Consider Using Eco-Friendly Cleaning Products in the New Year to Go Green
Posted on November 09 2022
As we enter the new year, it's important to reflect on the past and set our sights on a brighter future. Part of that means making changes in our lives that will have a positive impact on the world around us. Thankfully, sustainability and planet consciousness is becoming a more common conversation topic. Ways in which we can be more eco-friendly are often discussed surrounding topics including fashion, technology and everyday materials.
However, one category that is often overlooked is cleaning products.
Cleaning products are often made with harsh chemicals that can be harmful to the environment. When these products are used, the chemicals can run off and pollute waterways. They can also contribute to air pollution. In some cases, chemicals in cleaning products can be harmful to people's health.
Luckily, eco-friendly cleaning products exist. They are a great way to improve your carbon footprint and be more sustainable. Eco-friendly cleaning products are made from natural ingredients that are not harmful to the environment, making your conscious cleaning guilt-free.
At Urban Ethos, we strive to source and craft revolutionary cleaning products and kits that are less harmful towards the planet. We want to help improve consumer shopping habits, especially those who mindlessly grab cleaning products containing harmful chemicals straight off the supermarket shelves.
How can cleaning products be environmentally friendly?
Although it seems impossible, it's true that cleaning products can be environmentally friendly.
Eco-friendly cleaning products often come in concentrated forms. This means that you can use fewer products to achieve the same amount of cleanliness. Products including our eco-friendly bathroom cleaning tablet, floor cleaning tablet and multipurpose cleaning tablet dissolve in water and form an extensive amount of cleaner to last a long time. This is better for the environment and your wallet, as well.
Eco-cleaning products don't consist of the nasty chemicals or toxins found in ordinary cleaning products. Many of the ingredients are biodegradable, so they won't end up harming our planet.
You can also find eco-friendly cleaning products that come in reusable or biodegradable packaging. Eco Turtles' cleaning tablets mean that there is minimal packaging and maximum cleaning effect. Place a cleaning tablet in a reusable spray bottle, and clean away to your heart's content!
Why should I use eco-cleaning products?
1. They’re better for the environment
As mentioned, eco-cleaning products are better for the environment than traditional cleaning products. They often contain fewer harmful chemicals, are made from renewable resources, like plants. Eco-cleaning products are often biodegradable, meaning they won’t linger in the environment after you’ve used them.
2. They’re better for your health
Eco-cleaning products are far better for your health than traditional options, as they contain fewer harmful chemicals that you inhale and touch while cleaning. In fact, some eco-cleaning products consist of ingredients that are actually good for your health, including essential oils.
3. They work just as well (if not better) than traditional cleaning products
Despite what you may think, eco-cleaning products can actually work equally as efficiently – if not far better – than traditional cleaning products. They’re just as effective at removing dirt and grime and they don’t require the use of harsh chemicals to work effectively.
