Go Green with Natural Cleaning Supplies
Long before going green became popular, Mary Findley dedicated her life to changing people's use of toxic chemicals. Years of cleaning homes professional and breathing toxic chemicals convinced Mary of the necessity to change our way of life. Some of the cleaners she used were not tolerated by her customers and her own throat and lungs soon showed issues after breathing the fumes for years on end. For her own health and that of her customers, Mary found healthy ways to clean, which set her on a course to change the way the world views cleaning.
Since writing her book "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Green Cleaning", Mary's eyes opened even wider to the various ways people could make small changes in their lifestyle that would slow the damage being done to Mother Earth. One person can make a difference especially when multiplied by even one million people - the numbers are staggering.

Let's take a quick view of what Mary has figured out:
EXAMPLE: Just by switching from a ready to use cleaner to a concentrated cleaner like Mary's concentrated cleaner CleanEz, (it makes 32 quarts of ready to use product) is a savings of 31 plastic bottles. Since cleaners are shipped 12 bottles per case buying CleanEz saves 2 ½ cardboard boxes. That may not sound like much but let's multiple this out.
If 1 million people make the simple switch from a ready to use product (they come with sprayers already in the bottle) to a concentrated cleaner that is a savings of 31 million quart bottles, which are plastic and made from oil.
Here are the facts:
Each quart of CleanEz makes 32 quarts of diluted cleaners. 1 million bottles of CleanEz requires 1 million quart bottles to manufacture. 1 million cases of CleanEz requires only 83, 333.33 cardboard boxes to haul them to the distribution centers.
To make the same amount of cleaner, a consumer must purchase 32 quarts of a ready to use product requiring an additional 31 million bottles of cleaner. 2,666,666 cardboard boxes are needed to haul ready to use products.
Next consider the overall energy and oil it takes to manufacture 31 million more bottles of cleaner, the additional cardboard cases and the fuel needed haul this number of bottles to the distribution center then to the store. That is only one product and one million people making this one small change.
Now multiply that by the 200 million or more people in American who buy ready to use cleaners and it comes to a difference of 516,666,600 cardboard boxes – think of the tree that are saved - and 530,666,534 bottles. The savings in fuel for shipping alone would about end our dependence on foreign oil.
And remember this is just one product. Eliminate your dependence on toxic toilet bowl cleaners and you have doubled your cost savings and dramatically increased the savings to Mother Earth.
*NOTE: Eco Friendly toilet bowl cleaner: Spray your toilet with diluted CleanEz and sprinkle in just a bit of baking soda. Cost? Perhaps 5 cents. Savings to our Earth? Immeasurable.
Here is even more exciting news that you probably haven't considered: One bottle of CleanEz certified by the EPA as eco-friendly - costs you $25 making 32 quarts of cleaner. Shipping is $10 for a total of $35 or a total cost of $1.09 per quart. One quart of ready to use costs an average of $7 per quart plus $10 shipping. The same 32 quarts of a ready to use product costs you $84 for 32 quarts and $320 for shipping. Total? A staggering $404 cost. Add in an additional $7 per quart for toilet bowl cleaner and you have now saved $773 just by switching to CleanEz or a concentrated cleaner.
There are dozens of examples for you to save even more:
- If you use disposable razor blades dry the blade after shaving and leave the cap off. They will last for 5 or 6 months rather than a week. Granted razor blades are small but multiplied by millions of people saving 1 blade a week, the overall savings is tremendous.
- Stop buying new bottles of herbs at the grocery store. Buy bulk instead and refill your bottles once they are empty. You save an average of $5 a bottle and the earth saves the energy and fuel to ship millions of herb bottles.
- Buy bulk products and cut back further on the dependence of cardboard packaging and the toxic inks used for printing fancy labels.
- Slow down your driving speed. Every 5 mph you reduce adds a mile per gallon to your fuel economy.
