April 22 marks the 46th annual Earth Day which was first celebrated by the U.S. in 1970 and celebrated internationally beginning in 1990. The purpose of Earth Day is to bring attention to environmental issues throughout the world and promote eco-friendly behaviors to help preserve our natural environment. Former U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson founded Earth Day with an environmental teach-in that occurred on April 22, 1970. Earth Day is now considered the largest secular holiday and is celebrated annually in almost 200 countries around the globe.
One way that you can have an impact in the spirit of Earth Day is to adopt more environmentally friendly cleaning habits. Many typical chemical cleaners of all types contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other materials that can be harmful to the natural environment and your health. You can avoid using harmful cleaning products by switching to green cleaning products that do not contain VOCs, or by using homemade solutions and remedies.
