Common Objections to Buying Green Products

Common Objections to Buying Green Products

These are the most common objections I hear from people about why they do not want to change from buying household cleaning products.

~Natural doesn’t work as well
~It is too expensive.
~I can buy it easier at the grocery store.
~I don’t believe these other products are harmful.

While there are some of the natural products that don’t work well and may be expensive, this is not true for all products. And while you may find it is easier for you to pick up products from the store, there is a hidden cost of doing so which includes extra fuel consumption and more money spent per usage so there is more spent over the long term. (See the previous blog on How Can Cleaning Products Make a Difference in the Environment.) For those who don’t believe that products made from chlorine and ammonia and similar chemicals are not harmful, they need to check out more of the statistics on illness and death caused by these chemicals.

Now you don’t have to choose between doing good for the planet and doing good for yourself. Shaklee’s Get Clean products meet all the requirements to create a safe environment and to be economical too.

Here are the reasons why:
