A man builds a fine house;
and now he has a master, and a task for life:
he is to furnish, watch, show it, and keep it in repair,
the rest of his days.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
We went to Target to get a desk for Cassie (Jeff built her a nice “office” to try and keep her craft detritus contained to her room) and I grabbed some (organic!) chicken and yogurt for the kids. Opposite the fridge aisles is an aisle dedicated entirely to eco-cleansers… and right smack in the middle of the Methods and Seventh Gens and Mrs. Meyer’s?
Baking soda, white vinegar and Bon Ami!
While cleaning with baking soda and white vinegar has become a common notion on the internet, it was pretty surprising to see a huge chain like this acknowledge that. Not even my co-op does this… I just thought it was super cool and I hope it reflects a changing consumer attitude about cleaning products. After all, no store does anything without thinking it will mean a $$ return for them. Presumably this is what customers wanted! (And of course, means they will eyeball all those other ‘green’ cleaning choices available. I don’t really have a problem with that.)
Have you seen any stores doing this?
Or is my specific Target eco-awesome?
