When Bleach Turns Things Green January 17, 2008Posted by smooregasbord in Eco/Green, Shopping.
A few months back there was a real stink made about Clorox purchasing Burt’s Bees. How can a company that produces bleach, plastic bags and plastic wrap, cat litter, and automotive care products now be behind the production of all natural body products? In some’s opinion, this acquisition seems to create a misrepresentation of a product line that consumers supported because of it’s commitment to organic living and the environment.
Well, Clorox has taken it a step further with their new line of home cleaning products called GreenWorks. Clorox claims the products are 99% natural with developments pushing them well on their way to the 100% mark. Each product is biodegradable and comes from renewable resources. Are they just jumping on the eco-wagon or maybe the acquisition of an eco-friendly corporation was a positive influence? Could this possibly prove the old adage that the pasture is always greener on the other side of the fence…at least environmentally speaking!?
