Go Green for Spring Cleaning

March starts on Tuesday! This month brings us the official start of spring, more and more green foliage, and the urge to spring clean after a long, hard winter.

If you shop with us, then it is likely you are an environmentally conscious individual. You may try and avoid certain ingredients that are found in food, support farmers and artisans that are environmental stewards of the land, and use green cleaning products because they are better for you, your family, and the environment.

According to the Environmental Working Group, “U.S. law allows manufacturers of cleaning products to use almost any ingredient they wish, including known carcinogens and substances that can harm fetal and infant development.” Therefore, we select products from companies like Dr. Bronner’s and Seventh Generation who make green cleaning products that are safer for your family. Because just like our Clean Eating Promise with our food, we also have high standards when it comes to our cleaning products we offer to our customers. This means you can shop with confidence.

Dr. Bronner’s

If you read my post last week, then you will already know my love for Dr. Bronner’s products. Their motto is: treat the Earth like home. They support regenerative organic agriculture, their packaging is 100% post-consumer recycled plastic, and they are on their way to near-zero-waste. All their products we sell are awarded an “A” in safety and environmental concern from the Environmental Working Group. This means there are few/no known or suspected hazards to health or the environment, and that they have a good ingredient disclosure.
