10 Eco-Friendly Cleaning Products Safe For Home & Planet!
Do you participate in Spring Cleaning?
You’re not alone. The history of spring cleaning dates back thousands of years including cultural and religious traditions from the Middle East and China.
In the 19th century, the warmer weather of early Spring finally allowed people to open doors and windows after a long, dark cold winter. This was necessary to air out and thoroughly clean homes of dust and residue from coal stoves and fireplaces.
Spring cleaning continues today however, not all cleaning products are equally good for healthy environments.
Cleaning products can contribute to water pollution, air pollution and increased waste in landfills due to the chemicals within and the packaging it’s placed in.
“Even after passing through water treatment plants, small quantities of chemical compounds from cleaning products can find their way into rivers, ponds and lakes and have adverse effects on aquatic life. Phosphates in laundry and dishwasher detergent have a fertilising effect, triggering the widespread growth of algae that saps away the water’s oxygen, reducing biodiversity.
That’s why we’ve put together this list of ” 10 Eco-Friendly Cleaning Products For Spring” to help clean up your home without added harm to the planet!

- durable (no glass to break), and
- low waste (100% curbside recyclable)
Their bath & body lineup combines these benefits in one easy-to-use refill system, with their Can Pump Kit. Convert their cans into a ready-to-use dispenser for in the shower, by the sink, or wherever they need to be to stay clean.
