Six of the Best Eco-Friendly Cleaning Brands You Should Try

Making the decision to invest in eco-friendly cleaning products for your home is actually one of the easiest ways to ensure you’re living a greener life.

Fortunately, many of us are turning to more eco-friendly options and challenging the mainstream brands regarding single-use plastic and harmful chemicals.

So, in this blog, we’ll be outlining six of our favourite eco-friending cleaning brands. But, first, let’s define exactly what an ‘eco-friendly’ cleaning brand actually means.

What Makes a Cleaning Product “Eco-Friendly”?

Very simply, an eco-friendly cleaning product should strive for the following:

  • Free of toxic chemicals
  • Contain biodegradable ingredients
  • Plant-based
  • Compostable or recyclable packaging
  • Refillable
  • Waste-free
  • Vegan and/or cruelty-free

That being said, not every eco-friendly brand will be able to tick all of these boxes, so it’s down to you to think about what problems you’re looking to solve by opting for greener cleaning, i.e. reducing plastic waste and go from there.

Eco-Brand #1: Clean Living

Eco-cleaning brand, Clean Living, uses a refill system. The brand uses concentrated pouches of plant-based cleaning mixtures and refillable metal bottles to prevent customers needing to rely on single-use plastics.

Their range – including glass cleaners, kitchen cleaner and degreaser amongst other things – is 100% natural, PH neutral, vegan friendly and non-damaging to the ocean. Once the sachets have you been used, they can be returned to be recycled too!
