Are Green Cleaning Products as Effective as Regular Products?

These days, many of us are thinking about ways to lessen our impact on the environment. To this end, environmentalism affects the way many people live their lives, but it also affects their shopping habits. Purchasing green products instead of traditional cleaners is a great way to have a positive impact on the environment. But are green cleaning products as effective?
