NatureZway Eco-Friendly Cleaning Products
NatureZway produces cleaning products from renewable and sustainable materials, chiefly bamboo. Why bamboo? Bamboo is in the grass family so it is fast growing (it matures in three years); takes up less space and uses less water than trees; does not need pesticides to grow; reduces soil erosion; and captures more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than trees do. NatureZway’s perforated towels are safe on all surfaces and “more durable and absorbent than traditional paper towels”; they can be rinsed and re-used. The super strong and super absorbent cellulose sponges are also durable and ideal for cleaning any surface in your home. The cleaning cloth is soft and non-scratching. NatureZway also makes compostable bags and toilet paper. Find these in the Co-op’s non-foods section.
