At INDIGOGreen we feel like everything should be Green Clean. Recent studies have suggested that cleaning supplies have been suspected of causing human health problems.
"Indoor Air Pollution: Cleaning Up Cleaning Habits.
Most people spend more than half of their lives indoors. The significance of indoor air-quality, has become more important in recent years as a result of efforts to make our homes more energy efficient. As we tighten up our homes to prevent heat exchange, we also prevent air exchange and pollutants released into the home environment are trapped for long periods of time. Our home products like cleaning agents, aerosols, air fresheners, and disinfectants contribute to the problem. These products may also contain hidden cancer-causing ingredients.", Samuel S. Epstein, M.D. Cancer Prevention Coalition.
That being said....why risk it?
We carry a variety of companies that we feel fulfill our criteria as a safe company and product.
