There is on-going confusion about what “environmentally friendly” products really are. Consumers need “the whole story” in order to make an informed buying decision. Hopefully, the following will help to clear up some of the marketing confusion.

 

Definition of “Environmentally Friendly”

There are many factors that determine the true “environmentally friendliness” of a cleaning product. First of all, the product must perform well. A cleaning product can be very environmentally friendly, but if it does not work it serves no beneficial purpose.

An “environmentally friendly” product should be pH neutral, organic, biodegradable , and low foaming. All ingredients should be (GRAS) generally recognized as safe, non-hazardous and non-corrosive. A properly formulated cleaning product will minimize the user’s health exposure, utilize minimal amounts of water and minimize the overall impact on the environment. All ESS industrial and consumer cleaning products meet these criteria and raise the standard of performance.
