Eco-Friendly Cleaning Products
Eco-friendly cleaning supplies have risen in popularity over the past decade. They have proven that they are here to stay, while chemical cleaning agents are on the way out.
Leading Australian businesses are paving the way by using eco cleaning products. The trend reflects amongst consumers and their attitudes. Society is aware of how vulnerable the environment is to harsh chemical cleaning products. Chemical cleaning agents can range from household cleaners to industrial glass cleaner. The health benefits gained from using eco-friendly cleaning solutions, are becoming more publicised. People will always desire the healthier alternative for their personal use.
Society has become aware of the multiple side-effects chemical toxins have on the environment. They increase smog and reduce the quality of drinking water, toxic for native animals.
Harsh chemicals like Nitrogen, phosphorus and ammonia are present in many chemical cleaners. Including bathroom cleaners, dishwasher cleaner soap and many other common cleaning products. This is an issue as many chemical cleaners are flushed down drains. As families and business clean their properties, they are unwittingly contaminating the drain water.
Some chemicals are removed by water treatment plants before they enter the natural environment. However, nitrogen, phosphorus and ammonia are not among those filtered.
As these chemicals build up in waterways they change the environment in different ways. They can result in an overbalance of some species through excessive plant growth. This reduces the population of other species, leaving an unbalanced ecosystem.
When the hyper nourished plants die off they then deplete the oxygen in the water. This causes further harm to the other plants and animals. Over time the water becomes unsuitable for drinking, cooking and swimming.
