ENJO – a cleaning system that protects the environment
by Avril Erskine
On Tuesday, I had a fantastic introduction to the Ranches Ladies membership at the ENJO presentation. Who knew a presentation on cleaning systems could be so interesting? The ENJO team had me hooked with their sustainability and clean air agendas. It confirmed to me what I’ve instinctively known for a while, that back to basic cleaning with water, lemon juice, vinegar and baking soda water is the way to go. Add to that the magic ENJO sponges, all-purpose cleaning cloths, mop pads and home-made orange blossom air-freshener, and I’m now convinced that it’s time to go all in. There’s even a tutorial on how to optimise the products and clean effectively, thrown in.
Thanks to Josephine’s enviable powers of organisation and liaison, there was an impressive turn-out of women on the morning and a buzz in the air. The perfect audience and network for ENJO, I would say, particularly, given their past membership of Ranches Ladies. Everywhere I turned there was a great conversation to be had and Studio One was the perfect venue.
One of the charms of the presentation was a number of impromptu contributions from customers who had discovered ENJO years earlier and could attest to the value and integrity of the products. Also, the presenter, Diane’s story about the effect of chemicals on her health and how she was able to turn this around was really an extraordinary testimony. It’s always great to hear about the genesis of a good business idea and how it transitions into being. All of the above has convinced me to give it a try.
It was a fantastic inaugural event for this new member. I already feel I’m getting great value from joining Ranches Ladies. More like this please!
