Recently I have been on the hunt for “green” cleaning products, trying to slowly replace tired sponges, scrubbers and wipes with eco-friendly alternatives that have recently become accessible and easy to find.
Scotch-Brite is now offering a whole line of Greener Clean products offering “simple, eco-advantages for daily tasks.” Although I hate calling cleaning a “daily task.” they do have something for anything you may run into. These Scotch-Brite Greener Clean Products are: Reusable cleaning solutions, contains recycled content and/or packaging, incorporates use of natural materials like bamboo, agave and corn, and eliminates the need for daily disposable cleaning tools. (1+1 = Saving Money and the Environment!)
They’re offering Natural Fiber Non-Scratch Scrub Sponge/Scour Pad, Soap Loaded Scrubber, Natural Bamboo Cloths, Bamboo Wipes, Biodegradable Absorbent Sponge, Biodegradable Expanding Soft Sponge smf Biodegradable Absorbent Cloth.
I’ve tried the Bamboo Wipes and the Natural Fiber Non-Scratch Scrub Sponge/Scour Pads. I can tell you, I feel better using them AND they actually work fantastic. Dare say it, better than any other wipe or scour pad I’ve tried.
Find them for yourselves, but I did find mine on clearance at Target.
My second find (happily at Target on clearance as well) was TWIST which offers cleaning products in fun names like “Dish Dumpling” and “Sponge Blossoms”. TWIST is natural and eco-friendly household cleaning tools made with simple and smart designs. Some products, like the Sponge Cloth, offer a new way to approach kitchen and bathroom cleaning. Others, like the Loofah Sponge, are simply a more eco-conscious alternative to their traditional competitors.
I recently picked up a 2 pack of their Loofah Sponges and Bamboo Cloths – I can’t wait to try them out and compare to other not so eco-friendly alternatives that we’re all used to. (well, ok, I can totally wait to clean…)
Here’s a twist. To encourage reusing and recycling, many of TWIST packages can be converted
into bird feeders and mobiles by following the instructions on the inside of the package!
