Ecover Review and Giveaway...

Thanks to Ecover we got to try out another green cleaning option, Ecover All-Purpose Cleaner.


A word from Ecover:

The environment starts in your home! Ecover is a safe alternative to the seemingly endless array of chemical-based household cleaners on the market today. With an entire range of products for cleaning – from the dirty clothes hamper to the washroom to the kitchen sink! – Ecover makes it easy to clean effectively while still making small changes to help the environment. It is sometimes overwhelming when you stop and think about all the environmental issues we are faced with on a daily basis. But taking the steps to make a few adjustments in your routine makes a major impact. Ecover makes it easy to do your part without compromising quality with a full range of products.


Cleaning up shouldn’t be a dirty job! Ecover manufactures its cleaners in the worlds first ecological plant. From the sedum roof to the recycled bricks down to the end product, every step is taken to ensure the most ecologically sound methods for household cleaning are used. The onsite laboratory takes great strides in testing ingredients and formulas that result in the quick and complete degradation of the end product. This means that after each use all Ecover products totally and completely degrade ensuring their reversion to nature’s intended “building blocks”. Make a positive choice for your family and you – invite just one change into your home and see just how safe and effective ecological cleaning can be!" What we thought:
I really enjoyed using Ecover. The All-Purpose Cleaner had simple, easy to follow directions and immediate results. I loved how versatile the cleaner was...it was safe and effective enough to use in every room of our house. The ingredient list was short and simple and I especially love that in a cleaner..you really know what you're putting into your home:) We are very sensitive to scents and the light lemon fragrance didn't seem to bother any of us. Overall, Ecover All-Purpose Cleaner is a green cleaner we will continue to use and feel good about it:) ABCD Diaries gives Ecover an A!



Buy It: You can find a huge range of Ecover products for your entire home at HEB, Whole Foods, and many other retailers...check the store locator for your nearest location.

Win It: Ecover has generously offered one ABCD Diaries reader $their own Ecover product!! To enter, go check out their site and let us know one thing your doing to be green:)

  1. I checked out Ecover's site. I advocate for policy change on my blog for protection of our oceans, particularly concerning the Gulf and post updates on the current disaster. I alos am reading ingredients of cleaning products and making some of my own products from organic materials.

  71. I checked out the Ecover website..it's amazing how 55% of US consumers don’t think “green” cleaners work well! We have been getting a little "greener" each day in our family. We started by recycling..and it just took off from there. I wash in cold water, line dry my clothes{we don't even have a dryer}reuse as much as possible and use the left over pet water for plants.
