The Honest Company Conscious Cleaning Collection
This year The Honest Company introduced their Conscious Cleaning Collection, which will keep your home sparkling clean and help cut down on plastic usage and your carbon footprint. The collection’s main selling point is their reusable bottles that you fill up with their pods that each have a different function. From a multi-surface concentrated cleaner refill to a glass concentrated cleaner refill to a bathroom concentrated cleaner refill, simply drop the pod into the bottle, fill with water, shake and spray.
Other good to knows:
- All products are made without parabens, phthalates, synthetic fragrances, bleach, ammonia and chlorine
- The collection is made with naturally derived ingredients & delivered in 100% post-consumer recycled shipping cartons.
With L’AVANT Collective, you can now have effective cleaning solutions that you’ll actually be proud to display on the counter. Their line, whose packaging and design are downright dreamy, is sustainable (they have refillable and glass options) and plant-based (they tell us that their dish soap is the first plant-based soap to beat the performance of a conventional soap in third party testing). Choose from dish soap, multi-purpose cleaner, hand soap, biodegradable wipes and bundles. They also just added on a subscription service so you can set it and forget it.

If you consult EWG before making purchases, you’ll love Healthynest. Their cleaning and laundry systems are both EWG-verified. Developed and founded by Shazi Visram, who previously founded Happy Family Organics, Healthynest offers effective cleaning solutions that also help protect baby. Their cleaning system is a concentrate and with each 34 oz. bottle you can make up to 17 bottles of hand soap, 11 bottles of baby dish soap or 34 bottles of surface spray, which saves 80 plastic bottles per year (it comes with a reusable stainless steel container). Healthynest’s laundry system also comes in a 34 oz. bottle, which makes 170 loads of laundry (you simply pump once directly into your washer). Both are free of toxins and harsh chemicals typically found in common household products and detergent. Bonus: Healthynest also offers diapers, wipes and a skincare line, all EWG-approved and healthy and effective for your littlest littles.

The brand just released reusable glass bottles to help reduce environmental impact even further.
