Do you know the effects of chemicals in household cleaning products? Traditional cleaning products contain many harmful ingredients and substances that are harmful to our health and the health of the planet. These many products used daily produce considerable pollution for the environment, and most are used daily in our homes without even knowing their true harmful impacts.

3 good reasons to use green cleaning products

3 good reasons to use green cleaning products

Reason #1: Say goodbye to chemicals!

Prolonged use of chemicals can have long-term adverse health effects. Did you know that traditional detergents and disinfectants usually contain formaldehyde, a chemical ingredient that can lead to illness, chronic skin irritation or skin burns? Traditional multi-purpose cleansers, on the other hand, may contain toluene, a neurotoxic product that can cause fatigue, dizziness, and memory problems. In short, these chemicals can have very negative effects on your health, so imagine what they can do to the environment as well. Choosing eco-friendly and environmentally friendly cleaning products means saying no to toxic products that can be dangerous to the members of your household and the planet. You will also have healthier air in your home with natural cleaning products, compared to using harmful cleaning products that tend to pollute the air rather than clean it.

Reason #2: 100% effective and concentrated!

Some people still have the perception that green cleaning products are less effective than traditional products on the market, which is totally false! Often made with natural ingredients such as essential oils, their cleaning power is limitless! From the very first time you use natural household products, you will see that they are very effective and that they clean your surfaces just as well. As a bonus, since they are from natural sources and therefore safe, they are also extremely versatile. You don't need 12 products under your sink! Plus, they smell so good that they will leave your home smelling fresh and clean. We swear, trying them is adopting them!

Reason #3 Much better for the environment!

It goes without saying that eco-responsible cleaning products are the best way to preserve the health of our planet. Where do you think the phenomenal quantity of chemicals that are used every day can be found? Where do you think the tons of non-recyclable containers often used to package all these harmful products end up? Well, they're leaking into nature, into our rivers and into the water table. And if they end up in the water table, we understand that they will come back to us sooner or later. The use of environmentally friendly cleaning products reduces toxic waste in the environment. At Pro-Terre, we find it essential to find greener solutions to traditional products to allow you to live a greener lifestyle and of course, live in a healthier environment!
