Amazon has a new carpet cleaning product, one that is reportedly “free to try” and will help you save money and heat in your home, according to TechCrunch.
The product, dubbed “Carpet Baggers,” is billed as an “unbiased, cost-effective and safe alternative to carpet cleaning” that will “clean your carpet without harming your carpeting.”
According to the site, the product has “proven its effectiveness to be more effective than carpet cleaners that use chemicals, which may be harmful for the carpeting, and to keep your carpet clean longer than a conventional carpet cleaner.”
According to Tech Crunch, the company’s website explains that “it is 100% non-toxic, odorless and non-irritating.”
The product’s Amazon page also lists a 10-year warranty, which Tech Crunch says is standard for “consumer products.”
The company’s founder, Michael Wahlberg, also recently launched an initiative called The Carbon Free Collection, which will “bring together carbon neutral cleaning products from leading brands to create a collection that is completely carbon neutral.”
According the site’s description, “The Carbon Free collection will consist of five carbon neutral cleaners that are designed to eliminate all trace elements in your carpet that may have an adverse effect on the quality of your carpet.”
The company has been in the spotlight for its use of “carbon neutral” cleaning products.
In 2015, the carpet cleaning giant launched a “solar-powered” cleaning device called the “Carbon Free” that uses a special type of carbon nanotubes to create “sustainable” carpeting.
The company has also been criticized for its reliance on coal, as well as for its support of the oil and gas industry.
Last year, the tech giant was accused of promoting carbon emissions in the environment.
TechCrunch reported that Amazon had partnered with a coal-burning utility, Pacific Gas and Electric, in an effort to combat climate change.
Amazon’s efforts to reduce carbon emissions have been largely ignored by regulators and environmental groups.
However, the retailer’s commitment to “sustainability” may be a sign of things to come, as more companies will look to reduce their carbon footprint.
Tech Crunch also noted that Amazon has plans to begin selling its own “green” products, and that “the company is reportedly preparing to sell some of its products to countries like India, which could lead to a global market for carbon-free products.”
