5 Environmentally Friendly Ways to Level Up Your Cleaning Game This Global Recycling Day

5 Environmentally Friendly Ways to Level Up Your Cleaning Game This Global Recycling Day

March 18th marks Global Recycling Day around the world. With that in mind, we need to be aware of our environmental footprint, ensuring we take the right steps to create a cleaner, greener, more environmentally friendly future. We all know that many cleaning products contain harsh chemicals or non-biodegradable material that pollutes our environment, and many of us no longer want to use these types of products in our homes. To help level up your cleaning game, especially this close to Global Recycling Day, we have 5 environmentally friendly cleaning tips to share with you.

1. Invest in environmentally friendly cleaning products

Environmentally friendly cleaning products are the key to a greener, more sustainable future. An environmentally friendly multi-purpose cleaner is an excellent choice. Made without the need for harsh chemicals, our CLEANERTABS dissolvable cleaning tablets are perfect for use all over the house and safe around pets and children. Plus, the compact tablets and plastic-free packaging make it an even more environmentally conscious choice. Another example, paper towel is a convenient choice, but the downside is that it needs to be disposed of after use. Reusable cleaning cloths are a better alternative both for environmental reasons and otherwise as they are machine washable, highly absorbent, and specially designed to be non-abrasive whilst easily picking up dirt and grime.

2. Use cleaning products with recyclable or biodegradable packaging

For many households, recycling is a must, which is why we do our absolute best to create packaging that is plastic-free, recyclable, and biodegradable (where possible). We also take into account the harm that single-use products cause within the environment, and we strive to ensure our products and their packaging are made sustainably and can be reused for as long as possible. Recyclable cleaning is the way of the future, and we are absolutely here for it.

3. Sell, donate, and reuse as much as you can

When you’re planning a whole-house clean and declutter, it’s important to consider how much waste you’re creating simply by throwing out items that are no longer needed. There are many other ways to declutter aside from binning everything you no longer need. You could donate clothes and household items to a charity organisation, host a garage sale or sell items online for a little extra cash, ask friends and family if they could use the items, and you might even find a new use for something old (eg. bowls and mugs make great planters for smaller house plants) - there are plenty of options out there if you take a little time to consider them.

4. Think long-term with your cleaning

Reducing the frequency of cleaning means reducing water wastage, product usage, and excessive elbow grease on your part. Investing in products such as household nanocoat solutions that help keep your home cleaner for longer is a great way to embrace an environmentally friendly cleaning routine.

5. Do your research – are your products actually environmentally friendly?

Researching ingredients and company practices surrounding the cleaning products you use is one of the best ways to ensure your choices are actually environmentally friendly. Check to see what information is listed on the packaging, as well as online, so you can make an informed decision as to which cleaning products you choose to use.

There you have it! Those are our top 5 tips to help you make environmentally friendly cleaning choices this Global Recycling Day. Investing in environmentally friendly, sustainable cleaning is all part of the process of helping our planet flourish and thrive for as long as we possibly can.
