It’s so easy to be green

While doing the laundry keeps clothes looking crisp and clean, the actual process can leave the environment a little less spotless. A typical top-loading washer uses approximately 100-150 litres of water per load, and a dryer can use up to five kilowatts of electricity per hour.  This, coupled with the chemicals found in some traditional detergents, can make laundry a dirty job. 

And while many Canadians are looking to green up their laundry routines, the never-ending list of daily to-dos, high price tags on eco-friendly products and confusing product labels can easily derail even the best intentions to go green.  Contrary to popular myth, adopting eco-friendly habits in the home does not require a total lifestyle overhaul.

With the introduction of Green Works natural laundry detergent, available on store shelves now, Canadians can green up and clean up their laundry routines in no time flat.  Made from naturally-derived cleaning ingredients, Green Works natural laundry detergent is an easy, affordable way for families to go green without completely altering their lifestyle or emptying their wallets to do it.

From ketchup and mustard to grape juice and red wine, Green Works natural laundry detergent tackles tough stains with the power you would expect from a traditional cleaner but cleans without leaving a harsh chemical residue.  Even better, the detergent is dermatologist-tested making it a great choice for families with young infants or children with sensitive skin.

This year, make green a priority in your house, starting with the laundry room.  For more information and tips from Sarah Richardson on going green in your household visit
