P2 House | Green Cleaning

Eliminating the use of toxic chemicals in cleaning products improves indoor air quality, reduces health and environmental risks, and diminishes the amount of hazardous waste generated at home. Green chemistry (also known as sustainable chemistry) involves creating chemical products and processes that reduce or eliminate the use of toxic chemicals and generation of hazardous substances.

Benefits of green chemistry technologies include:

  • Reducing waste and eliminating costly treatments for cleanup of toxic chemicals
  • Inherently safer products with less harmful health and environmental effects
  • Reduced use of energy and resources
  • Healthier workplaces and homes
With more than 85,000 industrial chemicals available for use today, it is difficult to mandate safety testing on even the most regularly used items such as shampoos, detergents and cleaning products. The Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA’s) Safer Choice program helps consumers identify products that perform well, are cost effective and are safer for the environment. These products have been tested and you can identify them by the Safer Choice label. Learn more about how to choose Green Cleaners | View Safer Choice Product Listing >
