Did you know that the average household uses 40 pounds of household cleaning products per year? And that your indoor air is likely more polluted than the air outside your home – even if you live in a large city? Considering that we probably clean our homes and businesses regularly and spend nearly 90 percent of our life indoors, that’s a serious concern!

You’ve probably learned by now that there’s quite a bit of environmentally-friendly or “natural” products out there and seemingly more on the market every day.

You can use your power as a “green consumer” to dictate environmentally-friendly products.
