Part of Lahaina Grill’s recent eco-renovation included swapping harsh kitchen cleaners for something a little easier on the environment. Restaurant owner Jurg Munch discovered EO, a cosmetics company committed to harnessing the power of beneficial herbs and essential oils rather than relying on the industry’s standard synthetic fragrances, colors and chemicals. EO’s sustainable, plant-derived products are biodegradable, nontoxic, and sodium lauryl/laureth sulfate-free.
So how does that help a restaurant kitchen? The company’s Greenwood Naturals line includes a lavender-scented all-purpose cleaner that’s earned top reviews from the Lahaina Grill staff. “We love it,” says Jurg Munch. “We use it on everything.” After all, who really wants to eat off of a plate that’s been scrubbed down with toxins? Instead, try EO’s essential oil-based soaps and leave your kitchen smelling like a rose. www.eoproducts.com
