Why buy eco-friendly cleaning products?

Environmentally friendly cleaners are much better for use on hard surfaces. This is because the compounds are less corrosive and are cleaned gently without being aggressive or harmful. Environmentally friendly cleaners are also much safer for human health. Chemical-based, non-biodegradable cleaners can be caustic and release irritating fumes and allergens.

By reducing plastic, water and energy production by approximately 90%, Puracy refills are another great way to save resources and money (in fact, more than 20% per fluid ounce). Since we introduced them, these BPA-free refill containers have prevented more than 5 million bottles from reaching the environment. That's just one of the ways Puracy offsets its environmental impact. From source to bottle, Puracy is 100% vegan and cruelty-free.

We applaud all of our competitors who have opposed animal testing. Environmentally friendly cleaning products are also less hazardous to the environment. They do not contain chemicals that cause significant air or water pollution and are usually in recyclable or recycled packaging. Safer for the environment Eco-friendly cleaning products are of natural origin, are non-toxic and are biodegradable, which means that they have a lower impact on the environment.

Other cleaning chemicals may contain ingredients from non-renewable sources and have toxic effects that can harm the global ecosystem. You can choose to clean with alternatives to bleach, as well as to remove hard water stains from the bathroom without having to resort to industrial cleaners. There is a wide range of cleaning products that manufacturers advertise as environmentally friendly and healthy. When you clean with products with natural and organic formulas, you also reduce the risk of exposing yourself to toxins and harmful chemicals while cleaning in less ventilated areas.

To make it easier for buyers to identify the most environmentally friendly cleaning products, the EPA administers the Safer Choice program, which certifies products that contain ingredients that are safest for human health and the environment. Green cleaning products should not contain hazardous chemicals, so they are likely to pose fewer health risks. Using environmentally friendly cleaning products can help reduce the environmental and health problems that come with cleaning. In addition to the obvious aesthetic benefits of cleaning, eliminating dust, allergens, and infectious agents is crucial to maintaining a healthy indoor environment.

When you buy eco-friendly cleaning products or create your own, you understand much better what's being used in your home. Better air quality Not many of us like the strong smell that harsh cleaning chemicals and fragrances can leave behind. We see a lot of advertisements for chemical-free cleaning products, but chemicals are simply a reaction between two or more substances (even water can be considered a chemical). According to the Environmental Protection Agency, side effects of cleaning chemicals can include headaches, eye, nose and throat irritation, and asthma.
