...and the green box TSP Substitute PF is phosphate free...I thought that was the only difference between the two?

OK, before anyone makes a snide remark here I'll correct myself...duh...of COURSE a phosphate-free version of TSP is NOT TSP but a completely different set of chemical ingredients.  :-[   
If I remember correctly, PBW is phosphate-free and an alkali, similar to TSP Substitute PF.  In doing a brief search, it appears the chemical makeup of both products is proprietary but I'm sure someone out there has "inside" info on both.

OK, so TSP substitute does less harm ecologically, that makes sense.
