What is Green?
Green is an environmental term defined as “products or services that have a lesser or reduced effect on health and the environment when compared with competing products or services that serve the same purpose.” Green is a comparative term. For instance, green cleaning products are effective at cleaning, but have a reduced negative impact on the environment when compared to non-green products.
Green cleaning can reduce your costs since it reduces the non-renewable resources required to maintain a clean environment. This leaves more resources available for future generations, as well as lowers consumer health risks due to dangerous by-products which can be left behind when traditional cleaning products are used.
In short, green cleaning is cleaning that creates a safer, healthier environment for people, while lowering the risk of negative environmental impact.
