For the longest time, water and air pollution have been synonymous with big corporations and factories that dump their hazardous waste into water bodies or produce toxic chemicals that poison the environment.

We have now come to realize that it isn’t just the big names that can be solely held responsible for the water and air pollution crisis that we are facing today. Every single product that we purchase for everyday use impacts our environment in one way or another. The household cleaning products such as detergents, disinfectants, and stain removers contain phosphorus (about 30 to 40 percent of dishwasher detergents), nitrogen, and ammonia. These chemicals, among many others, are classified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as “volatile organic compoundsand affect indoor air quality and add to outdoor smog. 

When we flush these chemicals down the drain or toilets, they head to wastewater treatment facilities, where most contaminants are removed before the water makes its way back to rivers and lakes. However, not all the contaminants from these chemical products are removed. Over time, this harms wildlife and can starve marine life of oxygen

What are the safety issues that many common household cleaning products pose?

The active ingredient in most commercial disinfectants and household cleaning products is Benzalkonium Chloride (BAC). It is an ammonium compound for cleansers and detergents, which leaves toxic residue on the surfaces it has been on. These products may be effective but are highly toxic. It can cause various health concerns in humans as well as animals.

Prolonged exposure to BAC has been known to cause Allergic Contact Dermatitis (ACD), skin irritation, and other skin problems. It can also lead to respiratory disorders. As per research, BAC is linked to pulmonary toxicity and inflammation because the lungs can act as a reservoir of BAC.

Children, in particular infants and kids, are most at risk when these products are used at home. BAC can be highly harmful to pets as well. Every household should ensure they are using pet safe household cleaning products. 

Your choice impacts our environment

Every household has a choice to make. Commercial cleaning products are dangerous for the consumer and the environment, and their ill effects are beginning to show in gigantic proportions. 

We have to transition to green, organic, and natural household products, which means the products we use should have no phosphates, no chlorine, no artificial fragrances, no artificial colors, should have biodegradable or recyclable packaging and should be made from organically grown ingredients using sustainable farming practices.
