Clean and Green: New eco-friendly cleaning products available from WWF
29 Nov 2005, London, UK – British celebrity chef Antony Worrall Thompson has launched a new range of environmentally-friendly cleaning products, derived from natural plant extracts.
The Clean and Green range of biodegradable products had to pass stringent eco-criteria set by WWF that seeks to identify items that have minimal impacts on the environment. The natural ingredients in the household products were also produced using sustainable agricultural practices.
“The safety of our environment is of paramount importance to me, particularly concerning is the millions of litres of chemicals and toxins discharged into the ecosystem every year,” said Thompson.
“The Clean and Green range of products are derived from natural plant extracts using sustainable environmental practices and are readily biodegradable so they will not leave any harmful persistent residue in the environment.”
“Thousands of chemicals are manufactured, used and released into the environment everyday – many are used in the products we use in our homes on a daily basis" added Elizabeth Salter Green, Head of WWF-UK’s toxics programme.
"That is why WWF is campaigning for legislation that will properly regulate chemicals, including those found in everyday products, and where appropriate, phase out those that are hazardous in favour of safer alternatives. We’re very pleased that high profile figures like Antony Worral Thompson are championing environmentally products like the Clean and Green range.”
The range comprises of seven items including an anti-bacterial all purpose cleaner, kitchen degreaser, stain remover, odour neutraliser & air freshener, anti-bacterial handwash and an anti-bacterial washing liquid.
The complete range will be available starting December from WWF’s online shop.
