People try the Nontoxic Cleaners and LIKE them!

After talking to Intern, Noah El Naboulsi this summer, people provided testimonials after trying the nontoxic cleaners at home.  Check them out:

  • My dog has gotten sick in the past from licking floor cleaners off the floor so a mix of only vinegar and water is great.
  • Thank you for doing this work!  It is so important and we need to continue to rally together to make a change!
  • I’m gonna annoy all the people in my dorm this year about what you told me at the farmer’s market.  Scary stuff, but I’m glad you are teaching people.  Thanks!
