Sustainable Cleaning for Home and Body

This post is sponsored by EC30. All opinions are my own.

Hello, there wise-choice maker! I say that because if you’re here wanting to read about sustainable cleaning then you, my friend, are a wise person. You know the impact of your choices (small and large) and you’re ready to learn something that may change the way you shop for cleaning products for the better.

Recently, I have been choosing sustainable cleaning products for my home and body more often and the products I’ve been using work amazingly well.

I know it can be hard to find ones that check off all the boxes when it comes to what you want but today I’ll be sharing my personal favorites and my recommendations.

Let’s check off those boxes together.

First, I’ll start with sustainable cleaning products for the home.

Three Ways to Have a More Sustainable Laundry Routine

Washing Machine – A few months ago, my dryer broke. I had already had it repaired twice so decided it was time for a new one and my oldest son insisted on buying me a matching washing machine (he didn’t have to insist very hard 😉). Getting a new washing machine was the perfect opportunity to choose one that would use less water and be more energy-efficient. With those goals in mind, I did some research and chose a top-loading washer with impellers.

Laundry Detergent – Laundry Detergent is one of those products that can be overlooked when it comes to environmental impact and this is my first product recommendation. I switched to EC30 Laundry Detergent and I don’t ever want to go back. EC30 lightens the load so to speak. It doesn’t contain fillers, preservatives, emulsifiers, or suspension aids but does deliver an optimal clean and the scent is amazing! I actually like to leave the box open when I’m in the laundry room just to smell the scent while I’m sorting and folding.

Wool Dryer BallsWool Dryer Balls are easy to find (or make) and cut down on the time it takes to dry clothes and no chemicals are involved. Simply put, the action of the wool balls keeps laundry items apart thus increasing hot air circulation around each item.

Effective and Sustainable Cleaning in the Bathroom

Toilet Cleaner – My new go-to is EC30 Toilet Cleaner. No harsh chemicals, no scrubbing (unless you have a real mess on your hands!), and it’s fun to watch it work.

Just drop in a toilet cleaning packet – the product dissolves completely in just minutes. Let it sit for a few minutes or overnight and then flush. Now, admire the sparkle.

Surface Cleaner – EC30 Surface Cleaner is a powerful (yet safe) cleaning agent that cleans dirt (even the dirt you can’t see) and can be used on multiple surfaces including mirrors and windows and doesn’t leave any visual trace. I mix it up in a spray bottle (drop two swatches in a bottle and add water…shake) and then I spray it on the sink, faucets, mirrors, floor, and every other surface I want to clean.

Sustainable Cleaning for the Body

Body Wash – EC30 Body Wash is just plain fun! And, it cleans well…fun and function is the perfect combination in my book. The body wash comes in swatch form. No added water…no added chemicals. Take a swatch, let the water hit it for a few seconds and watch it erupt into a lather that is nothing short of luxurious. There’s more than enough to lather up your entire body with some suds leftover. After showering or bathing with EC30 Body Wash your skin will feel supple and moisturized.

MakeUp Eraser – I switched to a MakeUp Eraser a few months ago and I love it…because, it’s a sustainable way to remove makeup and it works wonders. No need to buy or use wipes anymore, and, did you know that wipes are the 3rd most wasteful product in the world? Once you let that sink in, it makes sense to switch.  

Final Thoughts about Sustainable Cleaning

Sustainable cleaning is good not only for the environment but for YOU! EC30 has started their journey to being carbon neutral. They’ve achieved Carbon Neutral through confirming they reduce C02 emission by 50% vs traditional liquids, then partner with the Arbor day foundation to offset what they can’t reduce today by investing in nature. Find out more about their journey to carbon neutral on their site. The benefits are amazing and are so easy to implement especially with the products mentioned above.
