Clorox Green Works Commercial Cleaning Products

Clorox, the most trusted name in cleaning products, got to work on a line of products that can clean without the harsh chemical fumes or residue. Launched in January of 2008, Clorox’s line of natural cleaning products essentially launched the eco-friendly cleaning product category growing exponentially, almost overnight. With eco-friendliness and a more natural lifestyle in mind, Clorox began experimenting with natural and safe ingredients in search of a product that wouldn’t just be gentle on the environment but also cleaned any surface. At the time, there was no industry standard for natural, so Clorox looked at some existing definitions and set the bar even higher. All Green Works® products are:

  • Made with plant- and mineral-based cleaning ingredients
  • biodegradable ingredients that are naturally derived
  • Not tested on animals
  • Packaged using environmentally sustainable packaging whenever possible
  • Acknowledged by the EPA’s Design for the Environment program
