Our Commitment

Our Commitment To Our Planet

Aside from protecting people from harmful chemical exposure, U-Mix-It Safe Spray® seeks to protect our planet's air, soil and water resources. Using U-Mix-It Safe Spray® recipe spray bottles to mix homemade solutions will help people play an important part in this process. Here is why U-Mix-It Safe Spray® wants to encourage others to take action now:

  • According to a U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), more than two-thirds of streams tested were polluted with breakdown products of detergents and disinfectants.
  • Every day American households pour more than 32 million pounds of household cleaning products down their drains. That's almost 12 billion pounds of chemical waste annually!
  • Even when used properly, cleaners are rinsed down the drain and eventually released with the effluent of wastewater treatment plants and septic tanks into our ground and surface waters.
  • Conventional cleaners contain compounds such as aromatic hydrocarbons, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), chlorines, petrochemicals, and phosphates. These chemicals are linked to environmental problems such as smog, declining animal reproductive rates, and water quality degradation.
  • Each year, the average American household generates and throws away more than 15 pounds of HHW (unused cleaning, gardening, paint and automotive products).
  • Every year more than 4.5 billion pounds of HHW is discarded into landfills and the environment.
  • Every year more than one million children are accidentally poisoned at home, and 70% of those cases involve substances used commonly in most homes such as cleaning products.

Our Commitment To People

U-MIX-IT Safe Spray® and Clean Home Clean Water™ campaign 5% Donation To Clean Water (Clean Water Project logo and images inserted here)

When you purchase a Green & Clean 4 Pack Kit™ you will be supporting the efforts of our Clean Home Clean Water™ campaign which helps fund clean drinking water and hygiene/sanitation improvements to impoverished nations across the globe.

Here's why we want to help:

  • More than 1 billion people on the planet do not have access to clean drinking water.
  • A child dies every 15 seconds from a lack of clean water.
  • 1 in 4 children who die before age 5 worldwide, die of a water related disease.
  • Children often walk miles every day to collect dirty water to drink.
  • Just one dollar will provide enough clean drinking water for one person for an entire year.

The ultimate purpose behind the entire U-Mix-It Safe Spray® product line is to encourage and equip people to use homemade solutions that will not poison people, pets or our planet – specifically our water resources. Studies have shown that more than two-thirds of American waterways tested were polluted with breakdown products from detergents, disinfectants and garden chemicals. In addition, American pour more than 32 million pounds of household cleaning chemicals down the drain everyday. Most people don't realize that what gets poured down the drain eventually gets discharge back into our waterways. So, it's important for us to make an effort in preserving the quality of our own water resources.

For billions of people living in impoverished countries, their concern is not in preserving clean water, but rather in finding clean water! The Clean Home Clean Water™ campaign hopes to draw a connection between our clean water needs (here in the U.S.) with the clean water needs of the poor and impoverished abroad. When you buy a Green and Clean Home & Garden Kit™, we will make a one dollar donation to The Water Project™, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that's bringing relief to communities around the world who suffer needlessly from a lack of access to clean water. With the Green and Clean Home & Garden Kit™ and Clean Home Clean Water™ campaign, you can help ensure that our American waterways remain pollution-free while helping to provide clean drinking water to those in need!
