13 Reasons Why Eco-Friendly Cleaning Products are Worth the Money


Are cheaper cleaners really worth potential health risks? Are the extra couple bucks saved worth possible damage on the environment? DEFINITELY not! Achieving a clean, green and happy home means not cutting corners. Eco-responsibility is worth it– whatever the price may be. Here are 13 reasons why eco-friendly cleaning products are worth the money:


1 | Chemicals may be unregulated

Did you know that more than 70 percent of conventional cleaning products contain chemicals and harsh agents that aren’t approved by the EPA? They aren’t approved for a reason! Make sure to educate yourself to keep your loved ones safe.

Alternative? Grab Green bridges the gap between the conventional and non-effective “green cleaners.” What are you left with? Home care solutions that are naturally-derived, eco-responsible, and work!

2 | Make your home safer

Studies have shown that using conventional household cleaning sprays, even as little as once a week, raises the risk of developing asthma. That’s nothing to sneeze at.

Alternative? Naturally-derived cleaning sprays like Grab Green’s All Purpose Cleaner packs the punch to get rid of dirt and grease without the harsh chemicals that may cause asthma. Protecting your home and the people in it is worth every penny.


3 | Protect your health

Hazardous chemicals in conventional products are often carcinogens, neurotoxins, mutagens, teratogens, or endocrine disruptors. You might find symptoms like coughing, sneezing, skin rashes and headaches mysteriously disappear once you stop using toxic cleaning chemicals. You shouldn’t have to chose between a clean home and a clean bill of health. With naturally-derived, non-toxic brands, like Grab Green, you don’t have to.


4 | Phthalates

Phthalates are harmful chemicals found in fragranced products; Di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate is listed as reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen according to the US National Library of Medicine. The worst part about this chemical is it’s lurking in or around products you may not even be aware of (like your so called “friendly” cleaning products).

Alternative? Look for brands that that use natural or non-toxic fragrances. Grab Green’s fragrances are designed to envelop you in the beauty of nature without the use of toxic chemicals. Smells like a pretty sweet deal!


5 | Clean up your indoor air

Some cleaning products go a little too far on the quest for  a cleaner home. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), which have been associated with a host of health problems like liver, kidney, and central nervous system damage, can be released some conventional cleaning products are used and stored. Even scarier … they can linger in the air long after use according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Switching to green cleaning means not taking the risk with VOCs.


6 | Keep your kids safer

Is there anything more important than your child’s safety? If you’re hesitant to switch to green cleaning for the cost or the efficacy, make the switch for the kiddos. According to the National Capital Poison Center, cleaners rank second in most common poison exposures for children and young adults. Yikes! Lower and eliminate the likelihood for accidental poisoning by cleansing your home of toxic cleaners and replacing them with eco-responsible and non-toxic brands.Get the job done without harming your family!


7 | You may be poisoning the water supply

Conventional cleaners have a pesky way of getting into our air and water supply. Switching to greener methods helps reduce pollution to our waterways and the air. Sometimes safe choices are the best choices.


8 | Breathe cleaner air

The strong odor found in most cleaning products clog the air, creating a nasty cocktail of harsh toxins and chemicals. When you walk into a home that uses a conventional cleaner you can really smell the difference. Grab Green products are ammonia free– just infused with plant-derived elements so you can feel good that what you’re using is as good for the planet as it smells.


9 | Help the environment

Many eco-friendly cleaning products are made using sustainable manufacturing practices and naturally derived, safer, non-toxic, and biodegradable ingredients that don’t negatively impact the environment.  When you choose sustainable, biodegradable products you can feel good knowing that you are positively impacting the environment.


10 | Save some money

Save money by buying eco-responsible multi-purpose cleaners that can handle many jobs around the house rather than the typical one-job cleaners.


11 | Make cleaning easier

No need to add on an extra task to the laundry list of your already busy day! ry using natural products that take care of your general cleaning needs rather than a whole arsenal of toxic products. Why buy a stain remover, laundry detergent and brightener when you can use a 3-in-1 Laundry Detergent instead? Our thoughts exactly.


12 | Know what’s in your products

Manufacturers of cleaning products aren’t required by the U.S. government to divulge ingredients; seek out brands that are transparent like Grab Green. Grab Green always offers a list of our natural ingredients and processes. No ifs, ands or buts about it.
