So Fresh and so Green-Clean!

I am a mom that is devoted to using only the most eco-saavy products in my home, be it the clothes we wear or the cleaning products that we use. I recently got the opportunity to review the brand new Clorox Green Works Dish Soap, and I've got to say, I was extremely happy with it.

I was tried out the Clorox Green Works Dish Soap in the Original Scent, which is not overpowering or overly "dish-soapy" -- according to my finely tuned nose. While the original scent is nice, I would be especially excited to try the Free and Clear scent -- because it sounds so fresh and clean (and urm, free and clear). It is also available in Tangerine, Free and Clear, and Simply Lemon.

The soap itself functioned as well if not better than my other dish soap, so no worries -- with those harsh chemicals gone, it still cut through grime and grease with no problem. This soap uses all natural ingredients like coconut and lemon oil, so it is completely sustainable and biodegradable.

I'll just be honest -- a couple of years ago, the idea of being environmentally conscious was one that pretty much meant nothing to me. As I've grown and learned, I've realized that products that are eco-friendly should be used by everyone, because they truly do have an impact on the world we live in and consequently our quality of life. Those suds have to go somewhere when they go down the drain -- and that is something that affects us all -- no matter your stance on the environment. Everyone deserves to have access to water that is not polluted by chemicals.

Clorox Green Works has partnered with the Sierra Club (the oldest, largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization in the United States) in support of their efforts to preserve our clean air, water, and wildlife, and you will see that all Green Works Products sport the Sierra Club logo. Not only that, but the EPA has recognized the dish soap for using environmentally preferred chemistry, so you will also see their logo showcased on the bottle.

Clorox Green Works Dish Soap hit stores nationwide this month, so next time you are at the grocery store, pick up a bottle to try it for yourself. (And while you're at it, try the Green Works All-Purpose cleaner which I also use and I love!) The price is very reasonable, and comparable to other dish soaps, so why not make the switch -- Clorox is making it easy on us!

So tell me, what kind of cleaning products do you use at home? Do you see the value in eco-friendly cleaning products? If so, what brands do you use?

I have been wanting to make "the switch" in fact yesterday I was at the grocery store studying the labels. This was so helpful, thanks!
