Green Cleaning Workshop

When: 10:30am and 12:00pm

Where: Port Moody Recreation Complex (300 Ioco Rd)

Have you resolved to live greener in 2017? Our green cleaning workshop is the perfect place to start. Those of you who are regular DIY’ers will learn some new tips and are welcome to come share your tips and tricks you’ve learned.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • Why vinegar isn’t as eco-friendly as you think! 
  • How to harness the power of Foster Naturals ecoOrganic Dish Soap and one other household ingredient to remove turmeric, wine, coffee and tea stains and even rust in your kitchen.
  • Why using castile soap mixed with vinegar is not the best DIY cleaning solution.
  • What ‘greenwashing’ is and what to watch out for on products labelled ‘natural’ or ‘plant based’

According to the US Environment Protection Agency, the air inside a typical home is 200-500% more polluted than the air outside – mostly because of toxic household cleaning products. Children and pets are most vulnerable to health issues related to these chemicals. Green cleaning is so much more than just a pleasant cleaning experience.  Its what we all want – safety for our loved ones.

Participants will create their own cleaner during the class to take home.  You will also walk away with a sample of Foster Naturals ecoOrganic Dish Soap and $10 in market money.

Workshops are outdoors under a tented area, so please dress for the weather.

Cost: $20 *Workshops are transferrable, but non-refundable*
