Spring is officially here, and with that comes…drum roll please…spring cleaning! Whether you are doing the dirty work yourself or not, I can’t stress enough how important it is to use eco-friendly products in your home. Not only are the products featured below good for the earth, but they are good for your health as well. And for those of you with the pitter-patter of little feet running around (human, canine, or otherwise!) it becomes even more important for you to learn about these five orGLAMic alternatives.
Sterlin products are non-toxic, plant-based and biodegradable and come in super chic packaging! They have a heavenly-scented Minty-Fresh Lavender Home collection as well as a Yoga & Fitness collection to keep your workout gear clean. Made of renewable resources, none of the products are tested on animals and the recyclable packaging is so orGLAMic and beautiful that you can keep the bottles visible without creating an eyesore.
Just in time for spring, Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Arometheraputic Home Cleaners are some of the most delightfully scented products available. Available in Geranium, Basil, Lavender, Lemon Verbena, Baby Blossom and scent-free versions, Mrs. Meyer’s makes everything from basic cleaners and surface wipes to candles and baby diaper balm. All the cruelty-free products are also biodegradable and phosphate-free.
One of the pioneers of environmentally responsible household cleaning products, Seventh Generation acts as a one-stop shop for all orGLAMic household products. Offering everything from recycled garbage bags and petroleum-free dishwashing detergent to natural spectrum light bulbs and chlorine-free diapers, you can feel good knowing that these products are good for you, your loved ones, and the planet.
The natural, plant-based cleaning products from J.R. Watkins’s are divine in my book. The non-toxic, biodegradable items are free of phosphates, ammonia, bleach, formaldehyde, parabens, sulfates and many other harmful ingredients found in conventional cleaners. The Aloe & Green Tee Dish Soap is by my kitchen sink at the moment, and believe it or not, the scent almost makes me want to do the dishes myself – almost! Maybe Lavender, Orange Citrus or Lemon will do the trick?
Known for their sleek, chic packaging, Method products are also made of eco-friendly ingredients that are good for both body and home. The non-toxic products are made of natural or naturally derived ingredients that are non-irritating and non-hazardous. Their newest laundry detergent is 95% plant-based and concentrated, which leads to less packaging, shipping waste and mess at home. Uber orGLAMic, if you ask me.
