Household Products to Help the Earth

Studies show that the average American produces 4.9 pounds of waste every day. Of course one person can’t lower the amount of waste billions of people create. However, being mindful of your own environmental impact and trying to make sustainable choices are small steps that anyone can make! Choices we make today can help make the world a better place for our children and future generations. Here are some of our favorite sustainable choices:

Cleaning Products

One of the sustainable cleaning options we love is laundry sheets. These look like dryer sheets, but you simply toss them in the washing machine, with your dirty laundry. They already have detergent on them, and they dissolve while the cycle runs. This creates little to no waste, as the packaging can be recycled and there is no leftover jug to throw away and fill our landfills. Other sustainable cleaning products to consider are:

  • Reusable cleaning cloths
  • Bamboo toilet paper
  • Microfiber catching ball
  • Multipurpose cleaning concentrate

Personal Products

Just like a plastic toothbrush, but made from mother earth’s best invention, bamboo. Dentist’s say this cleans just as well as the non-electric toothbrushes we are used to, but it is easier on our environment come time to toss it. Made with the highest quality nylon fibers and bamboo, and these brushes are generally free from fragrances, bpa, gluten, phosphates, silicones, and more! Other sustainable personal products we like are:

  • Window solar phone charger
  • Bamboo dental floss
  • Menstrual cup or period underwear 
  • Shampoo and conditioner bars
