Back to the Future: Part 3 (Plus link to survey from Climate Reality Team)

My goal in these postings of Back to the Future is to explore, report, and experiment with household products and personal care items that do not harm the environment. Also, I have been writing companies about their products when they fall short of being sustainable, such as plastic packaging.

For each posting I will provide the info on the package so you can decide if you wish to try it. These products are usually available online  (ex. or at health food stores, but since many supermarkets now carry organic produce, I think these cooking & cleaning products will eventually be available in supermarkets and drug stores as well.

Below is a link to the website:

P.S.  The ingredients can cause eye irritation and gives instructions on how to take care of that issue. I recently purchased it and will report back if the product does not clean my dishes as well as what I am now using.
