Cleaning that doesn't harm the earth. This tip came from a client who opened her kitchen cabinets up and showed us that she ONLY buys cleaning products from Melaleuca. "Mela what?" We said. "Oh, Mela-something." She said right back, "I just love their products. They are the only ones I use now." So, we did some digging.... Melaleuca, started in 1985, is named after the tree Tea Tree Oil comes from (which is used in many of their products), it is completely devoted to environmentally and socially sound products, cleaning and otherwise, and it is based in Idaho....
Melaleuca started small, but now they are BIG. They have a very, very large line of cleaning products as well as beauty, health, body, and pharmaceutical products. Good prices and natural ingredients are their hallmark, and everything is designed not to be hippy-dippy, but to look like standard everyday products. My client is, obviously, a huge fan, and I do like the sense of mission, wide range of products, and good prices. Problems? It just seems very corporate and impersonal, and the products look too normal. The truth is in the trying, however, so I do urge a try. Let us know what you find. >> Melaleuca.com (ReEdited from 2004-05-06 - MGR)
