You Have a Right to Know!
Last year, on behalf of health, consumer, and environmental groups, Earthjustice sued household cleaning giants for failing to submit required semi-annual ingredient reports.
In September, New York State announced it will finally begin requiring household cleaning companies to reveal the chemical ingredients in their products and any health risks they pose. The first-of-its-kind policy could have national implications, as momentum builds here and abroad for toxic chemical reform.
Using everyday ingredients like vinegar and baking soda, safe, non-toxic cleaning recipes will have your home looking and smelling bright and clean. And more importantly, you'll save money and know exactly what's being wiped and mopped around your home. Browse some of our favorite recipes below, and then visit our Facebook page for more!
Green cleaning parties are fun events where you and your friends learn how to make non-toxic cleaners from common items like vinegar and baking soda. Until household cleaner companies tell us what's in their products, the safest cleaners are those you mix yourself from ingredients you can trust!
Our partners at Women's Voices for the Earth (WVE) will show you how to mix your own safe and effective surface cleaners, laundry detergent and more. Read about these Earthjustice members on why they're having parties, and visit WVE to start planning your green cleaning party today!
