Squeaky clean? Cleaning products under scrutiny at NYC sustainability summit

The cleaning products sector is arguably still playing catch-up in the intensifying debate about the sustainability and environment credentials of consumer products.

With growing concerns about the health and environmental impacts of cleaning products, how can brands ‘clean up’ their formulations? What developments are occurring in green surfactants? What sustainable sources of feedstock are emerging? What is the outlook for green labels / sustainability schemes? How can metrics assist home care companies and ingredient firms on the green journey? What do consumers look for in natural cleaning products?

These are some of the questions that will be addressed at the third Sustainable Cleaning Products Summit, which will be held in New York City on 2-3rd May.

Organizer Organic Monitor says the aim of the summit is “to advance sustainability in the cleaning products industry by debating key issues in a high-level forum”.
