What is Green Cleaning?

Green Cleaning can have a lot of interpretations, but the main goal of green cleaning is to use cleaning solutions and methods that keep our environment healthy. There are many degrees to which homes can reach this goal.

For some homes, green cleaning means that they only use substances like baking soda, vinegar, and lemons to clean the home surfaces. Other homes may seek out commercial cleaners that are healthy for the environment. These people want to avoid phosphates, chlorine, surfactants, artificial fragrances, and artificial colors. Many cleaners on the market today are being marked as biodegradable.

Other products may be concentrated, which means less impact on the environment from packaging, wasted transport energy, and storage space.

Other cleaning products may use recycled packaging or donate a portion of their profits to environmental causes.

Green Cleaning is using products that don't endanger you, children, or the environment. This is especially important for people who have asthma or allergies.
