Cleaning Products

Project Green provides a true option to other established detergent manufacturers who cannot commit themselves to make the change to safe, biodegradable and sustainable ingredient based formulas.

The concept is simple: for any given cleaning application, Project Green formulates products with the safest, most biodegradable and most sustainable type of ingredients.

Project Green products consist of active ingredients, such as:

  • Polyglycoside surfactant, derived from sugar (a renewable resource), and readily biodegradable
    Ethanol, also derived from sugar
  • NTA, the biodegradable chelating agent from the EDTA family
  • Silicates, the least hazardous form of alkalinity. The main ingredient of traditional sugar soaps, these ingredients can be found in many heavy duty cleaning chemicals in the Project Green range.
  • Citric Acid and Sulphamic acid

More importantly, the following hazardous, less biodegradable ingredients are not in the Project Green cleaning product range:

  • Nonylphenol ethoxylates, which is non biodegradable and is a known endocrine disruptor (linked to adverse biological effects in animals).
  • EDTA, a non biodegradable chelating agent.
  • Phosphates, a class of sequestering agents, responsible for the eutrophication of many inland surface waters.
  • Butoxy ethanol, a solvent able to penetrate the skin and capable of affecting the central nervous system.

    As a result, ALL Project Green products are NOT classified as Dangerous Goods or Hazardous Substances. Instead, Project Green products are safe, readily biodegradable and can truly be called sustainable products.
