Eco Cleaning Products

Eco cleaning products are increasingly important in today’s society. Most people have come to realize that the health of planet earth really depends upon the ways in which we treat it. If we choose to do nothing, then pollution will make many areas of the world uninhabitable for people and animals. Plastics that have not been recycled due to toxic contamination from non-organic cleaning-product ingredients, continue to fill garbage dumps. This is just one of the many drawbacks to using non-organic or eco friendly cleaning solutions. Here are some convincing reasons for why eco cleaning products should be a priority.

A central argument for the increased use of eco cleaning products is based upon how those products physically affect consumers and domestic cleaning. Some strong, industrial grade and consumer grade cleaning agents have the capacity to wreak havoc on your skin. Many common household cleaners will cause your skin to peel. This usually occurs due to the exposure of skin to bleach. The peeling skin can last for many weeks. Eco cleaning products are all natural, so you are much less likely to experience this kind of reaction when the products do come into contact with your skin.

Pollution is an issue that continues to warner chief concern. Waterways throughout the U.S., the UK, and other countries, frequently pick up run-off and spills which come from harmful cleaning products. Unfortunately, some of this contamination might not be accidental. Studies show that there has been an increase in violations and dumping of materials during the manufacture of harmful products. This could be true for non-eco cleaning products. When waterways become polluted, animals like fish, mammals including humans, and plant life suffer. It takes a long time to completely clean a polluted water source, so choosing to only use eco cleaning products is a step in the right direction.

Every parent’s worst nightmare includes allowing their kids to become injured or worse due to exposure to a harmful product. Kids often put things in their mouths or eyes during their exploratory years. This leaves them vulnerable to getting hurt by products which are not eco-friendly. Eco cleaning products are not harmful if they are made with all natural products. However, this does not mean it is safe to ingest them. Pets often find themselves in situations where they get products in their eyes, so it is best to make sure that the products are ecologically balanced.

Many of the eco cleaning products are housed inside recyclable materials. Plastics are the most commonly recycled items. A great portion of the bottles and boxes used to house and transport the cleaning products are made from recycled materials as well. This is yet another reason why eco cleaning products are essential. Bottles which house hazardous cleaning ingredients cannot be recycled as easily, and they must be extensively cleaned. Take the time to buy eco cleaning products so that you do not have to worry about the ways in which they could negatively affect your family.

It has been a busy year!

It is our ambition, as a responsible corporate citizen, to bring technologies and expertise to the non-profit community working on climate change.

 

This year, we have supported many projects with grants and we are grateful to them for their work and feedback. 

 

We do appreciate the strong relationships that help us share knowledge within the Planet Action’s community but we have reached our quota and we are sorry to let you know that we can neither receive nor support any more projects for the time being.

 

We will let you know as soon as you can submit projects again!
