10 Eco-Friendly Products to Use in 2022
The trend of eco-friendly products is on the rise. More people are now conscientious about how their actions could harm the environment around them are making the switch to products made from sustainable materials using eco-friendly practices.
Using eco-friendly products makes your home more environmentally friendly and reduces your carbon footprint.
Here are 10 eco-friendly products you can start to use in 2022:
1. Eco-Friendly Clothing
The increase in popularity of eco-friendly clothing has prompted many fashion brands to become more socially responsible by adding natural or organic pieces to their range.
Eco-friendly clothing is made using recycled materials, which means that it doesn’t release harmful chemicals into the environment.
2. Green Cleaners
The most common ingredients in commercial cleaners are ammonia and bleach. These ingredients have a very strong smell and can be toxic to humans.
People who are allergic to the chemicals found in household cleaners experience coughing, throat irritation, chest tightness, sneezing and sinus problems when exposed to them.
Green cleaning products such as vinegar, lemon juice and baking soda are inexpensive, easily available and are an eco-friendly alternative to cleaners made using toxic chemicals.
3. Biodegradable trash bags
Biodegradable trash bags are made to degrade faster than normal trash bags. There are a variety of different biodegradable materials that can be used to produce these types of trash bags, including corn-starch, cellulose fibres and polylactic acid.
Biodegradable trash bags are sturdy, leak-proof, decompose quickly in landfills and can be recycled as compost or soil conditioner.
4. Low-Flow Shower Fixtures
A low-flow shower fixture reduces water flow from the main shower head.
These systems use less water than your standard high-flow fixture, which is environmentally friendly and will save you money on your monthly bill. In addition, these systems typically offer more water pressure than other types of shower heads, so they can be a good option for anyone who has trouble reaching their desired level of pressure when they turn on the tap.
5. Recycled Toilet Paper
Several countries have been recycling their waste for decades and recycled toilet paper is another way to help conserve natural resources and reduce the amount of waste in landfills.
Recycling toilet paper reduces the need for virgin materials and makes a big difference in reducing its greenhouse gas emissions.
6. Reusable Water Bottles
Reusable water bottles made from metal, glass, and other materials are a popular choice for environmentally conscious people.
There are many reasons why reusable water bottles have become popular in the last few years. They help you reduce plastic usage, cut down on paper waste and save money on bottled water.
They can potentially protect the environment in a significant way by decreasing the amount of garbage generated.
Always keep your drinking water clean between uses by washing and drying it thoroughly.
7. Edible Crockery and Cutlery
A recent innovation that is gaining popularity, edible crockery and cutlery are more sustainable than regular crockery, being made from natural, biodegradable materials.
As the name suggests, edible crockery and cutlery can be eaten at the end of the meal. Since there is no washing required, it is even more environmentally friendly.
An important food safety benefit is the reduction of cross-contamination as utensils are not shared and all food waste is left on the plate.
8. Plastic-Free Meal Containers
Recent trends in environmentally conscious living have made reusable, non-plastic meal prep containers increasingly popular.
Reusable, non-plastic meal prep containers are a great investment. You can stop using plastic Zip lock bags and Tupperware containers to store your food. They are BPA and phthalate free which means they will not leach any toxins into your food or drinks.
They are microwaveable, dishwasher safe, freezer safe and come in an array of colours which make them eye-catching.
9. Organic Cotton Buds
One of the most sanitary and environmentally friendly products available for cleaning ears, organic cotton buds are made from 100% organic material.
Organic cotton is hypoallergenic, which means that it will not cause any skin irritation. In addition, you won't find any residues from pesticides or fertilisers on these cotton buds, which makes them a great option to chemical-free alternatives for cleaning your ears.
10. Biodegradable Dishwasher Tablets
To eliminate the possibility of plastic waste, many companies are now looking for ways to produce more biodegradable products.
One way they accomplished this is by creating disposable dishwasher tablets that are made from plant-based materials. For instance, Tirtyl’s biodegradable dishwasher tablets are formulated from plants & minerals, ultra-concentrated and use a plant-based binder.
Free from food dyes and fillers, they effectively clean dishes at temperatures beginning from 45°C and come in a handy space-saving container.
