Today’s Sustainable Action: Reusable Cleaning Supplies!
This tip can be used for all sorts of supplies, but today we will be specifically focusing on cleaning supplies. Instead of buying a new bottle of soap or window cleaner every time you run out, you could buy a reusable and sustainable dispenser.
This means that you will simply refill it from a bigger container when you run out. This sustainable and cost effective method can be used for hand soap, window cleaner, and other cleaning supplies.
Also, for things like body wash you can use bar soap that doesn’t use any plastic packaging.. This is a good way to save money and use fewer plastic containers (made from fossil fuels) that harm the environment.
Thank you for reading this week’s tip!
Bar soap is generally considered the most sustainable soap option, with 10 times less of an environmental impact than liquid soap.
It’s the next generation that will deal with the effects of Climate Change on the Earth so we are thrilled to introduce Maddy Brianas and her Tips! Maddy is an Annapolis teen who is passionate about protecting the environment. Last year she and her sister, Bella (and their parents), participated in our Have a Heart Do Your Part cleanup and then turned around and did a birthday fundraiser to benefit Annapolis Green!
