Comments Off on iQ Questions “Smarter Cleaning” and Provides Solutions

Canada’s green cleaning supplies company Planet People believes you do not have to give up a “clean planet to have a clean home”. They have come up with a line of cleaning products, iQ that are not only effective cleaning solutions but also take away the menace of use-and-throw plastic dispensers and containers. iQ questions the everyday cleaning routine- Why are cleaning agents toxic and unsafe for children and pets?- iQ is completely non-toxic. If cleaning supplies are 95% water and 5% water why waste plastic (that are clogging landfills) and valuable resources to transport water? -iQ sells the cleaning concentrate in small refills containers that mean 80% less waste. Why are green cleaning supplies less effective? The iQ performance is guaranteed by third-party testers and they offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Why do greener products have to cost more? Since iQ saves on smarter packaging and transportation, the savings are passed on to the customer, making green cleaning cheaper! iQ cleaners come in four different avatars for multipurpose cleaning, floors, bathroom and glass. You only have to buy one completely recyclable plastic dispenser and then use refills when you run out of cleaning solutions. The iQ range has already won two awards for its innovative design, Best Green Packaging at the Green Awards 2010 and most recently the PAC’s Sustainable Packaging Competition Award in June this year. iQ Cleaners are available nationally in Canada at your local Wal-mart & Loblaws stores; and also at a growing number of regional retailers across the U.S. and Canada. Ami Shah, the brand director at iQ talks to Treehugger about her ultimate green goal- “To help change the western mentality that ‘bigger is better.’ As a society this mentality is so ingrained that in the pursuit for more, we’ve ended up developing wasteful products and packaging that pollute our planet. We all need to learn to question the status quo and seek out innovative and progressive products that can meet our needs without taking a toll the environment.” iQ is surely asking the right questions and providing compelling answers.
