Your cleaning products don’t simply vanish forever when they slide down the drain. They typically end up in a treatment plant. But, because treatment plants are rarely 100 percent effective in removing every last substance from water, some of these substances inevitably
end up finding their way into the environment. If you’re cleaning with truly safe substances like vinegar, this hardly matters. But if everyone is cleaning with toxic substances, the collective results could potentially be deadly to other living organisms, possibly including plankton in the water (which has seen an almost 50 percent decline globally in the recent past, according to CBC News) and perhaps then affecting countless other links in the food chain.
With so much at stake, it’s crucial for us all to give consideration to the products and methods we use for cleaning.
