Household cleaners are used quite often in my house, and I am guessing in yours as well! There are so many choices when you walk down that aisle of any grocery or retail store. I have been eliminating the use of chemicals in my house and this directly affects the products I use to clean. I have now discovered Green Shield Organic, a company that has certified USDA Organic cleaning products.
Our Goal is to continually strive to deliver high performance, Human-Safe products that get the job done,while eliminating or minimizing negative environmental effects. We ensure that while we create commerce, it is not done so at the expense of our precious ecology.Our promise toward maintaining a sustainable environment means that we will, whenever possible, eliminate any risk of ecological erosion. This includes using organically grown ingredients, ensuring biodegradability, using recycled packaging and creating smaller packaging footprints, as often as possible.
Green Shield Organic carries laundry detergent, glass cleaner, all-purpose cleaner, bathroom cleaner, toilet bowl cleaner, kitchen cleaner, biodegradable surface wipes, and automatic dishwasher liquid detergent. Every product is certified organic! They are free from phosphates, phthalates, parabens, phenols, ammonia, sodium laurel sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate, ethylene glycol, propylene glycol, butyl cellosolve, synthetic preservatives, and petroleum based materials. These products are also gluten free. Green Shield decided to become an “Organic” company because the term “natural” had been overused. They pride themselves on being the first company to receive Organic certification for their line of household cleaners and detergents. They are also the only line of USDA certified Organic household cleaners and detergent in the US, Australia and Asia! They source many of their raw materials within the US, especially North Carolina. Their household cleaners are made with antimicrobial cleansers which kill odor causing bacteria. Their laundry products are designed to be used in both high efficiency and standard machines. I also appreciate that all the ingredients come from sustainable resources! You can see a list of each product’s ingredients on their website.
I was sent the Elite Care Free & Clear Laundry Detergent to try out! This detergent is free and clear of fragrances and dyes. It is formulated to penetrate stains, and remove grease, dirt & grime, all while protecting colors. It is septic system safe as well as non-toxic, hypo-allergenic, non volatile and has never been tested on animals. So far, I have used the detergent on my clothes, bathroom rugs, and towels, all of which came out smelling clean and fresh. I also feel at peace knowing that there are no harmful chemicals lingering on my clothes after they have been washed. I appreciate that this company also uses sustainable products and that they get most of their products within the US, and most in the North Carolina.
The detergent is very concentrated, so you do not need a lot. I found that the detergent did not create bubbles, which is fine because I know that the presence of bubbles does not mean that my clothes will be clean. It was nice to see that the detergent worked, even without bubbles! Since the detergent was unscented, there was no overpowering smell, but I would like to try out their lavender version because sometimes I do like a scent left behind. Their lavender scented products are made with essential oils, not synthetic fragrance oils.
I would love to try more of their products, especially their toilet bowl cleaner! You can buy all their products online at specified stores, or at any Whole Foods, or regionally at Fresh Market, Food Lion, Lowe’s Home Improvement, and Wegman’s. To find the nearest location to you, use their Store Locator.
