With so many brands and products on the market for home care and cleaning, it can be difficult to make the choice between budget-friendly and eco-friendly. These days, many products come with claims of being ‘non-toxic’ and ‘chemical-free’, but are they really?
Here are some things to keep in mind when looking for a sustainable cleaning product.
In this case, judging a book by its cover can be helpful when choosing a ‘green’ product. Seek out products made with biodegradable or recyclable packaging. Biodegradable or recyclable packaging shows that the company producing these products are taking efforts to limit the impact their products make on the environment and its resources.
The average production of plastic bottles in the United States creates more than 2.5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide and needs more than 17 million barrels of oil a year. These numbers are hard to imagine, aren't they? That's why sustainably sourced products and materials are so important to our efforts of conserving the environment.
Look for products that are made from sustainably and ethically sourced materials. Sustainability is becoming increasingly important as we become more aware of the effects that we have on the environment.

Reading labels is always suggested for your cleaning and home products in the same way you read your labels when you buy your food.

Due to its concentrated formulation, Amway Home Care products are also kinder to your pocket, as you can use one bottle of cleaning product several times over with the correct dilution ratio.
Of course, you can’t always take someone’s word blindly. The best thing to do to be a smart consumer is to look for brands and products with third-party certifications to ensure the quality of the product you’re purchasing.
Amway Home products, for example, all come with the Safer Choice label certification provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Having this label means our products have been certified to contain safer chemical ingredients that are better for people and the environment — without sacrificing quality or performance.
