Labels can be so confusing....you're not alone in wondering what they really mean.
Labels can be Misleading
"Natural", "Organic", "Plant-Based"
These are popping up on cleaning labels everywhere. Have you ever bought a product that seems healthy and safe only to find out it wasn't? Greenwashing is disinformation by an organization so as to present an environmentally responsible public image.
Companies with large marketing budgets can create a beautiful label that looks like everything you want it to be - natural and safe. However, on the inside it might contain some ingredients you don't want in your house, around your kids + pets, or could be bad for the environment. Be sure to read the entire ingredient list and not just buy the marketing claims.
