We are all living in the environment that is becoming increasingly polluted, yet not many of us question the simplest things, like what is in the cleaning products that we use to spruce up our homes.
When I was little my grandmothers used baking soda or lemon juice to clean bathtubs and vinegar mixed with cold water to clean the floors. Now every supermarket is stacked up to the nines with all kinds of products to help us clean our abodes, all the while filling up our homes with toxic fumes and endangering our children.
Yet, where there is a will, there is a way and if you want to make a conscious choice about using the non-toxic and environmentally friendly cleaning products, look no further than an American brand called Method, which is making eco cleaning waves on our supermarket shelves.
Method uses ingredients that don’t come from chemical plants and they are E.O.M.E.D (equal opportunity movement for environment and design ). The company ‘recognises that no business is sustainable yet’ but they ‘aim to create positive change in our attitudes to cleaning our homes’, so they have enlisted the help of renowned environmental chemist Dr. Michael Braungart, who helps to design product using 100% recycled plastic, while creating Method non-toxic cleaners that biograde and not degrade the Earth we all inhibit. You can also see the list of ingredients used in each particular product and an explanation why those ingredients have been chosen on Method’s Internet site.
You have a variety of choice for cleaning your bathroom, doing your laundry ( you actually use much less detergent, because Method formulas are six times more concentrated than regular brands, yet you still get pretty great result ), everyday surface cleaners for wood, leather, stainless steel, marble, granite and floors ( you just spray the surface & wipe it clean –end result is an uplifting smelling, perfect no-residue surface ), hand care (moisturising, gel and foaming formulas ) and washing up ( give the cucumber pump a go-it smells great and powers through grease with ease & I bet you wouldn’t want to use anything else ).
Every Method product uses power green technology and all the bottles have just been re-designed and made even more practical to use, while also being very pleasing on the eye, so who is to say that you can’t be consciously edgy and environmentally friendly at the same time?
