Millions of gallons of household water seeps back into the ground after use. This water contains chemicals from bleaches, detergents and synthetic colors and fragrances which threaten the environment. These unnatural substances are not biodegradable and therefore build up in the underground water table and end up contaminating the ecosystem.
It is therefore important to use eco friendly detergents that are bio degradable and safe for the environment. Eco friendly detergents are both safe for the environment and safe for your family. Use plant based detergents that are not harmful.
Look out for ingredients that are not safe and avoid fragrances as they contain chemicals that may lead to bad health. Synthetic chemicals not only no no and contaminate the environment, but also cause skin irritation and other health risks. Homemade cleaning solutions such as water mixed with lemon juice or baking soda and vinegar have long proven their effectiveness. For stain removal, soak fabrics in water with either borax, lemon juice, hydrogen peroxide or white vinegar. Luckily there is a wide variety of eco friendly detergents available on the market these days for consumers to use.
Consumers interested in helping the environment should look at ingredients, not slogans. He says “Just because a product says it is natural doesn’t mean it is non-toxic”. Often labels with the word “Bio” can be misleading. They do not necessarily mean that the product contains no chemicals. So consumers are asked to carefully check labels before purchasing a product.
From time to time our drinking water has been affected, causing a multitude of problems. Every person should consider the implications of using chemical based cleaners before buying them. In this day and age, people now have a choice.
