7 Secrets To Getting It Done

1.   Ask your school principal or administrator for the product name of all the cleaning supplies used. Ask to see the full list of ingredients. You have the right to ask and know.  If they use products that don't list all ingredients then it isn't a green product. You want to know what chemicals if any your child is being exposed to.  Our GTC products have full disclosure of all ingredients and don't contain chemicals that are carcinogenic, neurotoxicants, hormone or endocrine disruptors.


2.    Don't be fooled by green cleaning logos- some "green" logos don't equal healthy. Healthy ingredients are those that are all natural or derived from renewable resources and are of plant based origins. Look for products that are derived from corn/palm kernel, essential oils, purified water, olive oil and vinegar.
