Common cleaning products that are known for “killing 99.9% of all bacteria,” are full of ingredients that are not only harmful to our personal health, but also the health of our planet.
Ingredients like ammonia, chlorine bleach, formaldehyde, phthalates are hazards to our health. Respiratory irritation, skin allergies and even hormone disruption. Not to mention the environmental pollution these ingredients cause; as these chemicals are washed down drains, they are contaminating water sources and harming aquatic life.
Choosing to remove these toxins from your home not only protects your family, but also minimizes the environmental impact. Cleaning shouldn’t be dangerous and it doesn’t have to be. However, knowledge is power and as a society, we are having to re-learn what clean means.
Educating yourself about product labels is the first step, as many large companies are guilty of greenwashing. These dishonest “green” claims on the front of bottles are often paired with cautionary warnings on the back of bottles.
hyve takes cleaning back to the way it was meant to be – without the use of harsh chemicals. Cleaning the way Mother Nature intended, with biology, not chemistry.
