What's not in a Clara Green cleaning product

What's not in a Clara Green cleaning product

To have any credibility in this space, I have to include a giant list of all the things that are not in my products. This list is going to sound really scary. In fact, it is so scary that my cat just tried to prevent me sharing the list with you by jumping up and down on my keyboard. I am going to do it anyway because I know you are all thrill-seekers, and because I also know this story has a happy ending. So here goes.

Oh, hang on. Before I start you need to know that this list comes from the GECA Cleaning Products Standard (Cpv2.2i-2012). GECA (Good Environmental Choice Australia) is the not-for-profit organisation that spends all its time writing environmental standards and pissing off household name manufacturers.

Clara Green supplies only certified green cleaning products. They are certified against the GECA cleaning products standard.

This includes:

  • Palm Oil not from RSPO certified sources
  • Palm Kernal Oil not from RSPO certified sources
  • Phosphorus Compounds
  • Pathogenic Microorganisms
  • Microorganisms not susceptible to TGA recognised disinfectant
  • Microorganisms not susceptible to the five major strains of antibiotics
  • Impure microorganisms
  • Residual Bacteria
  • Alkylphenol ethoxylates and other alkyphenol derivatives
  • Quaternary Ammonium compounds
  • Aziridine or polyaziridines

Remember: Clara Green only supplies cleaning products that meet GECA's exacting environmental standards. They are non-toxic, non-hazardous and readily biodegradeable. Check out GECA's standards here.

The lack of toxic chemicals is what makes Clara Green's eco friendly cleaning products for childcare so safe.
