Our products save water

Our products require less (or no) rinsing, no re-washes and very little scrubbing. This means you save water, while getting a real, green clean.

Gentle on your skin

Our enzymes are non-toxic, non-irritating, non-gaseous, non-flammable, non-pathogenic and non-hazardous – in short, they’re tough on dirt, gentle on skin, and good for the environment.


We use effective naturally derived, biodegradable ingredients. Containing no harmful chemicals, the surfactants in our products are biodegradable. We use nature’s bug-eating power to demolish dirt and obliterate germs without harming the environment.

We stand against animal testing

We believe animals are our best friends, not test subjects. We harness the power of nature, by using what she freely offers – no more, no less. We’d never test on animals, and neither should you.

Energy saving products

Our products are highly effective, even in cold water – in fact, our bugs prefer it that way. Less heat means less energy, it’s a win-win.

We do way more than clean your conscience.

Why we do what we do

For the last decade, we’ve worked hard to educate the market about the need for greener living, cleaner results and smarter practices. We do this because we know that the planet is finite, and its resources are limited. The time has come where ignorance of our effect on the planet could be our own downfall. This is why the time to be an #ecowarrior is now.

Green Worx’s mission is to live the philosophy of “bio-excellence”, using innovation to provide solutions that will improve the quality, performance and safety of products, with a constant focus on our environmental impact and meeting your needs. Our vision is to provide biotech solutions, finding better ways to get things clean.

What makes us green?

Many of the chemicals in traditional cleaning products cause harm to the environment and the people exposed to them. We’re green because our products contain no harmful chemicals, the surfactants are biodegradable, and we use nature’s bug-eating power to demolish dirt and obliterate germs.

The enzymes used are non-toxic, non-irritating, non-gaseous, non-flammable, non-pathogenic and non-hazardous. They clean better than germicidal cleaners because they digest the dirt and germs, eliminating them rather than moving them around.

Our products have been tried and tested, and our various industry certifications reflect our dedication to superior, truly green cleaning solutions.

We are an ISO 14001, SABS1828, Green Tag and GBCSA Green Star certified company, by appointing Green Worx Cleaning Solutions to manage your green cleaning procurement you automatically qualify to the same certification allowing our customers to advertise or state that their Green Cleaning Management Practices are compliant to International Standards.
