Playing a Big Role in Many Critical Issues

Clorox bleach has a wide range of sanitation uses that you might find surprising. As the world's most available disinfectant, it plays a special role in a variety of unique environmental cases. We are proud to provide bleach used in these efforts and are committed in helping raise awareness about these issues.

California Oaks Saving the Vanishing Oak

The namesake oak trees in downtown Oakland are being killed by a pathogen that infects their water supply. The California Department of Forestry uses bleach to help prevent the spread of the disease. In addition to supplying bleach, Clorox has funded a program to help tree-planting groups and to increase awareness by bringing the story of the vanishing oak trees to 4000 schools throughout the state.

Endangered Frogs

Clorox has teamed up with Animal Planet to help fund a multimedia project calling attention to a deadly fungus that is destroying frog and amphibian populations. All the tools used in the frog rescue are disinfected with Clorox bleach to help prevent the spread.
