Buy Cleaner Cleansers

Many common cleaning products contain hazardous chemicals that impact our health and the environment in three ways: when they are manufactured, when they are used, and when they are thrown away.

When buying any cleaning product, read the label. “Natural,” “eco-safe” or “environment friendly” doesn't necessarily mean non-toxic. Avoid chlorine, ammonia, formaldehyde, ketones, phosphates, hydrocarbons, hydrochloric acid, phenols, and artificial fragrances. If the label says, “Warning,” “Danger,” or “Poison,” choose something else. Look for products containing vegetable and fruit oils and extracts. Environmental benefits should be spelled out: “biodegrades in three to five days” is meaningful. “Biodegradable” is not.

Almost everything in your home can be cleaned with four cheap, safe, and easy-to-use ingredients you can combine yourself in no time: tap water, baking soda, vinegar, and plant-based liquid soap.
