Safe for you, your home, and your planet™


Get Clean™ products use biodegradable cleaning agents, which means they break down easily instead of hanging out in the ground for hundreds of years. They also have no phosphates, borates, nitrates, or other stuff the planet doesn't appreciate. And by making them superconcentrated, we leave you to add water so we can subtract waste. This has tons of implications. Literally. Less weight to ship. Less product to use. Less packaging to throw away. So you can get that clean feeling about your house, knowing you're keeping the planet clean, too.


When you buy the Get Clean Starter Kit instead of the stuff you probably buy:

  • You keep 108 pounds of packaging waste out of landfills
  • You eliminate 248 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions


  • Sustainably sourced natural ingredients 
  • Biodegradable surfactants
  • Recyclable packaging
  • Recyclable wipes
  • Recyclable dryer sheets 
  • No chlorine bleach
  • No volatile organic cleaning compounds
  • No phosphates
  • No nitrates
  • No borates
  • No animal testing

How Green Drinks Started!

How it all started5_308no_resize


In 1989, at a pub called the Slug and Lettuce in Northern London, Edwin Datschefski was sitting with his green design colleagues Yorick Benjamin and Paul Scott when he noticed an enviro-minded acquaintance at a nearby table. As it turned out, the friend was sitting with a few of his own eco-conscious mates, so they pulled some tables together. And so a movement was born.


The concept evolved into Green Drinks and now it's global. In 2001, Datschefski created an official Web site, and it has since spread across the world. See www.greendrinks.org for the latest city count and a list of countries. Each city has an 1316organiser who arranges meetings in bars and restaurants, relays information via email, and facilitates discussions.

The spirit of Green Drinks is that anyone can come, and this makes for interesting interactions.
There are lots of benefits to green drinks; they are hard to quantify, but when you have seen people come and make new links and learn and argue and set up new schemes and get new jobs etc, it is a good feeling.

Clear Water Outdoor Earth Day Celebration!

We hope everyone had a great weekend!

This past weekend Brandon and I had the privilege of stopped by Big Foot Beach State Park in Lake Geneva, WI. 34297115_a5390980ef

Clear Water Outdoor had their 5th Annual Earth Day Celebration and where collaborating with the Friends of BFBSP.  The event had everything from park clean up, Frisbee Golf and Kayak Demos followed by drawings, where all of the proceeds went to BFBSP!!!   



Clear Water Outdoor works with Friends of Big Foot State Park!




  If you have never been to BFBSP and you live in the area I highly suggest that you try to make it out there, it is beautiful!

I was surprised to see so many different kinds of kayaks available for people to try!

Don’t forget to wear your life jackets!!


Here is where all of the amazing raffles took place including the green kayak on the right!


Raffling off the winners!


The origin of the Clear Water Outdoor name is rooted from the Potowatomi Indians.  The Indian name for Geneva Lake was "Kishwauketoe", which means "clear water." Their beginnings are rooted in the idea of connecting friends and family and oneself to the outdoors. As a family owned business, they want to support you in your efforts to get active, have fun and be connected.

Visit their store on main street in downtown Lake Geneva. Their staff will be there to help you find the perfect outfit and right gear for your next adventure..


Do you know of any green local events around this area? If so we would love to check it out!
