Shop for Cleaning Products That Contain Less Toxins
Shopping for cleaning products that contain less toxins is both good for the environment and for your health. Some cleaning products contain chemicals that may irritate your eyes or skin or cause respiratory issues. In addition, some cleaning products are “hazardous” and require proper disposal.
We know it can be overwhelming to choose the right product when shopping, so we suggest referencing the EPA’s list of Safer Choice-Certified Products. The EPA’s Safer Choice Program “certifies products that contain safer ingredients for human health and the environment.” If that list is still too much, they have another list of Recommended products. This list identifies credible ecolabels and breaks it down into categories such as custodial, electronics, etc.
Or if you want to really know and control what goes into your cleaning products, consider making your own. White vinegar, lemon and baking soda can go a long way! Check out this piece for some quick and simple recipes.
There is so much work to do to heal our planet that it can feel overwhelming to determine where to start. That’s why 7th Generation Advisors launched the Personal Climate Action Center, a new initiative designed to encourage people to take individual action against climate change.
At 7th Generation Advisors we
are diligently working with scientists, policymakers, activists and
clean tech companies to create a clean energy economy for all, to reduce

generations into the future. We care about the future of our planet.
