What does “green” cleaning mean?

What does green cleaning really mean and does it work?
First, the use of the word “green” is not regulated, so it is often over-used and causes confusion. However, when it comes to cleaning here is what it means to us:
First – non toxic and biodegradable. A green cleaner is not toxic to you or animals, and it is readily biodegradable. That doesnt mean green products are 100% safe – you wouldnt drink them! – but in comparison may household chemicals are quite dangerous and potentionally toxic.
Second – les irritating formulas. The green products we use have chemicals that are less irritating to you and the environment compared to traditional formulations. Our bathroom and kitchen cleaner is made by Seaside Naturals and is made up of 100% natural ingredients including lavender, eucalyptus, tea tree oil, borox, vinegar and alcohol.
Third – They are not tested on animals.
Fourth – Most of these formulas are concentrates and/or come in bulk so that we have been able to reduce waste from excess packaging.
Do green products really work? After some trial an error, we are confident that our products work really well, if not better, than their more harmful couterparts!
