My crusade against 'Green Washing', Part 1
March 23, 2010 - 4:55 pm

to: Cliff’s Variety, Castro St, SF, CA

The TWIST sponges and scrubbies, etc are all biodegradable – unlike the product line that you currently carry, Goodbye Detergent.

Basically, Goodbye Detergent is trying to masquerade as a green and “environmentally friendly” while all of their still contain plastics, in the form of polyester, nylon, polyurethane and plain old plastic. And NONE of them are biodegradable. I know they’re trying to say their products are so effective you don’t need to use ‘harmful’ detergents – but the plastic products they are using are quite harmful [not to mention there are many non-harming dish soap alternatives]

This is just my 2 cents :-) Nobody has paid me to say this (unfortunately!). THANKS!

Thanks, Jennifer Maher

for a multitude of reasons why I wouldn’t want to buy disposables with plastic, see
