So I was recently given an opportunity to try out some Green Works by Clorox laundry detergent, as well as their all-purpose cleaner, by a company called Matchstick who does 'word of mouth' marketing.
I had already bought Green Works products many times before this opportunity came along, mostly the household cleaners.
I like them because
- The odour, if any, is not strongly laden with perfume
- They work
- They are very affordable (which can be a barrier to purchasing 'greener' cleaners)
- They are environmentally conscious
Here's some info from the company:
I like the environmentally friendly elements of this product, particularly as we are on a septic/weeping tile system here (so I am very conscious of what products we use around the house). And I also like that it works.
Clorox® is leveraging its world-class expertise in the household cleaning category to develop a new platform of natural cleaning products called Green Workstm. These products are made with at least 95% natural plant and mineral-based biodegradable cleaning ingredients and clean as well as many traditional cleaners on many soils. Green Works® products are a practical way for consumers to live a greener lifestyle without compromising performance.
All Green Workstm natural cleaners are made using plant-based ingredients derived from coconuts, as well as essential oils. The products are formulated using biodegradable ingredients, are packaged in bottles that can be recycled and not tested on animals.
In lab tests, Green Workstm hard surface cleaners clean as well as many traditional cleaners on many soils.
I was concerned with the price when I first bought it. I actually bought it because although it was selling for around $9 (way more than I would normally spend on detergent), I had a coupon for $3 off, making it close to the same price as I would spend on non-environmentally friendly detergent. This week, I noticed that the price had come down to around $6 or $7 at Real Canadian Superstore and Wal-Mart.
