Here’s a short list of green products I’ve tried and my reviews. (Disclaimer: no one is paying me or giving me freebies to do this – it’s just another service I provide).
Go Green Bags by Perf
Have handle ties
Completely biodegrades within two years.
Cons: Expensive – a box of 12 bags is over $6.00
Not easy to find – I have to go to Walgreen’s (yes, Walgreen’s – who knew?) to get these – can’t find them at Kroger or Target
Planet Dishwashing Liquid
Pros: Hypoallergenic- this is the ONLY dish soap that doesn’t make my hand eczema flare up!
Effective – Cleans dishes, pots and pans well, even greasy ones
Cons: Expensive – Over $3.00 a bottle and I haven’t seen one coupon
Not easy to find – I’ve only been able to purchase this at Kroger
Clorox Green Works- I’ve tried the natural toilet bowl cleaner and the all purpose glass and surface cleaner
Pros: Can be found at all stores
Slightly more costly than other cleaners, coupons available
Both products seemed to work fine
Cons: Toilet bowl cleaner does not disinfect
How do we know Clorox products are truly green?
Marcal Sunrise Recycled Toilet Paper
Pros: Available at most grocery stores and other chain retailers
Cons: NOT SOFT!!
Too thin – one sheet ply
My family hates it
Reminds me of school toilet paper
These are the only products I’ve tried lately. It’s not much, but as you can see, “green” products aren’t found everywhere and they tend to be more expensive. Before I try more, I’d love to hear what others think! Please comment back if you’ve used other “green” products that you love or hate.
Just think – we’re saving the environment one post at a time!
