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!

  1. 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.

  1. 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!

  1. 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!

  1. 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!

  1. 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.

  1. I love all the products you are featuring! I have been trying to be more mindful of what I consume and waste produced. I have started to carry my reusable bags in my purse and now I never forget them!!

  2. I’ve seen the Abeego wraps at the Local Space in Langley and have wanted to try them! I use shampoo soap to avoid plastic packaging.

  3. Love to learn about new ways to help the environment and reduce our carbon footprint. Fantastic discussion to have in the classroom with students especially at this time of year when we spend a week trying to really make a difference at our school.

  4. I just recently started using the wax wraps and I love them so much! Get asked about them every time someone sees them.

  5. We try to always be aware of what we are consuming and how. We use reusables whenever possible and buy products with more environmentally friendly packaging!

  6. I’ve seen gogobags and abeego before. They’re great! Kliin also looks like an amazing product! I love that it’s compostable.

  7. we try to leave the car at home and cycle whenever it is only a small item pick up trip or a visit to somewhere that is doable.

  8. I’ve heard some amazing things about those Gogobags, but haven’t had a chance to use them myself yet. We use reusable bags for all sorts of other things — grocery shopping and such — but we should really do that with our produce too.

  9. I have made many changes in the kitchen such as recycle all food containers, compost all food waste, no more plastic wrap, reusable coffee filter.

  10. I recently got a soda stream so that I no longer need to buy bottles or cans of pop. We use metal straws. We recycle. We are also trying to consume less – my daughter wanted some tshirts now that the weather is nicer. Instead of buying new, I took her long sleeves that still fit and cut and sewed the sleeves. Voila. Tshirts.

  11. We are always looking for ways to be more earth friendly. We reduce, reuse and recycle and use our metal straws instead of plastic. We also use reusable feminine pads and reusable containers instead of plastic wrap.

  12. Switching to more simple basic home cleaning solutions. Incorporating things like vinegar and alcohol and essential oils instead of harsh synthetic chemicals.

  13. I bring my own reusable bags when I go grocery shopping, we refill our aluminum water bottles, and we switching to cleaning with chemicals that aren’t harsh. I LOVE the Thieves cleaner! 🙌🏼😍

  14. I like to think of myself as the queen of green! LOL
    the most important thing I do is teach my students to respect our earth and what that looks like.

  15. We use reusable water bottles, shopping bags, and cleaning cloths. We recycle everything that we can. We try to walk instead of drive when possible. My kids have mostly hand me downs from family, friends and each other so that we are not buying new baby gear, toys, books and clothes – we try to reuse as much as possible and then still pass stuff along once we are finished with it too.
