The Environmental Working Group (EWG) released its Guide to Healthy Cleaning. The results really shocked me. I searched the database for some of my tried and true — and green, I thought! — cleaning products. Many of them have horrible ratings. Heck, my beloved Trader Joe’s liquid laundry detergent scored an F. Yes, an F! Turns out it’s terrible for the environment, may cause allergies, and may be an endocrine disruptor. Ugh.
How does your cleaning product stack up? Do you know? Might be worth the time to take a peek at the ratings. Me? I’m off to buy one of the six laundry detergent products that scored an A or the four products that were rated a B by the EWG. Who knew Martha Stewart would sell something so eco-friendly!
