Achieve Clean - Natural Detergent for a Great Cause!

$5,650

Achieve Laundry Detergent is more than just an environmentally-friendly cleaning product. The mission of this detergent is to provide meaningful employment opportunities for individuals with developmental disabilities and 100% of the proceeds go toward accomplishing that goal. Despite their eagerness to work, diverse talents, and infectiously positive attitudes, people with developmental disabilities have one of the highest unemployment rates of any demographic. Achieve is working to solve that problem one load of laundry at a time!

 THE PRODUCT

There are many compelling reasons for consumers to purchase Achieve Clean Laundry Detergent:

  • Environmentally-Friendly - Achieve Clean Laundry Detergent contains no dyes or petroleum - it is water-based and free from harmful additives. We have recently passed the initial approval stages for the EPA's Safer Choice designation.
  • Unscented - There are no artificial scents added to the detergent, which means it is unlikely to trigger allergies.
  • Cost Efficient - Compare the cost per load with other brands and you'll find that Achieve detergent is competitively priced! You don't have to spend more to get a better product for a better cause.
  • HE Compatible - Achieve Clean is formulated to work in high-efficiency washing machines as well as standard washers.
  • Made in the U.S.A. - Our detergent is manufactured and bottled in Minnesota.
  • Wash with a Cause! - The best reason to switch to Achieve Clean Laundry Detergent is that 100% of the proceeds go to support job training and programs for people with disabilities. Additionally, the detergent is bottled, labeled, and sold by people with disabilities so when you buy this product, you support their jobs!

THE MISSION

The mission and purpose of this organization is to provide employment training and business experience for adults with developmental disabilities. These activities and experiences teach the organization’s clients transferable life and vocational skills which enhance self-confidence and self-esteem, and foster independence.

One hundred percent of the proceeds from Achieve Laundry Detergent are invested directly back into programs that create jobs for people with developmental disabilities.

TAX DEDUCTIONS

Achieve Clean LLC is a registered 501(c)(3) in the state of Minnesota. This means that contributions are tax deductible as allowed by law.
