Eco-Friendly Products for Your Home

Written by Roxanne Ecklund on February 28, 2020

Over the last several years, society has started putting the health and safety of the environment at the top of it’s priority list. There are tens of thousands of factors that contribute to the sustainability of the environment, and ultimately the health and wellness of all mankind. You can make a difference, and so can the products you use!

At Rhino Shield, one of our top priorities is creating eco-friendly products. We’re proud to share that our products feature several different green features including low VOC (less than 100 grams per liter) and non-toxicity. They are safe for skin contact and approved for solid waste landfill disposable. Our products are nonflammable and resist both the growth of mold and mildew. Our low-e feature reduces thermal conductivity to insulate buildings and our low odor products do not pose an inhalation hazard. Most excitingly, we are proudly a member of the Florida Green Building Coalition. Rhino Shield believes companies should promote environmental consciousness and long-term sustainability, and our products are created with that in mind!

There are several other companies and products out there that also put the environment at the top of their importance list. By using these products, you can help reduce damage to our Earth and keep the planet clean, and functioning at the best of its ability.
