Make Your Household Cleaner, Cleaner
Most household cleaners are full of questionable chemicals that get washed down the drain, polluting not only waterways, but our bodies too. Using a naturally derived and biodegradable All-Purpose Concentrate ensures that you can clean any surface without guilt (and because it’s concentrated, without unnecessary water and carbon emissions, too). We recommend using a 10:1 ratio of water:cleaner in a 16oz glass or repurposed bottle for an environment, human, and pet-safe WIN!
Small Changes = Big Impacts
We love a tree-free moment, so instead of reaching for those paper towels use an old t-shirt to wipe down surfaces!! Old fabrics, like towels and your ex’s hoodie, are perfect materials to cut into squares for cleaning. We also carry a GORG array of Swedish Dish Cloths—they replace 17 rolls of paper towels and can be easily cleaned in the top rack of your dishwasher or your washing machine. Just let ‘em air dry!
Check Your Material!
Take your kitchen duties to the next level by making them biodegradable and plastic-free, baby! From pot scrubbers, sponges, and long-handled dish brushes with replacement heads, to bottle brushes and large all-purpose scrubbers, plant-based brushes are the way to go. Not only are they biodegradable, but they’re made of only bamboo, beechwood, agave or coconut fibers. These materials are rapidly renewable resources or grown in sustainably managed forests.
Think, "Where Does This Go?"
Don’t grab the wet wipes! Not only do wet wipes come in hard-to-recycle packaging, they take 100+ years to decompose, clogging plumbing systems and polluting waterways. Baby Wipe Spray can be adapted for multiple uses like cleaning sticky fingers, spills, booties, and everything in between. High in vitamin e and other soothing ingredients, this spray is suuuper gentle and comes in a reusable amber glass bottle.
Replace Single-Use Items!
As you’re bringing out your warmer weather wardrobe, give those fabrics a quick refresh with Wool Dryer Balls. They’re one of the easiest replacements to implement and the perfect swap for non-biodegradable dryer sheets that end up in the trash after one use. Wool balls aren’t just static reducers—they bring your energy bill down by boosting dryer efficiency. To get a scent boost, add a couple drops of essential oil and let dry 24 hours before using (just to make sure there's no oil staining on your clothes) and the heat reactivates the scent each time—yes, please!
