EWG's Guide to Green Cleaners
The Environmental Working Group is concerned about toxic substances found in household products that we use every day, which are linked to health problems, including asthma, allergies, and cancer.
The EWG has created an online guide, EWG's 2012 Guide to Healthy Cleaning, which rates over 2000 household products with grades for safety from A to F.
Some substances to avoid include formaldehyde (a carcinogen), 1,4-dioxane (a suspected carcinogen), chloroform (a suspected carcinogen), benzalkonium chloride (can cause asthma), and sodium borate (can disrupt the hormone system.)
Some green brands they recommend include Green Shield Organic and Whole Foods' Green Mission.
