Have you ever wondered how safe and eco-friendly those "green" cleaning products are on the store shelves? Green cleaning products are flooding the market and with over 80,000 chemical compounds approved for commercial purposes, it’s become harder to tell if they are truly safer. In the U.S., companies are only required to warn of a product’s toxicity. Buzz words on green products such as “nontoxic,” “biodegradable,” and “all natural” can also be misleading. It can simply mean products are made from organic materials, but still contain potentially harmful chemicals.
