Our good friends at WAGES (Women's Action to Gain Economic Security) have put together a short (we promise!) quiz on green cleaning. Test your green cleaning street cred here.
The folks at WAGES know green cleaning. The group sets up cooperatively-owned residential cleaning businesses that use all natural, non-toxic cleaning products.
Not only does WAGES provide a service that protects planet home, the organization also creates secure jobs for women. The women who do the cleaning are owners of the businesses. Their pay is higher, and they have health insurance and paid vacation days, benefits that are almost unheard of in the residential cleaning business. As well, they spend their days using products that are free of chemicals toxins.
After you've taken the quiz, check out the new WAGES website, which offers lots of great information on green cleaning. If you live in or around San Francisco, give them a call for a free estimate. We encourage everyone to support their work with a tax deductible contribution. It’s an amazing organization that has a transformational impact on women’s lives, and Seventh Generation is proud to support their work.
We hope you will join us.
