PLANET PALA – GREEN LIVING: USING GREEN CLEANERS

GREEN CLEANERS CAN LEAD TO A HEALTHIER HOME
Some cleaning products can cause eye, skin, or respiratory irritation, or other health issues.
Look for these logos: Safer Choice; EWG Verified; Good Housekeeping Green; Natural Products Association Certified

SIGNAL WORDS TO AVOID
Toxic; flammable; corrosive; irritant; caution; warning; danger; poison

Be careful of greenwashing: Just because a package says environmentally friendly, eco-safe, organic, natural, or green doesn’t mean it is.

Signs of greenwashing:
• No proof
• Vagueness
• Irrelevance
• Lesser of two evils
• Fibbing
• False labels

Instead look for:
• Biodegradability
• Low- toxicity
• Low VOC
• Hypoallergenic
• Chlorine- free
• Non-toxic
• No ammonia
• Reusable/ reduced/ recyclable packaging
• Use of renewable resources – solvents made from citrus/ seeds/ vegetable/ pine oils

TIPS ONLINE
There are many recipes available online. Just do a quick search for what you need to be cleaned!
