One of the hardest things to do in the quest for a life in better balance with the needs of the planet is to find decent cleaning products.
Oh sure, there are plenty of eco-friendly items out there but many of them are super expensive.
Who wants to spend $30 on hand soap when the “bad version” is a couple of bucks in Walmart?
Well, that’s where Blueland comes in.
Blueland was co-founded by Sarah Paiji who says:
I founded Blueland with the belief that we shouldn’t have to sacrifice a clean home for a clean planet. Our mission is simple, make being eco easy with innovative products in reusable packaging that are convenient, effective and affordable. I hope you’ll join us as we clean up the planet!
It wasn’t all smooth sailing on their way to success in the increasingly competitive eco-friendly cleaning products market. For more on their challenges check out this article from Inc.
Reasonably Priced, Kind Cleaning Agents
Blueland’s mission is to develop products using ingredients that are meant to promote your health in harmony with the health of the planet.
These include cleaning sprays, powdered dish soap, and tablets for both laundry and dishwashers.
In addition to their eco-creds, they’re also cruelty-free as certified by Leaping Bunny and completely vegan, non-GMO and gluten-free.
That’s a fairly substantial list of credentials.
Sourcing That Makes Sense
None of their ingredients appear on the Prop 65 banned ingredients list and none of them are on the EWG unacceptable list either and, in fact, they stick to the EPA safer chemical ingredients list.
Of course, this doesn’t stop them from using fragrances because cleaning products are meant to smell nice but the fragrances, they use are low-allergen and completely non-toxic.
All the oils they use including coconut oil and palm oil are fully ethically sourced.
In fact, they require their suppliers to disclose all the materials they use, including trace amounts, in order to better understand their impact on the planet and in order to reduce that impact.
They never work with suppliers that cannot demonstrate their products haven’t been ethically produced.
All their products are refill based and you never need to throw away another plastic bottle again. All the Blueland eco-friendly cleaning products have been third party certified too.
