28 best reusable cleaning products that are better for the planet.

WRITTEN BY Grove Collaborative • 37 min read

What's so novel about reusable cleaning supplies? We've had reusable cleaning supplies forever. A mop bucket can be used for generations, and a good mop can last years—if not decades. The same is true for a broom and dustpan.


But we aren't only talking about the tools of tidiness—made of wood, metal, and durable plastics. When we talk about reusable cleaning supplies, we also mean those things that have traditionally been used once—maybe twice—and then discarded. If we could reuse a paper towel or a trash liner, that would be progress. That would also be a step in the right direction toward a cleaner, healthier planet

.

Lucky for us, these things exist today. There are actually paper towels that you can rinse out and reuse, over and over again. Reusable household and personal care items that used to only be available in single-use options aren't a thing we have to wait for anymore, like flying cars and hovering skateboards. They are here now, and ready to elevate your life to the next level.


Take a look at the best of reusable cleaning and household products Grove has to offer.

FAQs

What are sustainable cleaning products?

The word "sustainable" is tossed about with increasing frequency lately. We want our products and businesses to be sustainable, and with good reason. But how much do we really know about what makes a product sustainable?


Though institutions and companies have variations on what sustainability actually means, there are three main principles that are at the core of being a sustainable product.


  1. The product needs to be composed entirely of renewable resources that are harvested or utilized in a way that does not deplete that resource.
  2. The product can't do harm to the environment, especially once it is used up and discarded.
  3. The product can do no harm to people.

A sustainable cleaning product would have to fit these same standards.


Grove is conscientious about making sure the products we carry meet sustainability standards. Our goal is to benefit people and the environment, while doing our part to ensure that renewable resources remain available for generations to come.


What are the most environmentally friendly cleaning products?

”Eco-friendly”—that's the word of the day. There is an abundance of environmentally friendly cleaning products on the market. Whether you're looking for reusable cleaning gloves—which are environmentally friendly because you keep them out of landfills longer and use fewer over time, or bamboo paper towels—which are made of a highly renewable resource, biodegrade quickly, and cause no harm to the environment, cleaning products that are natural and good for the planet are easy to find and use these days, especially with B Corps who help you find those options, like us here at Grove.


If we're talking environmentally friendly cleaning agents, those made entirely out of natural ingredients are best for Mother Earth. If a cleaning solution contains vinegar, baking soda, or natural enzymes, it’s natural and highly effective.


If we're talking eco-friendly kitchen tools and consumables—like a broom or paper towels—seek out items that are made of natural materials (like wood or bamboo), and if they contain synthetic components at all, make sure those bits are recyclable.


Which is better: Grove or Blueland?

At Grove, we like to think we’re the best at what we do–which is to provide an online market where you can buy only the most sustainable, natural products available. But we’ll put aside our bias to give Blueland a fair shot.


In viewing many review sites, it's apparent that Grove and Blueland tend to make the top of the lists. Some users like Blueland better, others prefer Grove. It all comes down to a matter of personal preference. Those who prefer Blueland seem to enjoy the pre-labeled glass bottles they provide. Those who prefer Grove tend to notice our minimal, eco-friendly packaging and are impressed by the effectiveness of the cleaning products we carry.


One thing is evident, however—Grove and Blueland always seem to make the list of clean, natural products that are creating less waste and doing good for the Earth. So, whether Grove makes number 1 or number 2 on someone's list, we’re happy to spread sustainable goodness to all who seek it.


What is Grove Collaborative?

At Grove, we take the guesswork out of which products are good for you and your home. Every product meets strict standards for being nontoxic, effective, sustainable, and cruelty-free. Once you find products you love, we ship to your home on a flexible, monthly schedule.


If you're ready to make the transition to natural cleaning, beauty, and household products, shop Grove Collaborative's natural products for the eco-friendly tools to tackle the job.
