize that we need to do something today to protect our environment tomorrow. On-site generated eco-friendly cleaners
is one of the ways people are taking steps to protect the environment.
On-site generated eco-friendly cleaners, sanitizers, degreasers, and disinfectants are a great way to not only protect the environment and reduce health risks to the people that use them, they can save you money too. What is on-site generation? It's a technology that allows consumers to make their cleaners in their homes, in the workplace, or anywhere where the cleaners are used.
There are big advantages of on-site generation. First, on-site generation eliminates the need to transport and store harmful chemical-based cleaning products, reducing the risk of accidents involving harmful products. On-site generation also saves money because it allows consumers the opportunity to make only what they need and whenever they need it.
