BENTONVILLE, Ark., Nov. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --To further the company's
commitment to making eco-friendly products more accessible and affordable,
Walmart today announced the introduction of Great Value Naturals, a new line
of all-natural cleaning products that are as effective as leading conventional
cleaners. The products are available now in more than 2,000 Walmart stores
across the U.S. and will be available soon on Walmart.com.

"The launch of Great Value Naturals is an important step in making green
cleaning habits an affordable option for millions of consumers," said Alberto
Dominguez, Walmart vice president and divisional merchandise manager. "Many
consumers have the perception that all-natural cleaners are more expensive and
don't work as well as traditional cleaning products. Great Value Naturals
addresses those concerns by combining affordability, performance and care for
the environment."

Great Value Naturals cleaning products are made from plant-based, all-natural
Evolve® cleaning technology and are sold exclusively at Walmart. The products
are 100 percent chemical-free and toxin-free, biodegradable, non-allergenic
and packaged in recyclable materials.

The line includes four natural cleaning products available at Walmart's
everyday low prices:

  oGreat Value Naturals Liquid Laundry Detergent: $8.97 for a 100 fluid
    ounce bottle (64 loads)
  oGreat Value Naturals Multi-Surface Cleaner: $2.47 for a 32 fluid ounce
    sprayer
  oGreat Value Naturals Glass and Window Cleaner: $1.98 for a 32 fluid ounce
    sprayer
  oGreat Value Naturals Automatic Dishwasher Gel: $3.97 for a 75 fluid ounce
    bottle

Evolve is the first all-natural cleaning technology that is lab-tested to
achieve results at levels of efficacy previously seen only through the use of
petroleum-based cleaners, detergents, degreasers and solvents. The technology
effectively captures and breaks down soils, grease, grime and odor-causing
bacteria without leaving harmful residues or irritants behind on skin,
surfaces or the environment.

"As the first green technology to match the potency of chemical cleaners,
products with Evolve-based technology deliver a level of clean that consumers
often notice after a single use," said Benjamin Shell, CEO of Agaia, makers of
Evolve. "It's no longer necessary to sacrifice the familiar strength of
traditional cleaners to have a toxic-free environment at home. With products
made from Evolve-based technology, consumers get the best of both worlds –
superior cleaning and all-natural safety – for the first time."
