Green cleaning means using less toxic cleaning products that are safer for people, animals, and the environment in homes, schools, and workplaces. Green cleaning practices can provide improved indoor air quality, reduce health risk from exposure, and protect the environment, while maintaining a healthy level of cleanliness and disinfection.
Going green means that it must be accessible to all including corner store shoppers. To that end, we promote and advocate for solutions that are readily available, affordable (cost neutral or cheaper) and effective. See chart on reverse side for Home SAFE Home cleaning solutions.
Why Go Green?
Many of the cleaning products we use every day can be harmful to people, animals and the environment in the manufacturing process and disposal. Chemicals in cleaning products can cause skin, respiratory and allergy distress, cancer, and reproductive harm. Even anti-bacterial soaps, sponges and scrubbies are harmful. They kill bacteria essential to intestinal tract, hinder production of vitamins that protect your mouth and skin, and inhibit immune system development.
