We have become a disposable society. I could probably write a whole post on this topic, and probably will someday. But for now, just think about the cleaning products you may be using that are disposable in some manner. By reverting to many of the tools mentioned these past two weeks; microfiber cloths, standard mops or washable mop heads, a re-usable toilet brush (there was a day when this was the only kind!) and rags to clean, you can save so much from the landfill. I know that a small duster refill doesn't seem like much, but multiply that all of the times you clean, and everyone else cleans, and it really adds up.
If this isn't the most convincing argument, consider the money you will save! I haven't bought cleaning products other than vinegar and baking soda in YEARS and that means a whole lot more green in my wallet.
If you feel up to it, I would love if you readers could calculate all you spend each month on cleaning products other than those mentioned this week-your more toxic or disposable products. It would be fascinating to see what each of us could save by switching and to see what people are spending on their toxic stuff around the world.
And thanks for spending Spring cleaning week(s) with me!
