You're an Eco-Savvy Success

You're an Eco-Savvy Success

Congratulations! You're a real environmental role model, and your actions are making a difference. But are you ready to take the next step? If you haven't already, now is a great time to swap your chemical-based household cleaners for biodegradable, eco-friendly choices. It might seem next to impossible to give up your tried-and-true bottles of glass cleaner, floor polish, and foaming bathroom scrubber, but those old standbys may be doing more harm than good. While the harsh ingredients in many commercial cleansers, sprays and disinfectants are designed to make your home sparkle, they may also contribute to indoor air-pollution and ground-water contamination, as well as aggravate allergies and asthma and increase your family's risk of developing other ailments, from skin irritations to long-term lung problems. For less toxic alternatives, look for brands with an eco-friendly seal of approval. Even better, stock up on organic baking soda, white vinegar, rubbing alcohol, salt and lemons, all of which can be used to whip up germ-bashing, 100 percent natural cleaning aides.
