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 take 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 manufactured manufactured green products that are healthy for the environment. They may want to avoid phosphates, chlorine, artificial fragrances, and artificial colors. There are a lot of choices now on the market that offer healthier ingredients.

Many cleaners on the market now are also marketed as being biodegradable. Other cleaners have ingredients that are grown organically or using sustainable farming practices. Others may certify that their items are fairtrade, meaning that the product meets certain environmental and labor standards by those who produced it.

Other cleaning products may use recycled packaging or donate a portion of their profits to environmental causes. Whatever choices you make about your cleaning supplies, there is a huge variety of environmentally friendly choices for those interested in green cleaning.

We use only green cleaning supplies because we are committed to maintaining the environment, but also because we believe that whatever you place in your home and food is processed through your body's tissues and organs. We are all about a healthy body, mind, and home!
