Q. Where can I find Green Works® products?
A. Green Works® is available in the cleaning aisle at all major stores where cleaning products are sold.
Q. What does natural mean? Are Green Works® products 100% natural?
A. When we created Green Works® natural cleaners, no industry standard definition for natural cleaners existed. To create Green Works® natural cleaners we set ourselves a very stringent standard. The ingredients must come from renewable resources, be biodegradable and be free of petrochemicals. Green Works® cleaners are at least 95% natural. In certain cases we had to use synthetic ingredients, like the preservative and green colorant. But we’re working hard to develop natural alternatives so the entire line can be 100% natural.
Q. Do Green Works® products disinfect?
A. Not yet. But our scientists are focused on evaluating natural disinfecting ingredients. We hope to incorporate disinfecting into Green Works® cleaners in the future.
Q. Why is Green Works® more expensive than traditional cleaners?
A. The cost of natural ingredients is significantly higher than what is used in traditional cleaners. Green Works® products cost less than other natural cleaners and when you consider they are more natural and clean with the power you expect from Clorox, the premium price is a good value.
Q. Is Clorox merely jumping on the green bandwagon?
A. We've been working on natural products for the past 5 years. We set ourselves a difficult task–to set the standard for natural cleaning and create products that clean with the power you expect from Clorox. In fact, we delayed Green Works® products from hitting the shelves by 6 months to further perfect the formula. We are fully committed to continuing to develop natural products that continue to set the standard for natural.
Q. What does the Design for the Environment (DfE) logo on Green Works® cleaners mean?
A. The United States Environmental Protection Agency created The Design for the Environment (DfE) Program to reduce risk to people and the environment by preventing pollution. When you see the logo it means that the DfE review team has screened each ingredient in the product for potential human health and environmental effects. Based on currently available information, predictive models and expert judgment they determine that the product contains only those ingredients that pose the least concern among chemicals in their class.
