When purchasing cleaners for your home or business, it’s important to consider how these products are made and what impact they are having on the environment. Sustainability, and conservation of our planet’s resources have become important modern issues, and we should all be playing our part to help. So when you’re out shopping for cleaning products next time, here are two things to lookout for:
Make sure they use Biobased materials
“Biobased” products are derived from plants and other renewable agricultural and forest materials, which makes them great for the environment. You should see “biobased” on the packaging if a product follows these guidelines.
Look for the USDA label
This program run by the U.S. Department of Agriculture focuses on increasing the purchase and use of bio based products. Through their careful regulation, they put their logo on products that meet their high standards of sustainability and use of renewable biological ingredients. So keep an eye out for products that are Bio Preferred.
With these two tips, you will be able to find a product that not only does it’s job well, but is good for the environment!
