Harmful Effects of Non-Green Cleaning Products

29 Mar 2022 8:21 AM | Erica Winder

Conventional cleaning products often contain petrochemicals, solvents, acidic, caustic or corrosive components. After going down the drain, these elements can and do contaminate aquatic ecosystems, including the animals that live there and that can later be consumed by people. They unbalance the entire ecosystem and generate problems that are irreparable. The damage caused affects all life on the planet.

In addition, the contact with the conventional products, or with the residues left by them in the environment, can cause allergies in people with greater sensitivity or respiratory problems, such as rhinitis, sinusitis and bronchitis.

On the other hand, sustainable cleaning products are those that do not harm or minimally impact the environment. They are biodegradable and free from harmful chemicals such as sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), sodium lauryl ether sulfate (SLES) and linear alkibezene sulfate.

The use of natural green cleaning cleaning products helps to combat results that negatively impact the health of people and the entire ecosystem of the planet.
