Environmentally Friendly Ways to Clean Windows: Too often, needlessly toxic solutions are utilized for the purpose of cleaning windows, both at home and in large-scale, commercial situations. Alternatives exist that are not only potentially cheaper, but also pose much less of a hazard to human health and to the environment.
Being Environmentally Friendly At Home
Looking after a household can be a never-ending charge. Depending on the amount of people that you live with, the time spent cleaning up after people can be exhausting! Everyday cleaning is comprised of routine tasks that you will continue to do over and over again – washing up or filling / emptying a dishwasher, loading the washing machine, putting clothing out to dry and repeat. With so much in today’s world about the importance of being environmentally conscious and aware, how can we keep this in mind whilst also getting things done effectively in the household?
We’ve seen the rise in the global popularity of green and climate activists like Greta Thunberg – a Swedish teenager who continues to stress the importance of being climate conscious and aware of our global footprint. As a result, she has singlehandedly brought awareness of environmental issues/concerns to a whole new generation.
Small Changes Can Make A Difference
While it might seem like something that we as individuals cannot help with or it might seem like our input is so small that it won’t make a difference, the teachings of the likes of Greta Thunberg are that even small behavioral changes can help to be a part of a greater change. Therefore, if we in our own households can enact small changes as we go along in our daily lives, we can impact on a wider movement especially for younger generations as they become more environmentally aware as a norm behavior.
So where can we start in our homes? A great place to begin is to examine our waste disposal methods. Can that be improved? Could we be more focused on recycling, for example? As a household, do we know exactly what items can be recycled and what items cannot be recycled? It’s unlikely that we’re certain of everything, so that’s a good place to begin as a household to know fully what can and can’t be safely recycled. It will also cut down on waste costs in the long run! Less regular cleaning tasks like the cleaning of windows can also be tackled as part of this environmental drive by omitting the use of harsher chemical solutions.
