Cleaning your home is not only important for a healthy and happy life, but it's also essential for our planet's wellbeing. Did you know that the cleaning products you choose can make a big impact on the environment? Let's clean up our homes while keeping the Earth clean too!
Traditional cleaning products are often filled with harmful chemicals that can be damaging to the planet and our health. That's why sustainable cleaning essentials are becoming increasingly popular. By opting for eco-friendly cleaning products and tools, we can minimize our carbon footprint and reduce waste. In this post, we'll share some simple yet effective sustainable cleaning essentials for your living room, bedroom, kitchen, laundry room, and bathroom that can help you maintain a clean and healthy home while also protecting the environment.
What Can You Do From Floors to Windows?
Products that can be used in every part of the home are perhaps the most important for a sustainable cleaning routine. Start with The E-Cloth Deep Clean Mop to achieve clean floors without the need for harsh chemicals, or single use mop pads. Pair it with MomRemedy's Better Everything Household Cleaner and Stain Remover made from natural ingredients to have a cleaning solution that's effective and eco-friendly. As Flora, we offer you to use Nimby Compressed Towels as an eco-friendly alternative to disposable paper towels, reducing landfill waste. Our favorite E-Cloth Window Cleaning Kit designed with sustainability in mind can help you achieve spotless windows without leaving behind harmful residues.
What Is Best For Your Kitchen?
Our BeyondGREEN Plant-Based 3 Gallon Trash Liner Bags are an excellent alternative to traditional plastic trash bags that can take time to break down. These liners are made from renewable resources and can be composted after use. Net Zero CO’s Reusable Paper Towels can replace disposable paper towels, which contribute to landfill waste. They can be used multiple times and are often made from eco-friendly materials such as bamboo or organic cotton.
When it comes to cleaning produce, we believe that Eatcleaner’s Biodegradable Food Grade Wipes and Veggie Wash Spray are great options. Made from natural ingredients, these wipes and sprays are designed to remove dirt and harmful pesticides from fruits and vegetables without leaving behind any chemical residue. Plus, why not choosing Bio-Home Dishwashing Liquid made from plant-based ingredients instead of traditional ones can reduce your exposure to harmful chemicals.
What Is Best For Your Bathroom?
Flora’s several Bar Soaps are a great example of a sustainable option that can be used in your bathroom. Not only is it more eco-friendly than liquid soap, but it also often comes in minimal packaging, which reduces waste. Our favorite Norfolk's Botanical Cleaning Spray, which is a bathroom cleaner, is an effective and safe alternative to traditional chemical-based cleaners. Made from plant-based ingredients, natural bathroom cleaners are gentle on the environment and your family.
What Is Best For Your Laundry?
In the laundry room, there are several sustainable and effective alternatives to traditional laundry detergents. Nantucket’s Footprint Laundry Detergent Sheets are more eco-friendly as they typically come in recyclable packaging and use less water. Our favorite Good Natured Laundry Soda is a natural cleaning agent that is gentle on fabrics and can be used in low-temperature washes, reducing energy consumption. Bio-Home Laundry Detergent made from plant-based ingredients is best for those looking to reduce their environmental impact.
Switching to sustainable cleaning products is not only beneficial for the environment, but also for our health and overall well-being. By using eco-friendly cleaning products, you can reduce your carbon footprint, minimize exposure to harmful chemicals, and create a healthier living environment for ourselves and future generations.
