Greenwashing-Nothing to do with laundry!

Posted by Maria Zotali on October 6, 2014 at 12:00pm 0 Comments

We, as consumers, care about the practices of companies in relation to the environment and society and the way they produce their products. We love companies that want to make a change and do good!
