Benefits of eco friendly cleaning products
Posted on March 29 2022
We all need to do our part when it comes to protecting the environment, with eco friendly cleaning products a great way to drastically reduce environmental damage due to keeping our homes & workplaces clean. Cleaning isn’t just about refreshing our immediate space but about cleaning the planet as well. There are so many reasons to switch to a low waste lifestyle— for the home and in every other facet of our lives.
For one, the production of plastic generates an enormous amount of greenhouse gas emissions, and plastic can take centuries to break down in landfill. According to WWF, Australians use 130kg of plastic per person each year and only 12% is recycled. The more single-use plastic we contribute, the greater our carbon footprint, the more catastrophic the effect of climate change on the future of the planet.
Considering most plastic relies on crude oil in its manufacturing process, and crude oil is not a renewable resource, it’s safe to say that plastic is anything but sustainable. Not only does our consumption of plastic affect the environment, but the other inhabitants of our planet. In fact, 70% of loggerhead turtles found dead in Queensland have eaten plastic.
Mistaking plastic items such as plastic bags for jellyfish, the turtles wrongly believe they are full and die of starvation. It’s not just plastic that accounts for this destruction, but chemicals play a huge role in polluting our atmosphere and oceans.
Non-biodegradable cleaning products can have a profound impact on marine life. That's why at Urban Ethos, we’re proud to say our eco-friendly cleaning products are free of toxins and nasty chemicals. Change doesn’t happen overnight, and making a difference starts with the small decisions we make everyday.
