As St. Patrick's Day approaches, it's time to think about how you can make your cleaning more sustainable. There are several ways to do this, and by making sustainability a priority all year round, you can help make a difference in the environment.
Many people think that "green" and "clean" are mutually exclusive - but they don't have to be! Using eco-friendly cleaning products and practices, you can have a green St. Patty's Day. Not only will you be doing your part to help the environment, but you'll also be setting an excellent example for others.
Natural, eco-friendly cleaning products are one of the best ways to clean with green for St. Patrick's Day. These products are often just as effective as their traditional counterparts, but they have a lot of additional benefits. For one, they're better for your health. Conventional cleaning products often contain harsh chemicals that irritate your skin, eyes, and lungs. They can also off-gas into the air, causing indoor air pollution. On the other hand, eco-friendly cleaning products are made with natural ingredients that are gentle on your skin and won't cause indoor air pollution.
In addition to being better for your health, eco-friendly cleaning products are also better for the environment. Many traditional cleaning products contain chemicals that can pollute waterways and harm wildlife. Eco-friendly cleaning products are made with biodegradable ingredients that won't contaminate waterways or harm wildlife. And because they're not made with harsh chemicals, they're less likely to end up in landfills.
You can find natural, eco-friendly cleaning products at most major retailers. However, if you want to be sure you're getting a genuinely eco-friendly product, look for products certified by organizations like Green Seal or the Environmental Protection Agency's Design for the Environment program. These programs certify that products meet specific standards for being eco-friendly. Or you can call your local Anago franchisee to learn how we green clean. Here’s a sneak peek:
