Still, finding effective (and truly green) products isn't easy. When tidbit bistro opened in Seattle in 2007, co-owner John van Deinse started to use a green sanitizer. But he wasn't sure how green the product really was. He also wasn't entirely satisfied with the green floor cleaner he was using. “There's a lot of ambiguity,” says van Deinse. He partnered with Boston-based Green Restaurant Association for guidance and found an effective, biodegradable floor cleaner made with enzymes that break down dirt and grease. “For me, just looking at the brighter color of the floor makes it worth it,” he says.
