Did you know that the average American throws away 185 pounds of plastic every year? We don’t really think about how much plastic products we use on a day-to-day basis, because the material is so pervasive in our society. What’s more, because plastic doesn’t biodegrade like plant-derived materials, cleaning products and the packaging they ship in deserve to be viewed with a very critical eye. Do we really need so many unnatural materials in our lives?
There are many benefits of opting for renewable cleaning products like the ones available from Natural Visions. First and foremost, the products used to clean your home invariably leave traces of their chemicals behind, even after using hot water and sanitation practices. This means that, whether you like it or not, there is going to be at least some residual cleaning product on the floors you walk on, the countertops you use, the mops you clean with and the clothes you wash in the washing machine. So why not make sure that residual product is natural versus synthetic?
Consider also how to best manage your own consumption of plastic. Wouldn’t it make more sense to use refillable, reusable containers that are well made? This way, you can simply mix more concentrate into the same container and save yourself from wasting yet another spray bottle, which may find it’s way to a lake or stream near you. Finally, think about how much better it feels to make responsible, informed decisions about how you spend your money when you purchase the things your household needs to operate efficiently. Most people want to leave the world in a better place than it was when they got here, which gives more importance to choosing natural versus synthetic cleaning products.
The LeverEdge can assist with all of your household cleaning product needs. And, because Natural Vision products are made with at least 90% natural ingredients, you can rest easier knowing that you’re doing your part to keep your home as free from synthetics as possible.
