I had been to the ewomen's network tonight and met Joe & Denise from WOWGREEN. They started their business recently in Morgan Hill and marketing GREEN cleaning products using enzymes to clean-up the dirty surfaces with the help of surfactanst. I am glad that I cam across another green team who are conscious of the environment. Some of my customers when I am installing their landscapes ask about non-chemical products and perhaps I can mention after I use their products myself
