Eco-Friendly and Green Cleaning

At Abundance Organizing we are an eco-friendly company with a promise to use less than 25% plastic by 2025. We are committed to offering eco-friendly organizing solutions and products and to teaching our clients how to increase sustainability within their households, and enhance our own business practices with a mindful eye on prioritizing the planet. Using natural  cleaning products and teaching our clients to do the same is one way we can practically do this. Conventional cleaning products can be so very damaging.

Have you checked out the Think Dirty app or EWG website? They are great resources to review any of your cleaning products and to learn more about eco-friendly and green cleaning products.

If you find yourself using a majority of conventional cleaning products, making many changes to natural products can be overwhelming. We get it. But we DO challenge you to make at least one change to your cleaning products – and swap in a green product. Check out our Abundance Declutter Group on Facebook for more and to share your favorite eco-friendly and green cleaning product. We would also love to hear the green swap you plan to make.
