Raewyn & Max Whitelaw
Green Clean Living Founders
Hello, my name is Raewyn Whitelaw. There was a time when my husband Max and I didn’t have much of a reason to smile. Today we can. Read on to find out why.
In August 2006 my life was about to change dramatically. I was diagnosed with incurable Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (cancer of the Lymphatic System). So many thoughts screamed through my brain. How long have I got? How am I going to tell my Children Vanya, Rhys and Lara and explain to my grandchildren, Hunter, Tyla, Kaedyn and Brooke? They won’t understand that Nanny is sick and may not be with them in the near future.
Life is so precious, you only have one shot at it.
I took the bull by the horns. I learnt very quickly how much toxins are a part of our health issues. So I set out to see what I could do to make my life healthier and how to help my family, friends and enhance the lives of people I touch.
I researched on toxins and was amazed on how many toxins are in the everyday cleaning products purchased from the supermarkets. We breathe them, clean with them and ingest all the toxic fumes, slowly poisoning ourselves. The manufacturers don’t care what they put in the products, as long as it’s cheap and it does the job. They don’t worry about the harmful effects they have on our delicate bodies.
All About Us
Green Clean Living has firmly supports this mission statement. Everything we accomplish is done with an eye toward promoting the physical, environmental, financial, and personal wellness of those around us. When you talk to anyone associated with Green Clean Living, you can feel it immediately. This is who were are and what we stand for.
Green Clean Living is part of a company who’s scientists have spent years developing a line of exclusive products, including a line of cleaners, with an entirely different philosophy — that you shouldn’t have to choose between effective cleaning power and the safety of your home or the health of your environment.
We hope and believe that many generations will follow ours. And we believe we have a responsibility to those future generations. It is easy to rapidly do damage to the earth, our streams, our lakes, our forests, and our oceans. But it may take decades and huge costs to repair that damage. We believe that not preserving the earth for future generations is irresponsible.
We believe that natural, biodegradable ingredients can provide the same or better cleaning effectiveness as a harsh, harmful chemicals–without doing any damage whatsoever to the environment inside our homes, and without doing any damage to our streams and oceans once we dispose of them.
Certainly, natural, safer ingredients often cost more than harsh, cheap chemicals. However, Green Clean Living has found a way to deliver products made with superior, safer, and more effective ingredients at an even lower cost per use than the cheap, harsh ingredients our competitors use.
We strive to deliver only the highest quality of products.
We promise to always:
- Lead the way in concentrating products
- Use the safest and best ingredients available
- Formulate products to minimize adverse impact on the environment
- Whenever possible use natural substitutes that meet our quality standards for effectiveness
- Deliver products that represent a better value for our customers
Green Clean Living offers a line of exclusive products for Bath & Body, Dental Care, Health & Wellbeing, Home & Living, Skin Care, Medicinal Products, Sports Nutrition, Weight Management and Pet Care with an entirely different philosophy.
What makes our products different?
Safer for Your Home
The world can be harsh. We don’t think your cleaning products have to be. And that’s why we offer the products that we do. You can trust our products will never contain chlorine bleach, ammonia, phthalates, formaldehyde or other harsh chemicals. And we pledge to develop products that don’t need a child proof cap.
At Green Clean Living, we believe that some of the best solutions still come from nature. We use the latest scientific advances, not to find a replacement for natural ingredients, but as a means of unlocking their unique powers—and we’ve made some pretty amazing discoveries. For example enzymes to break down food on dishes in our patented dish soap, or natural citric acid to dissolve away soap scum with our cleaner , or the use of the herb thyme to kill 99.9% of bacteria with our botanical based disinfectant and anti-bacterial cleaners.
Nature has an abundance of cleaning power. And nature is where our product’s formulas begin. Every product’s formula is developed around the most effective naturally derived ingredients—and the results are amazing.
Relying on proven, natural or naturally derived ingredients and pioneering new ways to tap their unique power, we offer an entire line of naturally derived, effective, and biodegradable formulas. Many of our products are super-concentrated, so there are no fillers, no unnecessary ingredients, and no large, bulky containers. That means less plastic for packaging. And, all our cleaners are in recyclable bottles so they can be easily recycled in areas with recycling programs. That not only makes our products easier to use and store, it reduces the impact on landfills, water treatment facilities, and recycling plants as well. We do all we can to help make your world a little cleaner. You don’t have to be a member of a conservation society or memorize meaningful passages from Walden to care about the environment. It all starts with the simple understanding that whatever goes down the drain eventually ends up in the water supply. And that can eventually have a pretty big impact on your home and family.
When our products were created, the goal was not only to develop effective, safer products our goal was to make effective, safer products, that every family could afford to have in their home. But it’s not as easy as it sounds. Most of the leading-brand cleaners contain inexpensive ingredients that are effective, and usually it’s the environment that pays the price. Oftentimes, there are safer, more natural alternatives, but they’re much more expensive. So how do you make formulas with better, more expensive ingredients as affordable as the competition? One answer solved two problems at the same time—concentrating. By concentrating all our product’s formulas, not only was it possible to make the packaging smaller (reducing the impact on the environment), it is possible to drastically lower costs and pass those savings on to the customer. And unlike the leading brands that spend millions on advertising and pass the costs on to the consumers, we rely only on the word-of-mouth marketing of those who have tried and loved our products. It may be a little unconventional, but we at Green Clean Living believe your home and family are worth it.
