San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 15, 2012
Biokleen has just launched four $1-off coupons on http://www.CommonKindness.com, joining the effort to help create a new source of funding for America’s favorite nonprofit organizations. Biokleen’s essential oil and fruit extract-based products are gentle on the skin while being nontoxic, biodegradable, nonflammable, and free of harsh chemicals and synthetic fragrances. Now consumers can save money and help support their favorite charities when they purchase Biokleen products using coupons from CommonKindness.
“The prolonged economic downturn has people trying to do more with less, and they are increasingly turning to coupons,” said James Mannion of Biokleen. “We chose to post our coupons on CommonKindness because we like the company’s reach and the exposure they bring us through their coupon site, public relations channels, and relationship with the online coupon community. We also love being part of giving back to the community.”
Giving to the community is nothing new to Biokleen. An active promoter of a healthy lifestyle, Biokleen celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2009 by contributing to 20 charitable groups and events. These included EarthShare California, The Chicago Wetlands Initiative, Keep Austin Beautiful, Seattle EarthCorps, and youth soccer clubs and other youth outreach programs.
“Biokleen’s leadership in natural cleaning products is very impressive, and we are very excited that we are able to offer their coupons on the CommonKindness site,” said CommonKindness president Sarah Schloemer. “I also found inspiration in the story of BioKleen founder Jim Rimer’s entrepreneurial spirit, ingenuity, and tenacity that started the company on the road to becoming the success it is today.”
Rimer was a sales rep for a chemical-rich cleaning supply company in the 1980s. After hearing complaints of negative side-effects from his customers after they used these products, Rimer conducted research and found that the products he was selling were poisonous. After a fruitless attempt to convince his employer to change course, he was asked to leave.
While cleaning carpets to pay the bills, Rimer spent his nights developing Biokleen’s first natural cleaning supplies in his garage in a large drum using a wooden oar for a mixing spoon. He filled bottles by hand and sold his product door-to-door to the natural food stores that were sprouting up around town. Through the leadership of his daughter Cindy, Biokleen has grown quickly and responsibly.
Family-owned and -operated, Biokleen employs green manufacturing principles. One-hundred percent of the energy and water used in its plant is offset through the BEF’s Renewable Energy and Water Restoration program. The CommonKindness partnership is yet another way Biokleen is helping make the world a better place.
To get Biokleen coupons, shoppers simply go to http://www.CommonKindness.com, quickly register, and designate their favorite nonprofit from the user-friendly directory. They then select Biokleen coupons and printable grocery coupons for other product coupons they typically use or want to try, and head to the store. For each coupon redeemed, CommonKindness donates 20% of the distribution fee it receives from the Biokleen or other brand to the shopper’s designated nonprofit.
