In the last few years there has been a surge, particularly amongst Kits business, of green cleaning products and cosmetics. With sustainable stores in our neighbourhood including Capers, Greens Market and Choices stocking primarily “green” products for cleaning, dishes and laundry you really have no shortage of options and no reason to switch out that chemically filled Mr. Clean for a natural, more environmentally sound choice.
One of my personal favourites is a Vancouver founded and operated business – Aspen Clean . Aspen Clean has been in the green cleaning business for 6+ years and recently announced that you can now buy their 100% natural Ecocert approved cleaning solutions in Kitsilano. Next time you are strolling along Granville Island pop into the Market Kitchen to check out the Aspen Clean line. I have personally used the products and have been blown away from the results. Unlike other green products I have tried this one actually works just as well, and sometimes better than its chemical counterparts. The fact that you can support a local Vancouver business and not pollute the environment while scrubbing your tub is icing on the cleaning cake!
