We often don’t take the time to think about where our products come from and the impact they have on our planet. Things like everyday kitchen gadgets, cleaning supplies, and health care tools all have eco-friendly alternatives that can help reduce or eliminate waste in your daily life.
Eco-Friendly Alternatives for Your Home

I have been thinking more about reusable and more eco-friendly products for in our home. I want to share the things that we have been using, and the ways that we have been saving money by being more eco-friendly.
In the Kitchen
These are things we do, with the exception of the coffee filters. I would love to try the reusable coffee filters but at least here they are compostable.
- Silicone Muffin Liners – my favorite thing to bake muffins and cupcakes in
- Silicone baking mats
- K-cup Filter
- Tea Infuser – all we use here
- Coffee Filter
I have been using dryer balls for too many years to count. I got my first set of wool dryer balls as a giveaway that I won if my memory is correct.
I love my make up remover pads. I crocheted mine a few years ago, and I always feel like my make up actually came off compared to commercial make-up remover clothes.
I used and loved these with my last two babies. Fluffy (cloth diaper) bums are just so cute, plus there are as many awesome prints.
Be Eco-Friendly On the Go
I use all of these. I love my multiple coffee mugs. I love the coffee cozies that I have crocheted as well though I don’t use them that often anymore.
My rule when grocery shopping is that if I forgot my bags in the vehicle then we carry them out. I am good at returning my bags to the truck so 90% of the time I have bags.
