American retail stores often hold a dizzying amount of cleaners in different colors and brands and bottles and sizes, for every type of household chore imaginable. How do you know which products are safe to buy? When you look at the shelf, are you thinking about the health risks associated with each flashy font? Why aren’t the environmental costs listed in the price? Can you confidently pronounce each of the ingredients, or better yet, understand what they do?
There are many eco-friendly cleaners that avoid toxic ingredients, and each year more and more green alternatives are added to the market. It’s important for consumers to recognize the available options and make educated decisions on which products are safe for your family, health and enviroment.
