Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) April 3, 2006 -–

Bon Ami, the earth-friendly household cleanser that generations of Americans have depended on for gentle and effective home cleaning, is celebrating its 120th anniversary by partnering with Earth Share, one of the leading advocates of environmental education in America.

Earth Share, a nationwide network of America's leading non-profit environmental and conservation organizations, works to promote environmental education and charitable giving through workplace giving campaigns.

“A clean environment should be everyone’s goal,” said David G. Beaham, President of Bon Ami Company. “You can be assured that Bon Ami is earth-friendly, the result of sticking to a philosophy that’s kept Bon Ami successful for 120 years. Bon Ami is committed to the environment, and is honored to join Earth Share and its members in reaffirming our commitment to being environmentally responsible.”

Environmentally sound cleaning tips can be found at www. bonami. com and www. earthshare. org.

The gentle, non-scratching cleaner, with the famous yellow and red label depicting a small chick emerging from an egg, has been a household name since its introduction in 1886. More famous than its trademark logo, though, is its reputation for being a versatile cleaning agent. Its many uses include cleaning and polishing hard surfaces in the home including countertops, sinks, stovetops, ceramic tile, stainless steel, cast iron cookware and even whitewall tires.

Bon Ami contains biodegradable detergent, making it a logical choice for partnership with Earth Share.

“Our product contains no chlorine, dye or perfume, which means Bon Ami is less likely to harm the environment during and after use,” said Beaham. “As a result, Bon Ami is recommended by many groups and organizations that promote non-toxic alternatives to some of todays most commonly used household products.”

Bon Ami, owned by Kansas City’s Faultless/Bon Ami Company, is available in grocery stores, mass merchandise stores, hardware stores, health food stores and mail order stores. More information on Bon Ami and its history is available at www. bonami. com.
