Helpful Sustainable Cleaning Products Tips: 
Reduce your use of toxic chemicals by referencing warning labels while shopping for cleaning products. If the product's label states 'danger', 'caution' or 'warning' it likely contains toxins that contribute to air pollution. (Source Sensible House Cleaning Solutions)

Look for biodegradable cleaning products or make your own! Making cleaning solutions for your home is actually pretty simple and often involves household ingredients for cooking. They are safe for children and pets, cost effective and can result in better air quality in your home. (Source: Integrity Cleaning) )

Do your homework when shopping based on eco-labels. Not all eco-labels are created equal. Find out which truly indicate a safe, eco-friendly alternative by vetting them through the Eco Labels Index site.
