Executive Order 13101 defined green cleaning as “the use of products and services that reduce the health and environmental impacts compared to similar products and services used for the same purpose.”8 That definition is still the most common one used today.
Regarding human health, green-certified cleaning products have the following characteristics: low toxicity, they do not bio-accumulate, they are not carcinogenic, they do not contain chemicals associated with harm to the reproductive system, they are not corrosive to skin or eyes and they do not cause allergic contact dermatitis. They have a high flashpoint. Also, they are beneath the threshold for VOCs, meaning that they do not off-gas beyond the recommended level.
Green-certified cleaning products also meet environmental standards such as low toxicity to aquatic life and aquatic biodegradability. Some product certification agencies oblige green cleaning products to be highly concentrated, because such products require less energy to transport, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution; and they greatly reduce packaging, resulting in less solid waste.
