What does it mean to be eco-friendly?

There are various different interpretations of what it means to be eco-friendly, however, one value that remains true across the board, is that eco-friendly practices are those that are ‘not environmentally harmful in any form.

From production methods, to cleaning solutions used to disinfect after procedures, it is important to be as environmentally conscious as possible to achieve a truly eco-friendly status.

There are two options when looking for eco-friendly cleaners, Natural Cleaning Products, and Eco-Friendly Chemical Cleaning Products.

What are Natural Cleaning Products?

A natural cleaning product is made from natural ingredients, and as such, contain no synthetic, or artificially made ingredients. However, a natural cleaning product, is not necessarily a chemical free one. Chemicals such as citric acid can occur naturally, which means the product will still be a Natural Cleaning Product.

What are Eco-Friendly Chemical Cleaners?

Eco-friendly cleaners are often considered to be products that are made of all natural materials, but this is not the case. An eco-friendly cleaner doesn’t necessarily mean that the product is organic, or 100% natural, which is where Eco-Point come in. Our chemical cleaning products are made from those chemicals that are not inherently harmful to the environment, meaning that they will not cause harm to the environment.

As industry leaders in designing and distributing cleaning products, we offer end-users significant advantages in terms of safety and environmental protection. A wide number of mainstream cleaning products contain detergents, preservatives, or foaming agents that may contain various toxic chemicals, which if not disposed of correctly, can cause water pollution, enter eco-systems and damage biodiversity within the environment.

What is the difference between Eco-Friendly and Natural Cleaning Products?

As mentioned, eco-friendly cleaning products, will not cause harm to the environment when being used or disposed of. However, this does not mean that an eco-friendly product will be all-natural; some artificial made ingredients are not always harmful to the environment.

On the other hand, natural cleaning products generally do not cause harm to the environment, and will not contain any artificially made ingredients.
