Founder's Story - Back to Top

It was 1984 and I was 13 years old. I lived in a Chicago, suburb adjacent to small farms and fields, not yet cultivated with dwellings. I spent most of my childhood in one of those fields, built forts, climbed trees, got muddy and caught frogs, lizards, and insects. I began naming the marshes, prairies, fallen logs, clumps of trees and bushes that I encountered on a regular basis. It was like childhood heaven. Then, after spending over 9 years in those fields, one morning I discovered giant machines, mud hills, man-made ponds and destruction. Everything I had named was eventually gone. 10 years later I moved to northern Wisconsin to be closer to nature, and then after 17 years relocated to beautiful Bend, OR. During those years, through my quest for knowledge, I've educated myself about green principals and dynamics through readings about chemistry, green building, politics and the environment. One of the most important things that I've learned is that within the complex interactions between capitalism and the environment, consumers are the most powerful market force on the planet. Businesses sell what people are buying. If people buy eco-friendly products, this is what companies will produce. If people want sustainable homes built in harmony with their environment, this is what developers will build. I hope that by offering great prices on sustainable alternatives to main stream cleaning products at Bulk Green Cleaners™, we can be a small part of the shift towards a more sustainable future. Through your purchase of natural and sustainable cleaning products, you will be part of the driving force of that change. Thank you for shopping sustainably.

Environmental Commitment - Back to Top

At Bulk Green Cleaners™, operating and living sustainability comes naturally. We strive to operate our business as green as possible. Through our business endeavors, we've heated with 90 percent straight veggie oil (SVO), designed a warehouse area with an uninsulated concrete slab that allows the earths stored energy (heat) to help maintain a temperature of 50 degrees Fahrenheit, reducing fuel consumption by approximately 75 percent as compared to heating at 70 degrees. We've integrated South facing windows to light and heat (through passive solar) our warehouses allowing us to go "lights off" all day long and to keep the heat from running on all but the coldest days. We've utilize high efficiency tubular fluorescents in a four bulb chamber with only one bulb inserted in each fixture, allowing us to light each of our office rooms with only 1/4 the energy of most businesses (32 watts per office). We strive to utilize low maintenance water free landscaping techniques, and have plans to incorporate native/edible landscaping trees/shrubs in the future. The diesel truck we have since sold was run on 80 percent straight waste veggie oil (SVO). Also, we specifically shop for reusable and recyclable goods and spend a lot of extra time trying to recycle and compost everything possible. All packing lists and other literature that is required on paper, is printed on 80% Post Consumer Content, salvaged, hemp or banana paper, etc. Additionally, both our retail warehouse and our Bend, OR residence are now powered by 100% renewable energy, (the majority of which is wind power), through WPS's Nature Wise Program & Pacific Power's Blue Sky Program respectively. We even offset our Shipping Impact by 100%, through CarbonFund.Org. Look for our future retail store in Bend, OR to offer more of the same. View our annual Carbon Offset Certificates for offsetting all annual shipping related carbon emissions. Click Here for 2014/Click Here for 2015.

Product Standards - Back to Top

Our product environmental, quality and safety standards include the following: We favor concentrated detergents and appreciate when our customers purchase concentrated versions whenever available. All ingredients must be eco-friendly and listed on product packaging. We prefer to work with vendors who have implemented sustainable solutions to packaging and shipping. We attempt to offer only products that are "safer than" their mainstream counterparts. Although we prefer products built from sustainable materials, some of our products may be stocked due to their exceptional durability, ingenious design and/or energy/material saving qualities, when eco-friendly versions are not yet available (Carpet Cleaning Wands for Example).
