Decoding Eco-Friendly Cleaners: The Good, The Bad, and The Green Llama
With the rise in environmental awareness, many brands have jumped on the eco-friendly bandwagon, offering cleaning products that claim to be green and safe. But are all eco-friendly cleaners created equal? Let's dive into some common bad ingredient choices and see how Green Llama stands out.
The Not-So-Green Ingredients in Some "Eco-Friendly" Cleaners
- Phosphates: While they can effectively remove hard water minerals, they can lead to nutrient pollution in waterways, causing harmful algal blooms.
- Artificial Fragrances: Some eco-cleaners use synthetic fragrances that can cause allergies and respiratory issues.
- Preservatives: Certain preservatives, like methylisothiazolinone, can be irritants and are not always environmentally friendly.

"Having owned my residential cleaning business five years, I spent countless hours and money searching for true green cleaners that work (some pretty big popular name brands too). Always dissatisfied with them. I decided to give Green Llama a try...and wish I had found them sooner! I will retire using their products. The GLASS cleaner almost works too well. Spritz. Wipe. Zero streaks. GORGEOUS! I was stunned when the BATHROOM cleaner ACTUALLY worked to remove pink mold in the shower with minimal scrubbing after letting it sit for just a bit while tending the rest of the room. The ALL PURPOSE formula does a great job on surfaces like walls, window tracks, light switches or anywhere else it's needed. In the kitchen it really does a SUPERIOR job on tough grease! GREEN LLAMA, you rock. If you ever come up with a formula for dusting and polishing wood, I'll be the first to stock up on that too! What a joy to find cleaners both I and my homeowners love. Customer service goes above and is beyond exceptional. My sample products were stolen out of the mailbox and when I relayed that after being asked how I liked them, more were sent out immediately. 100% impressive. 5 stars one hundred times over!" - Cherly B.
"These cleaners are effective , eco friendly, and we can actually save money after reusing our bottles . After using the glass cleaner on my kitchen windows I went on to clean all my windows - Streak free and you only need a small amount-All have light clean scents - I will be using Green Llama for all my cleaning now. Great customer service is a plus !!!" - Gay H.
