I just found Natural Value kitchen sponges for about a dollar. They are made with 50% post-consumer recycled materials and really look and act like any other non-recycled sponge.
For laundry, I like Seventh Generation products. Their "Delicate Care" detergent works just as well as Woolite, but it's so much better for the environment!This laundry detergent powder is very light, yet as effective as any other detergent I've ever tried. As I was seraching for pictures of their products, I found this interesting tidbit: Sounds good to me!
For the bathroom, I like Mrs. Meyer's Surface Scrub because it works so well and it smells SO good (I've only tried geranium, but I know there's also basil and lemon verbena scents). I've also tried the geranium toilet bowl cleaner, which works really well. Seventh Generation Emerald Cypress and Fir Toilet Bowl Cleaner also works well. There are a bunch of economical and eco-friendly cleaning products out there that are not only better for the environment, but better for your health!
