@H Great question! Only 100% natural fragrances are allowed in the yellow and green tiers of Eco-Scale. You may see this listed on label as “fragrance”, however as part of the audit process, all components of the fragrance have been carefully evaluated to ensure that they meet the definition of natural for yellow and green products.

It's great that Whole Foods is doing this. BUT, I agree with Marcus that not everything 'natural' is good for you. Are there plans to do similar labeling for cosmetics and personal care products?

I often get pretty confused in judging a company and the cost and quality of their products simply because their ingredient labels are often misleading. Especially when dealing with safety supplies, it is extremely important to know what makes up each product because there could be things that you are either allergic to or are dangerous chemicals and, if used incorrectly, it can lead to some very devastating consequences.

I always take the time to make sure I only use <a href="http://www.nokout.com">non toxic cleaners</a> around the house, especially since we had our first child last summer. It is so important to keep those poisons and toxins out of your home, it is worth the effort trust me.

Thank you for looking out for us customers by helping us get the whole story. What chemicals do you use in your food areas for cleaning? I would be interested to know how your companies cleaning decisions are made especially in your food prep areas? Are those chemicals available for purchase? If you trust em' I think most of your customers would.

@BOB - Great question. The cleaning products used in the stores is chosen based on a regional level. If you ask at your local store, they would be happy to let you know what they use!
