At A Touch of Class, we are committed to using only products that meet the most rigorous environmental standards in our washing and dry cleaning services. But sometimes, clients ask us if using eco-friendly laundry products is really all that important. After all, does it really matter if your soap will biodegrade or not? The answer is yes, and in more ways than one!
While you may not realize it, the detergents and cleaning products we use on our clothes leave a thin, invisible residue that sticks to clothes even after they come out of the dryer. While it may seem solid, skin can actually act like a sponge for chemicals, and your clothes stay on your skin for almost every minute of every day. So, what you use in the wash ends up affecting your internal health as well. Eco-friendly products do not contain the same toxins and are less damaging than their chemical counterparts.
For The Environment
Those chemicals do not just end up in your body, as they also make it to our water supplies and surrounding environments. Laundry products seep out of wastewater and into the water table at large, contaminating streams, rivers, and even run off into the ocean. It goes without saying that once there, those chemicals wreak havoc on the animals, plants, and ecosystems they touch. Eco-friendly products are designed to break down quickly, preventing large-scale pollution and avoiding damage to the environment.
