Household cleaning products are some of the worst offenders when it comes to their negative impact on the environment. Not only are they full of harsh chemicals which pose risks to plants and animals but millions of the plastic bottles sent to landfill each year once contained some form of household cleaning product.
Fortunately, there are more sustainable and natural alternatives to household cleaning products on the market in 2022 than ever before. Making the switch from regular cleaning products to eco cleaning products is one of most effective ways that you can improve your environmental impact, dramatically reducing your plastic waste output. Natural cleaning products also contain none of the harmful chemicals that pose health risks through accidental inhalation or skin contact – they’re better for the planet and better for you, too.
If you’re ready to make the switch, take a look at some of the best eco cleaning products UK households can try for themselves!
The Friendly Soap Kitchen Bar is a fantastic alternative to traditional dish and surface cleaners.
Free of plastic packaging, cruelty, sulfates, preservatives and palm oil, this multi-purpose cleaner can be used to leave dishes and surfaces sparkling clean and smelling fresh. It can even be used as a pre-wash laundry treatment, rubbed directly into stubborn clothing stains before washing. Its refreshing lemon and lime scent is all-natural and perfect for the kitchen.
While most traditional kitchen sponges are made from synthetic materials, the Friendly Soap Kitchen Sponge is made from sustainably sourced, plant-based materials. The sponge is double-sided, with one side created using all-natural cellulose and the tough scourer side made from coconut fibres, offering natural scrubbing fibres.
This product is long-lasting and can be used again and again – and, once you’re done, this biodegradable sponge can even be composted.
Bamboo kitchen brush
The Friendly Soap Kitchen Brush is an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional dish brushes, created used natural plant fibre bristles and an easy-to-grip bamboo handle. The bristles provide effective cleaning and are capable of lifting stubborn stains, without being so harsh that they scratch your plates and bowls – perfect for easy, all-natural washing up.
Eco non-bio washing powder
Gentle and fragrance-free, the Friendly Soap Washing Powder is kind to skin, kind to clothes and kind to the planet. Unlike a lot of other leading laundry powders, the eco non-bio formula is created without phosphates, sulfates or fluorescent whitening agents. Each pack contains up to 25 washes, making it fantastic value for money.
Millions of plastic detergent bottles go to landfill every year, where they won’t even start to break down for centuries – that’s why we’ve packaged this product using recyclable, compostable and biodegradable materials, ensuring it won’t damage the environment once you’ve finished it.
