Day 20: Switch to Natural Cleaning Products

Just a few years ago it was difficult to find “green” or natural cleaning products. Now, you can go into most major grocery stores and find a decent selection of these products – and in most cases, they don’t cost that much more then traditional, chemical based products.

When choosing a green cleaning product, make sure it truly is free of chemicals and harsh ingredients. Just like all other products, don’t trust the front label. Turn it around and check the ingredient list.

Why choose a natural cleaning product: lower impact on the environment, less chemicals released into the air or poured down the drain, healthier for your family not to have all those toxins around, sends a message to manufacturers which will result in more “green” products on the market – just to name a few.
