Everyone should want to lead a more environmentally friendly lifestyle. Even just little things can have such a positive (and huge) impact on our world.
Isn’t that something you want to be a part of?
Here are some tips to inspire you to lead a more green lifestyle at home (and hopefully everywhere!).
Skip the Paper Towels
Yes, while convenient paper towels are super wasteful. Instead, try to use more rags, bamboo towels & cleaning cloths.
NatureZway All-Purpose Cleaning Cloths
NatureZway All-Purpose Cleaning Cloths are made from rayon which is bamboo-based (a renewable and sustainable source). Not only are these cleaning cloths super absorbent, but they can also be washed and reused, unlike traditional paper towels.
And, don’t worry about these guys scratching anything — the material is very soft, non-scratch, and safe for any surface.
Quitting paper towels cold turkey is hard. Instead, ease into it with NatureZway Bamboo Perforated Towels. While these bamboo towels give you the look and feel for traditional paper towels they are far superior.
Also, being made from rayon (so stronger than normal paper towels), they are just as absorbent, soft, and WASHABLE as the NatureZway All-Purpose Cleaning Cloths. That’s right—these babies are washable and reusable.
Each bamboo sheet can be rinsed out and used 100 times or more!
Just imagine the money you could save just by using one of these rolls. A 25 sheet roll of bamboo towels could replace so many traditional paper towels.
Can you see it?
Of course, this depends on what you are cleaning, but still, you’d be saving money, trees, and water just by switching to bamboo.
Just remember these are not flushable. Wash and reuse, guys!
And, if you really want to be more eco-friendly, but keep it cheap, you can always cut up rags. Instead, of donating old clothes, cut them up, and start cleaning away.
Swap the Toilet Paper
On average, most people use about 11 rolls of toilet paper per month. However, if you have 4 people living in your house that number goes up to 44 rolls. That’s a lot!
Just imagine the waste.
Let’s face it, we all need toilet paper and we don’t want to reuse it.
So what can we do?
For starters, we can use NatureZway Bamboo Bath Tissue. Since this toilet paper is made from bamboo and zero recycled materials, it has many advantages.
Bamboo is a renewable resource that uses less water, less land, and no pesticides to grow. By using it, you’ll be saving trees!
Plus it’s soft, a strong 2-ply, and very absorbent (all while being septic safe and 100% BPA free too).
Buy Products Made from Renewable and Sustainable Resources
While a lot of cleaning utensils perform well, they themselves weren’t made in the best of ways.
The NatureZway Bamboo Vegetable Brush is made from renewable and sustainable resources, but what does that mean?
It means that over time (and for the seeable future) this resource will naturally replenish itself. It will not run out and often has a lower environmental impact as well.
Not to mention, this vegetable brush has natural fiber bristles made of Tampico. Making it absorb water way better than plastic bristles which is great for your cleaning.
Plus it’s ergonomic too!
Use Biodegradable Products
In general, biodegradable products help reduce our world’s overall waste output and often are made from renewable resources.
Products like the NatureZway Sponge are made from plant-based fibers and bamboo making them 100% biodegradable. You can throw these babies in the compost pile and have no fear.
This high-quality sponge is great for cleaning any surface, absorbs great, and doesn’t smell!
