NEW! Windex Mini Review & Giveaway

Windex is a well known - and leading - glass cleaner in households. By nature, "glass cleaner" is always Windex to me. What makes me really happy is that Windex has now taking steps to put Green List ingredients in their fabulous product as long as green their packaging. There are many green products out there that are advertised for cleaning windows and mirrors but they leave you with streaks and filmy windows. Yuck. 

Who wants streaks?

Not this gal. 

Introducing the new Windex mini ...

It’s simple. Just cut the corner of the pouch and pour the contents into an empty and clean 26 fl. oz. Windex® trigger bottle. Slowly fill the bottle with tap water.
In just three small steps – cut, pour, add water – it’s an easy, greener choice.

Concentrates offer an easy refill option that can save resources - and we're out to prove it with the new Windex® Mini concentrated refill pouch.

Some pictures of the product...

The pouch itself is smaller than the palm of my hand - saving packaging and allowing you to enjoy the same working power of the original Windex!

Although concentrates use less packaging, decrease shipping impacts and reduce waste, testing has shown U.S. consumers are averse to refilling household cleaning bottles. SC Johnson believes that the effort to shift consumer mindsets around concentrates is a bigger opportunity than it is a challenge, and the company is making a commitment to the exploration.
Currently, people buy 21 million bottles of Windex cleaners each year. If just 20 percent of those were refilled, each year it could:
·         Save 350,000 pounds of plastic - that's 26 million ballpoint pens
·         Avoid using 175,000 pounds of virgin plastic - that's 3 million soda bottles
·         Avoid transporting 735,000 gallons of water - that's more than  6 million pounds by weight

The product is available for purchase exclusively online at The site includes an open forum for consumers to allow SC Johnson to solicit product feedback in real-time, respond to consumers and make changes. Additionally, the Greener Choices site covers four main topic areas: Conserving Energy, More with Less, Reduce & Recycle and Everyday Alternatives.
