Green Cleaning

Environmental Footprint

NCL is committed to environmental sustainability
…past, present and future.

At NCL, all of our efforts are focused toward the development of green cleaning solutions, and to leading the efforts in creating a more positive environmental and health profile. NCL chemists are committed to continually evaluating and improving our formulations in this regard.

The definition of "green" and our understanding of it changes continually. It is often said that "going green" is a "journey", not a "destination." This means that as our understanding of the effects of using chemicals in our environment evolves; our goals and motivation for product chemistry must evolve and keep in step with our increasing knowledge. "Green" will always be equated with the issues of Human Health, Environmental Health, and Sustainability.

We must each do our part and be willing to change our mindset and habits and adopt new and innovative products and procedures. Today and for the future, NCL is dedicated to researching and developing products based on sustainable bio-renewable surfactants, solvents and other natural resources. The result is our Earth Sense® products that match or improve upon traditional cleaning performance standards, but also move us closer to environmental sustainability.

Earth Sense® represents the NCL commitment and dedication to environmentally responsible cleaning products that minimize environmental impact, provide a more positive health profile, reduce impact on air and water quality and provide optimum cleaning efficacy at a reasonable cost. Cleaning products must work effectively and need to make sense for the environment, as well as for current and future generations. That's Earth Sense®.

In addition to removing Phosphates from all NCL formulations (earlier this decade), other hazardous ingredients such as CFCs and Lead are no longer used. NCL continually strives toward a more positive environmental profile for our products.
