Berkley Green Products

a special feature from Kay & Leslie, founders

Clean, Safe & Smart PHOTO #2Do you care about your health and well being…not only for yourself, but also for your family? We do! At we are pleased to present Berkley Green, a company that produces safe and effective household cleaners, laundry and baby products, all tested and approved by the EPA/DfE (Environmental Protection Agency/Design for the Environment) and the NSF (National Science Foundation). What does this mean? Quite simply it means that you as a consumer are guaranteed that these products are pesticide free (yes, cleaning products have pesticides in them), and chemical and dye free. Berkley Green is one of a handful of EPA Certified companies for Safer Green Chemistry. This company produces cleaning goods actually approved and safe for you and the environment.  Just because a product label catches your attention with words like ‘organic’ and ‘natural’, does not necessarily mean the product has an EPA seal. Get smart, get safe, and start looking for the EPA label.

Berkley Green is the brainchild of one woman, Sherry Berkley, who is actively involved in the race to eliminate unnatural health hazards found in cleaning agents. So committed is the company that they want you, the consumer, to understand clean is not a fragrance; clean is odorless and without color.

We love their products, all of them– tested and tried by Grandparentslink personally.  You can purchase these products online at, , or at stores such as Key Foods, Stop & Shop, Giant Foods, Piggly Wiggly, Harris Teeter, and selected health food stores. From detergents to multi-surface cleaners, to hand washing soap, just to name a few, we give Berkley Green two thumbs up. They also now offer an entire line of baby products, such as Bottle and Toy Wash, perfect for pacifiers, dishes and anything else, to an all-purpose Baby Safe Cleaner for household surfaces like cribs. Of course, there ‘s a Baby Laundry Detergent, Baby Wipes, and an EPA certified Baby Odor Remover for those diaper pails.

Now we’ve given you some good info to digest; some cleaning products can contribute to health hazards such as acute and respiratory irritations. There is a school of thought that believes many household products have a direct link to chronic or long-term effects such as cancer. Pretty scary, huh?  Remember, just because something claims it’s natural, doesn’t always mean it’s safe. Carefully read the labels.
