Buy a salad for lunch, grab an easy to use disposable utensil set and throw it away when you're done, right? Think about the waste this adds up to! Instead of bringing your clunky silverware to work, use these adorable bamboo utensils, conveniently stored in their own locally sewn (in Northern California) organic cotton container! Bamboo is lightweight, yet sturdy. It also grows very quickly to a height that's harvestable in only a few years time, so it's a renewable source (more so than other woods). Use them again and again and you'll be preventing plastic from entering landfills, not to mention have this handy set with you at all times in your bag or desk!

Available in two amazing scents, Peppermint Zinger Set, Citrus and Ginger Set, these organic cleaners will have you hooked! With a natural cleansing aroma, the All Natural All Purpose Cleaner can be used on any water safe surface from wood to countertops and even fabric. The natural ingredients will remove stubborn stains, household germs and odors while still being safe enough to use on products like baby toys. These light, energizing scents smell natural, unlike the chemical cleansers you'll find in grocery stores, so they won't give you a headache. Another green element of this product: the refills! Chartreuse doesn't waste the resources and energy transporting water to you, so these are shipped in concentrate form. You provide the water! Refills are contained in handy pouches that you simply pour into the bottle and fill with water. By shipping the concentrate pouches in this form, the weight of the packages are much lighter, burn less gas during trasnport, and therefore are more environmentally friendly! Also included are the Organic Bathroom Cleaner and Glass Cleaner!
Reuse your bottles and order our economical refill pouches from TheGreenerMe! They're sold in a pre-measured concentrate. Each 4 oz concentrate pouch makes a 32 oz bottle.

Unlike the food industry...
...there are no regulations in the personal care industry around the term “organic”. You can name your company Suzie’s Organics without a single organic ingredient. So many in the industry has been clamoring for certification rules to separate the “real organics” from the “imposters”.

End paper towel use forever with these convenient, biodegradable sponges made from renewable tree farms! Americans send about 3,000 tons of paper towels to the landfill every year, and they aren't recyclable. These towels hold ten times the liquid of regular paper towels, and the cost benefit of these sponge towels will add up quickly: you'll get the same use from one reusable paperless towel as 17 rolls of paper towels!
This natural fabric can be thrown into the dishwasher or machine washed to disinfect and is the perfect way to cut costs in your home.
A strategy with these paper towels to try out: buy a pack for the kitchen and one for the bathroom. Use one for washing dishes and kitchen surfaces, while using the other pack for the your bathroom surfaces (goes great with Chartreuse's organic bathroom cleaners!). Think about it: one roll of paper towels is often more than $2 for a single roll! It will pay for itself in no time.
