Are environmentally friendly cleaning products as healthy as you think?

When it comes to choosing the right products we put faith into the environmentally friendly companies and assume that all their products are safe – NOT SO!

The ewg, which stands for ‘The Environmental Working Group’ can be found here  They are a group determined to for people to have healthier lives and a healthier envieonment by screening the products being sold.  They rate products from A to F, A being the healthiest and F being the most dangerous as far as cancerous and damaging the environment.  Looking at their conclusions on the products I myself have been surprised, below I have listed the good choice for the common cleaning products that are used.


To summarise ecover have come out the best with their only lowest score a C and on only 2 products.  Method have come out the worst with scores as low as F and only 3 best products with a B, they had no A products.  Earth friendly had 13 ok products but with 17 products ranging from C-F.
