Small Changes for a More Sustainable Home

Earth Week is a reminder for us all that there is no planet B! We’re sharing how to celebrate year-round with small changes you can make in every space to work toward a more sustainable home.


 

Tip 1: Reduce plastic waste with refillable, plant-powered cleaning products that really work!

We love The Bare Home's array of biodegradable, eco-friendly cleaners and natural soaps that are safe for you, your home, and the earth. These made-in-Canada products offer convenience for your kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room that you can feel good about, with glass packaging and at-home refill boxes to reduce disposable waste.





Tip 2: Eliminate single-use sponges and paper towels from your kitchen routine

We love these functional yet stylish sponge cloths from Canadian brand, TEN & CO. The eco-friendly, antibacterial cloths replace the use of up to 17 rolls of paper towel. The best part? The cellulose-cotton composition is 100% biodegradable and can be thrown away with compostable waste. Grab a coordinating tea towel for a matching set!





Tip 3: Find a low-waste grocery store near you and add functional style to your kitchen with refillable, reusable food storage containers.

Our canisters made from recycled glass and reclaimed wood walk the line between sustainability and style. They're perfect for storing grains, baking ingredients, sweets, snacks, and more. The wooden lids are coated in a 100% plant-based, food-safe wax finish.





Tip 4: Choose a sustainable foundation and opt for P.E.T. rugs indoors and out!

P.E.T. is an eco-friendly polyester fibre made from recycled plastic bottles. Our wide selection of P.E.T. rugs is at the top of our list for durability, washability, and family-friendly living. Check out how to care for your P.E.T. rug to enjoy it for years to come.






Tip 5: Make the switch to LED lighting throughout your home


This one's from Sacha! LED bulbs use at least 75% less energy and last up to 25 times longer than incandescent lighting. Browse our selection of LED-ready light fixtures and learn more about bulb selection in our free guide.
