We cannot avoid cleaning, but you can avoid the waste.
One thing we all have to do from time to time is clean, be it a quick once over or a deep clean, it's something you can't avoid and if you don't have a cleaner then you have to do it yourself, which is fine!

Declutter and organise sustainably this spring
A happy home for many means an organised home. Knowing where everything is, in one place can make life feel a little less hectic, less overwhelming. Some people love clutter some people hate it. If you're looking to declutter here are some tips on how to do it the sustainable way.
Sustainable Storage - If you're looking for storage options, avoid buying plastic. Baskets, cloth bags, glass jars and containers are a great alternative and we think they actually look way more stylish.
Rehome and Upcycle - Instead of throwing out items you don't need why not donate them to someone who does. Ask a friend, find a local charity who support people in the community. Give items a new lease of life, a lick of paint, a repair or a good clean up. Whatever it is, do all you can to do throw them away.
Sustainable cleaning, doesn't have to cost you the Earth
Deep cleaning doesn't need to cost your the Earth, especially if you do it in a sustainable way. Less is more, if you can always opt for the refill options and do all you can to reduce your waste. Here's to a happy sustainable spring clean!
