What is that Green Thing Underneath My Sink?!
If you carefully open the door to the cabinet underneath my kitchen sink, you will definitely find something green. Don't worry, though, it's not a growing fungi, but a bottle of environmentally friendly or "green" All Purpose Cleanser.
One of the areas our company, Exit Stage Right, harps on about, is that when you present your home for sale, it must be Q-Tip clean! No one is interested in buying and living in your dirty home, so it's very important to ensure that all surfaces, floors, windows, light fixtures, and appliances are sparkling clean and brand new looking. Our company prides itself in using as many eco friendly products as we can, and environmentally friendly cleaning products are a natural fit.
We were happy to find a cleaning company, here on the North Shore, based in West Vancouver, called AspenClean. This company produces environmentally friendly products that are better for the environment, and are also produced locally, cutting down on the carbon footprint. These products are readily available, and I picked my personal supply up at the local West Vancouver Whole Foods grocery store. Whole Foods even has a tag on the shelves of their store, emphasizing that this product travelled only 2 kilometers to reach their store. How fantastic is that?

Next time you need some cleaning products, think "Green", and think local. Just because it's under your kitchen sink, it doesn't mean it has to be scary!
