Green Tip: Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day
These cleaning products are good. We like the way they work, smell and look (the packaging is cheery in a retro way). We like that they don’t contain tons of icky ingredients. Here is the scoop on their greenness: They are biodegradable and do not contain ammonia, chlorine or phosphates. Raw materials are obtained from renewable plant resources such as olive, coconut, corn or soy. The company is cruelty-free meaning they do not test any of their products on animals.
They are aromatheraputic. Essential oils are used extensively to create the scents of lavender, geranium and lemon verbena. Once you find your favorite scent, you can shop the whole line in that scent and use it to clean your home, your laundry, your pet and yourself.
We buy ours at Whole Foods and the Container Store. Check the website to find a retailer near you or to purchase online.
