Why should you shop for green cleaning products online? Think about it. Any product that is provided in retail stores requires a significant investment in inventory, transportation, as well as packaging and display presentation. Furthermore the store itself consumes energy and generates waste… even when no one is in the store. All of this is impacts our environment and has a large carbon footprint. It is simply not a business model that promotes sustainability.
This is understood, even if only subconsciously. When asked “Is online shopping better for the environment than store shopping?” only 31 percent of Americans said NO in a 2009 survey published by BIGresearch.
Our green cleaning products and green janitorial supplies are eco-friendly, bio-based, biodegradable and nontoxic. Even better, just using our products promotes sustainability. The super concentrated products are diluted into reusable spray bottles. As a result our products have:
- Reduced packaging because of the super concentrated cleaners
- Reduced hazardous waste because of no petrochemical ingredients
- Reduced carbon footprint since water is not being shipped around the country
- Reduced waste since spray bottles are no longer single use
Why Shop For Green Cleaning Products Online
These eco reasons are fine and dandy, but what really matters is what is in it for you when you shop online? Generally it is not because you want to reduce your carbon footprint. Rather it is for ease, comfort, and convenience. With online shopping avoiding crowds, parking, cranky clerks, limited selection, out-of-stock items, consumption of expensive gasoline, etc. maximizes your available time.
Top 10 Reasons to Shop Online vs. Shopping In-Store
- Save on pricey gas (which reduces your carbon footprint)
- Conserve your valuable time
- The Internet never closes
- Wider selection of specialty products at your fingertips
- No waiting in line, pushing through crowds, or navigating rude shoppers
- Protect the safety of your credit card. Many online transactions are handled by PayPal. (PayPal acts as a middleman so the merchant never sees your information.)
- Avoid receipt clutter since it is all done electronically
- More resourceful
- Direct shipment of your gifts
- It’s fun and convenient!
It does not matter if you are an eco-consumer or only want to simplify your life, shopping for green cleaning products and green janitorial supplies online is the way to go.
