Going Green: Making the swap to Environmentally Friendly Products

Posted on December 20 2022

Making changes towards an environmentally conscious lifestyle can seem like a mammoth task. That’s why baby steps are important. Tiny movements in the right direction lead to long-term change and growth. 

Perhaps you’re looking to revamp your entire lifestyle: your diet, clothes, car, and home. But let’s start with something achievable: your cleaning supplies. An important first step that will leave a large impact on your family is choosing eco-cleaning products. 


What Are Green Cleaning Products?

Green cleaning products are made with natural ingredients like vegetables, seeds and essential oils. These products won’t leave behind any harmful chemicals, so you can be sure that your family is safe from harmful toxins.


Why is it safer to use environmentally friendly cleaning products? 

Green cleaning products are made with natural ingredients that are gentle on your skin and won’t cause any irritation. They’re also effective at cleaning surfaces without leaving behind any harmful chemicals.

Traditional cleaning products are made with harsh chemicals that can be irritating to your skin and respiratory system. In some cases, these chemicals can be toxic. When you use organic cleaning products like this eco-laundry tablet, you can avoid all of these health risks.


Another great reason to use eco-cleaning products is that they’re better for the environment. Traditional cleaning products often contain harmful chemicals that can pollute the air and water around you. When you use eco-friendly products, you can help reduce this pollution and make a positive impact on the environment.


Now that you know a little bit more about green products, let’s get going on how to start making the switch! 


Bathroom Cleaners 

Traditional bathroom cleaners often contain harmful chemicals like ammonia and bleach. Green bathroom cleaners, on the other hand, are made with natural ingredients that are easy on your skin and won't cause any health problems.


Eco-friendly bathroom tablets are made with 94.2% biodegradable ingredients that won't pollute the environment. Regular bathroom cleaners can be harsh on surfaces like countertops, bathtubs, and toilets. Green bathroom cleaners are just as effective at cleaning but won't damage surfaces.


Floor Cleaners 

Many traditional floor cleaners have a strong chemical smell that can be overpowering. Green bathroom cleaners usually have a pleasant scent because they're made with natural ingredients. Not only will your floor smell great after using a green cleaner, but you'll also enjoy the aromatherapy benefits of the essential oils used in them.  


You might think that because green cleaners are made from natural ingredients, they must be less effective than their chemical-based counterparts. However, this is not the case! Green floor cleaners are just as effective at cleaning your floors and removing dirt and grime. In fact, our green cleaners potentially work better than chemical-based cleaners!


Kitchen Degreasers 

A kitchen degreaser is a product that is used to remove grease, oil, and other forms of dirt from surfaces. They are often used in commercial kitchens to clean 

stovetops, ovens, fryers, and equipment. Degreasers are also commonly used in households to clean greasy messes from countertops and floors.


A great way to replace your chemical-filled kitchen degreaser is to try Australia's only eco-certified degreaser tablet. Perfect for stubborn grill and stove top stains in the kitchen. Just dilute the tablet in water in one of our reusable PET containers and spray away! This cleaner ensures that you can get rid of the kitchen muck with ease, all while being great for the environment.



Since COVID, sanitisers have been one of the most used products by businesses and individuals alike. We are constantly exposed to these products to ensure that we can be germ free, whether it’s at the supermarket, hospital or restroom. 


Swap out your chemical heavy sanitisers for the natural, skin-safe green sanitiser from eco-cleaning. Biodegradable, effective and most importantly, safe for the environment and you!
