4 Advantages of Green Cleaning Products

For the last several years, green cleaning has gained more and more traction as an alternative means of cleaning your home, school, or business. At Green Girl Maid Service, we believe that using green cleaning products is the best choice for you and your family.

While there are lots of green cleaning products on the market today, we started to see a need for green cleaning products that met our high standards and all the purest, most natural ingredients.

These standards included:

  • All natural ingredients
  • No phosphates
  • No sulfates
  • No ammonia
  • No animal testing
  • No added coloring

This is when Lil’ Green Girl’s World was born. Not only do we use these cleaning products for our cleaning service clients, but we offer them for sale on our website so that you never have to settle for cleaning products that threaten the health and safety of your family.

So what were our goals when we created the Lil’ Green Girl’s World green cleaning products?

A Safer Environment for Children

 

Your children are of course your number one priority. So why expose them to toxic chemicals such as the ones traditionally used to clean your bathroom or kitchen? With green cleaning products, you can get the same cleaning power as chemical cleaners while creating a safer environment for your children.

Cleaner Indoor Air

 

Your cleaning products might just be having the opposite of the desired effect, making your air more polluted instead of more clean and pure. According to the EPA, homes that use chemical cleaning products are 2 to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air. Breathe easier with green cleaning products.

Cleaner Water Supply

 

Toxic cleaning products are not only a potential risk to your health, but they are detrimental to the environment as well. Ingredients in common cleaning products such as ammonia and phosphorous are known to make their way into our lakes and streams.

This not only poses a threat to our drinking water, but it can pollute the water that fish and other wildlife need to live. When you choose green cleaning products, you are not only contributing to cleaner water to drink and swim in, but you’re helping form a better earth for animals and plants that rely on it.

A Greener Life

 

Remember that “going green” doesn’t just mean using green cleaning products. It can mean consciously using less plastic and paper, using alternative means of transportation, and even looking for ways to cut your energy usage in your home.
