Disclaimer: We received products in exchange for inclusion in this post! These are all amazing earth friendly brands we truly love and as always, if I don’t love it, I don’t share it!
There is no doubt that global warming is a thing and we are creating some amazing earth friendly products. Our weather over the last few years has been wild and wacky all over the world! We’re seeing our lands diminish and our animals suffering due to our human footprint!
We’ve only just begun seeing a rise in earth friendly products that are making our world place and there is still so much we can be doing! After seeing the Douglas Copeland Exhibit at The Vancouver Aquarium last year, this has become a very important conversation in our home. “What else can we do mama?”
Hearing my youngest at the age of 2 ask me “where is the food waste bucket,” was a very proud mama moment! We recycle properly, we use reusable shopping bags and we reuse everything we possibly can but can we do better? Absolutely!
It’s not hard to be earth friendly, it’s not too inconvenient and all it takes is small adjustments to start making a difference. This next generation that we are currently raising deserve better and it starts with us teaching them. Just as my grandparents wanted a better life for their kids and grandkids, so do we!
Not only on earth day but every day thereafter, here are 5 of my favourite earth friendly products that are making the world a better place!
- Kliin– A reusable towel that is a cross between conventional paper towels and washcloths, made of 100% natural fibres.
Purchasing paper towel is one of the most frustrating purchases I make. Paper Towel is simply not necessary and not at all an earth friendly product. Replace your sponges and dishrags with this super cute heavy-duty hybrid.
One Kliin replaces the equivalent of 17 rolls of paper towels and absorbs up to 15 times its weight in water. To disinfect, just put it in the dishwasher or toss it into a load of laundry. It can be washed up to 300 times before making its way into the composter, where it reverts to organic matter within 28 days.
These earth friendly products are gentle enough to use as a facecloth for children and tough enough to wash the car, or spruce up outdoor furniture.
- BK Naturals – Eco Friendly Toxin free Home Care and cleaning products!
Loralei the owner of BK Naturals is someone that I have admired for a very long time and a very dear friend She then went on to become one of my favourite superheroes; fighting germs and dirt with her handmade cleaning products and saving lives one toxic free cleaning product at a time!
This journey for BK Naturals started with the cancer diagnosis of both parents, so my friend Loralei dove into this journey with guns blazing! Determined to put an end to the nasty chemicals.
Loralei created this army of amazing eco-friendly cleaning products. BK Naturals is everything from laundry soap, dish soap, our favourite all-purpose cleaner and even a stain remover stick. These products truly work and make the world a better place!
- Abeego – Reusable Beeswax Wraps
I was first introduced to Abeego wraps when I received a sample in a swag bag for the grand opening of the new location for The Local Space in Langley. Next to purchasing paper towel, the next most frustrating purchases are saran wrap and reseal able plastic bags. Again those are products that are completely pointless and it’s literally throwing money away!
These reusable beeswax wraps are all natural, zero waste, and made to last! With having Ava in school, we saw how much waste we can produce when we’re not eating at home so packing Ava’s lunch in these reusable beeswax wraps is crucial!
Ava packs her sandwiches and any other little crackers in the Abeego reusable Beeswax wraps and the best part, she always brings them home!
- Seeding Square – The Smartest gardening tool you’ll ever have
If I’ve said it once, I’ll say it twice; I am a huge fan of Dragons’ Den and this amazing product recently received a deal from Lane Merrifield! This gardening tool helps to plan out your garden whether you have a large plot in your backyard or even a smaller box garden on your patio. With perfect spacing for optimal growth ensuring that no space is wasted, ensuring the highest yield possible. The best part, it makes spotting the weeds 1000x easier so that you’re spending more time making memories with the kids and less time pulling those annoying weeds that can stifle your growth!
The colored coded squares make it easy for kids of all ages to get involved and in my opinion, the younger the better! Simply press the square down into the soil, poke the holes and then plant the seeds! Before you know it you’ll be harvesting a beautiful crop of fresh veggies grown right in your backyard!
- gogoBags – Reusable bags
I know I’m not alone here with purchasing produce and having it go bad within days of coming home. Half the battle is obtaining quality fresh produce and the other half is keeping it from going bad right away! Thanks to gogoBags, another company making earth friendly products, the fruits and veggies you buy are now kept fresh and stored properly! This allows you to get the longest possible shelf life out of your veggies, leaving your money right where it needs to be (in your wallet).
Even better yet, grow your own veggies using the seeding square and really enjoy that hard work by keeping them fresher longer! But why are gogoBags so amazing? Not only are they easy to use, but also they are made locally right here in Canada and they come with a lifetime warranty! gogoBags are lined with 100% cotton so your food is only touching cotton and nothing else and can always breathe.
This is literally just the tip of the iceberg with earth friendly products. I want to help you get started on your earth friendly journey and so we’re giving away products from all of the companies involved in this post!
