If you’re the type of person that would be interested in buying natural, safe cleaning products from a local company – check out Norristown, Pa based Sun & Earth. You’ll recognize their logo if you’ve browsed the store aisles for something a bit less caustic than some of the brand name cleaners that litter the shelves. Sun & Earth prides itself in creating cleaners and other household products that are phosphate free, chlorine free, dye & perfume free. Their secret is the use of plant, fruit and vegetable oils that are extremely effective and umpteen times more healthy for you and the environment.
The company was purchased a few years ago by a socially responsible venture fund established by Ben Cohen – the co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s. It is fascinating to note that 20% of the company was more-or-less given to the employees as part of the arrangement. I suppose invested employees are more likely to really work hard to make their product successful and something they would use around their own homes.
Take a moment to read some of the product testamonials – you’ll note that some customers are using the cleaners as laundry detergents, others swear by the performance of the products, and you will also see that the sensitive skin types are extremely happy with the product. In any case, you should check-out their products and their website – what a great Pennsylvania company.
