Three Easy Ways To Make Cleaning More Eco-Friendly

In the UK alone, we consume over 500 million single use plastic bottles for cleaning purposes only. This figure is staggering, and as society has adapted to improve it, so has the cleaning industry.

There are a number of ways and products that can make your cleaning more eco-friendly. Sustainable cleaning products have started to become fairly mainstream; we are now able to get almost any product in a sustainable, environmentally friendly form, enabling us to be more conscious of our surroundings.  

So let’s delve into the world of sustainable cleaning products and look at some solutions that don’t cost the earth, in both senses of the phrase. 

Plastic Free Packaging –

In recent years, there has been huge progress in making the packaging for a number of products plastic free. As a result of this, brands are making packaging that is biodegradable, which means that it will decompose naturally and not pollute the environment.

So many well known companies have now begun to make the switch from plastic to plastic free, in an effort to reduce their carbon footprint. This includes leading brands such as Kleenex and Papernet. But as well as these current household names, new brands have emerged that exclusively sell plastic free products. A great example of this is the Panda Soft range of sustainable, plastic free products. Brands such as this aim to provide high quality cleaning solutions that don’t come at the expense of the environment.

Bamboo products –

The emergence of bamboo products is one of the fastest growing markets within sustainable cleaning. Originating from Asia and South America, bamboo products now have a role in the manufacturing of a wide range of cleaning solutions. 

The crop is extremely environmentally friendly due its unmatched renewability. It grows so quickly that it can grow a metre in just a day. This makes it a very sustainable material for the production of cleaning products. As well as this, the product does not require fertiliser and chemicals unlike cotton plants. It actually regenerates from its own roots, with very little maintenance.  

Because of this, the crop is the optimum material for sustainable cleaning products, made evident by solutions such as the bamboo soft toilet rolls. The line has become popular due to the product’s quality not being compromised by its sustainability. 

At Galleon Supplies, we are proud to stock sustainable brands. The Panda Soft range can be shopped here, for a great price. 

Reusable cleaning tools –

By using reusable cleaning tools, you are eliminating the use of single use paper towels and other equipment of the same kind. Tools like microfiber cloths and reusable cleaning pads are the best way to keep your kitchen clean, nice and green.

Microfiber cloths also are a great way of keeping your environment germ free also, and they are very easy to wash. You are still getting a great quality clean, it’s just better for the environment this way. This makes them a great reusable cleaning solution for your home.
