Green Cleaning as a Healthy Summer Activity for Kids!

I don’t know about you, but if you’re anything like me, you may find it challenging at times to keep up with your home cleaning regiment in the summer –agree?  There are so many activities I would rather be engaged in, so many projects that can only be done in warmer months.  Living in the Midwest equates to a shorter summer season so I try to get in as many outdoor projects done as possible. 

This all leads back to my original question:  How do you stay on top of green cleaning routines in the summer?  If you have children, they can be a great asset in helping you keep up with the housework. 

ASSIGNING CLEANING CHORES TO CHILDREN IS HEALTHY! 

Household chores are a child’s first introduction into the realm of responsibilities.

Synthetic Laundry Detergents Wreak Havoc


Did you know that “back in the day” laundry detergents were made from animal fat and or plant based sources?  The change to synthetic ingredients came after World War II.

Human ingenuity brought about synthetic ingredients replacing the need for natural fats used in cleaning laundry.  However, as time went on, it became apparent that a primary synthetic ingredient used in laundry detergents—phosphorous—was wreaking havoc in the environment. 

Eutrophication was increasing at a rate that was not normal, nor safe.  Lake shorelines in the late 1960’s in the United States were awash with an over population of algae growth and many freshwater fish were dying due to lack of oxygen caused by the excessive algae growth. This was especially seen along the Lake Erie and Lake Ontario shorelines.

What was the cause of this catastrophe? Phosphate.  It was being leached by water treatment facilities and leaching into waterways from septic tanks.  Phosphorus works as a fertilizer and thus when introduced into waterways it quickly increased the production of algae growth.  A primary use of the phosphates was in laundry detergents. 

Thankfully, there was enough of an outcry that changes were made in the industry to greatly reduce the use of phosphates in laundry detergents.  Waterways began to see marked improvements in the reduction of algae growth and aquatic creatures were not drastically dying off.

Why this history lesson on laundry detergents?

The bottom line—what we create synthetically—has implications!!  We often do not know what those will be until time tests those inventions.   Our wonderful planet has a beautiful, balanced design that can withstand a lot, however, when we insert chemicals into the eco-system, there are bound to be negative results!

Human ingenuity, can work in concert with the eco-system when we use all natural products in our laundry detergents and other household cleaners.  

HG Labs’ family of 100% all natural cleaners are completely non-toxic and safe for the environment.  Great care has been put into bringing together quality, 100% all-natural plant-based ingredients that will not harm the environment if they pass through water treatment plants and end up in lakes or streams.
In addition, your skin will not come in contact with chemical residues from our laundry detergents, because there are no chemicals used in them! 


The next time you do a load of clothes, how confident are you that the waste water to clean your cloths is not harming the environment?  BE CONFIDENT and CHOOSE --BRIGHTLY GREEN LAUNDRY WASH!
