More green cleaning products

Sierra Club just launched a partnership with Clorox called Green Works –  natural, effective, and inexpensive cleaning products. The ingredients are derived from coconuts and lemon oil, contain no phosphorus or bleach,  formulated to be biodegradable, not tested on animals, non-allergenic, and packaged in bottles that can be recycled. For around  $2.99 to $3.39 they are much cheaper than most “green” products on the market. You can find these products in most stores and even Amazon will be selling them as well.

Why not pick some up for your library cleaning? Healthier work environments lead to healthier and more productive employees.

    Did you see the news story in the NYTimes on 2/2/08 about a 33 cent tax on plastic shopping bags that is creating demand for re-usable bags? The Irish are going green! And I think we could follow this example… how many conference bags could be used for more than one event? How many canvas bags with our library logo could be sold as both a fund-raiser and a green shopping bag?

  3. […]   Going Green @ Your Library had a post on February 3 about The Sierra Club and Clorox teaming up to create environmentally friendly cleaning products titled, Green Works. For me, that name is too closely associated to the non-lethal prank device that my friends and I would leave in neighbors mailboxes. Apparently, there weren’t many fourteen year old boys in the focus groups. […]
