Definitions

earthy defines its products in the following manner:

What does plant-derived mean to us? 

Our definition of plant-derived means that the chemicals we use in our products come from plants. Plants provide us with a variety of benefits. Many of the benefits derived from plants are processed and refined to create byproducts from its derivatives. Plant-derived means that the ingredient being used in this product may have started as a plant, but has been refined and processed into an ingredient that helps the product perform its purpose.

 

What does non-toxic mean? 

To us, non-toxic means that the products you use should not adversely affect your health or environment. The fragrances we use come from natural sources and aren't synthetics. Our belief that our products are non-toxic is based on the safety data sheets we receive from our suppliers on the ingredients we use. We also rely on results found by third-party testing data for non-toxicity, results confirming that are products are indeed non-toxic. Like with many natural products, though, our products could result in eye irritation, and people with skin sensitivities may have a reaction to some of the fragrances or ingredients in our products.

 

What constitutes biodegradability? 

Our definition is that all earthy products will eventually biodegrade within the environment over time. For our products to biodegrade once they enter the waste stream depends on the amount of sunlight, air, and water present once the product is used. Microbes within the environment will eventually eat our ingredients. How fast depends on the above-mentioned factors. We also have had our products tested for bio-based content and are now certified USDA BioPreffered.

 

Greywater safe means that if you use a water catching system within your home for your laundry machine, or sinks; the combination of our product and the water left from using our product can be re-used in grey water applications. Most grey water applications include washing vehicles, flushing toilets, and watering plants.
