Green Products Versus Traditional Products
- Some traditional cleaning products contain ingredients that are known to have a negative impact on human health. The health of the skin, lungs, and brain can all be affected by chemicals that are currently on the market.
- Some of the ingredients in traditional cleaning products are mysteries. Companies add these chemicals because they enhance the effectiveness of the product, but the long-term effects and potential dangers are not understood.
- Green cleaning products tend to be more expensive than cheaper non-green alternatives. However, demand for green products is increasing, and more products are becoming available.
- Some green cleaners require more labor, also known as elbow grease, to create the same clean appearance of traditional cleaning agents.
