ECover review

Since 1980 Ecover has been devoted to developing and producing effective and ecological washing and cleaning products made from plant-based and mineral ingredients. Ecover's aim is to provide effective, sustainable washing and cleaning solutions that can be used daily by people all around the world.
Ecover's ecological principles extend far beyond the products they create. Ecover's vision of sustainability takes ecological, economic and social aspects into account from the origins of the raw materials, to the complete biodegradation of the final products. Strict criteria are employed along the way as guidelines for all business operations, from selecting raw materials, through production methods to full decomposition of the end products. Ecover products are manufactured in the unique, world-famous ecological factories in Malle, Belgium and Boulogne-sur-mer, France. The factories are crowned with a green roof where plant vegetation grows creating a temperature regulating and noise-dampening insulator throughout the year. 
Ecover employees keep the factory's energy consumption to a minimum and turn the lighting and heating on only when really necessary. Ecover employees are encouraged to travel to work by bicycle or car pool and receive a salary incentive for their efforts.
Ecover is a company that operates with sustainability at its very core and has gained knowledge from years of experience that it is a feasible way to operate. Ecover is constantly innovating and pushing boundaries to create new and more effective products that have a minimum negative impact on the environment.

I think the number one thing I love most about this one, is that it cleans well, but doesn't carry the knock you over smell, and doesn't leave the house smelling like bleach. I prefer my husband to know the house is clean by looking, not by the smell of cleaning supplies when he walks through the door.
