On the tenth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…

Eco-Max

One company at a time, the world is getting a little bit greener. We’ve done some reviews of great bath and body products that are eco-friendly, now here is one for your home. Eco-Max is a fantastic family-run company that is based out of Oakville, Ontario. In 1999 Prism Care Corporation was formed with the goal of creating not just green, but certifiably environmentally friendly products. They have succeeded! Over ten years later, some of the biggest organizations in the country such as Royal Bank, Telus, Canada Post and even Environment Canada use Eco-Max products to clean their buildings. In 2007 they launched a line of household products that are now available at select stores and online. I love a company that has a mission and stands by it in every way they can. They are certified by EcoLogo, 100% Canadian owned and operated, 100% BullFrog powered with green electricity in their office and manufacturing facility, and, oh yeah, their products are rather awesome.

I tested out their Natural Lavender Laundry Wash. It’s good for either an HE washer or a standard washer and is made from 100% plant based materials. It smells like lavender. Real lavender – like I just stuck my nose in the lavender bush that grows in my garden in the summer. Not a commercially-fabricated lavender smell, just lavender. My clothes smelled fantastic coming out of the washer – clean, fresh and heavenly. One load and I was sold. The other thing I love about this laundry wash is the list of ingredients. I can read every one and don’t require a dictionary to understand what I’m washing my clothes with. It’s safe for use on baby clothes, delicates and it’s toxicity is as close to water as you can just about get. The Natural Orange and Natural Lavender washes are made with essential oils, but the Hypoallergenic wash is not, which makes it safe for use on cloth diapers and wipes.

Ready to get your house clean and feel really good about it? In addition to the laundry washes, Eco-Max also makes spray cleaners for around the house, dish washes and concentrates.
