When we are talking about household products,
natural alternatives and eco-friendly items are just beginning to gain popularity. For a long time, majority of people didn’t realize the harm of chemicals we are using on a daily basis.
Not only because all chemicals are dangerous if swallowed, touched or inhaled, but also, because many of them can potentially get into our waterways and become extremely dangerous to the environment.
In 2020, you can live sustainably and be eco-friendly just by choosing the right products that are available online. At Kiwi Eco Box, we are always trying to find those products and to include them inside new monthly box to help our customers to live green.
Here are favorite products for every household:
1. Kitchen sponges
The best kitchen sponge alternative is Loofah sponge, which actually is a vegetable in the gourd family, and It’s know from antic Egypt time. Loofah sponges are great for cleaning almost everything, anything that needs scrubbed but can't withstand abrasive steel wool.
2. Natural bristle brushes
If you’re already living zero-waste, but don’t have bristle brush yet, we strongly recommend you to try it. It works perfect for cleaning bottles and narrow neck-jars.
3. Homemade dish soap
You can find lots of recipes online for any kind of dish soap online, as well as get it through various websites. For people accustomed to the super soapy dyed and scented commercial stuff—mighty be a challenging at the beginning, but think about the environment effect.
4. Homemade Window cleaner
Use a rag to clean your windows with vinegar and water and dry with crumpled newspaper. Works better than any other chemical liquid, but has the same effect and will leave your windows crystal clear.
5. Wax wraps
Reusable Bee Wrap Wax Paper is a product worth trying. It’s a great alternative to help protect your vegetables, fruits, cheeses, and snacks, and avoid using plastic snack bags. Crafted with bee’s wax, Jojoba oil, natural tree resin, and 100% organic cotton, wraps are safe and easy to clean and reuse over and over.
