Last month, the Environmental Working Group released their “2012 Guide to Healthy Cleaning,” safety ratings for over 2,000 cleaning products. The cleaning product categories included in this database are: Air Fresheners, All-Purpose, Bathroom, Dishwashing, Floor Care, Furniture, Kitchen, Laundry, and other. This latest guide joins the ranks with EWG’s “Skin Deep: Cosmetic Safety Database,” “Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce,” and several other tools and resources they have created to promote informed consumerism and keep us safe from harmful chemicals in our everyday products.
