Cleaning products play a significant role in our daily lives. Still, many come with a hefty environmental price tag, given that traditional cleaning products are often filled with harsh chemicals and release harmful greenhouse gases.
However, there is hope. Sustainable cleaning products solve these problems, as they’re made from natural ingredients, biodegradable and free from harsh chemicals. They are better for the environment and are also gentle on your surfaces and safe for you and your loved ones.
Making the switch to sustainable cleaning products is an easy step we can all take to protect our planet and ensure a better future for ourselves and generations to come. So let’s explore some of the best sustainable cleaning products on the market so that you can make an informed choice for a cleaner and greener home.
Sustainable Laundry Detergents
Keeping your laundry detergents sustainable is a great choice for those who want to reduce their carbon footprint with every load. Not only are they made from biodegradable ingredients, but they're also gentle on clothes and free from harsh chemicals that can irritate the skin. They come in recyclable packaging, so you can feel good about doing your part for the environment.
Our Laundry Starter Kit might be the perfect fit if you're looking for a subtle fragrance. This bundle includes two bottles of Bower's Laundry Liquid and Fabric Conditioner and two reusable PET laundry bottles for easy dispensing. You can rest easy knowing that both products are 100% naturally derived, free of SLS and parabens, and suitable for vegans.
Sustainable Bathroom Cleaners
Sustainable bathroom cleaning products are an excellent way to keep your bathroom sparkling clean while being kind to the environment. Natural ingredients that clean and disinfect without harsh chemicals make these products gentle on your surfaces and the planet. And with eco-friendly packaging options, you can reduce your plastic waste and help create a cleaner world.
Get started with our Bower Spring Cleaning Starter Kit, an all-in-one eco-friendly solution for cleaning your bathroom made from 100% naturally derived ingredients and free of toxic substances. The bundle includes powerful and natural cleaning refills, reusable glass trigger spray bottles and a pack of reusable eco-cleaning cloths, making your bathroom sparkle and smell wonderful while avoiding unnecessary plastic waste.
Sustainable All-Purpose Sanitiser Sprays

With our Bower Everything Home Starter Kit, you’ll be set to keep every corner of your home squeaky clean. The kit includes reusable glass dispensers, hand wash, washing up liquid, all-purpose sanitiser spray and toilet cleaner.
Sustainable Floor Cleaners
When cleaning your floors, keeping your cleaning products sustainable is truly the way to go. These products are made with natural ingredients safe for your surfaces and the environment so that you can clean with peace of mind. If you have toddlers or pets, it’s even more of a reason to opt for toxin-free solutions.
Take our Linseed Floor Cleaner Refill, a versatile cleaning solution suitable for vinyl, laminate, ceramic tiles and wood surfaces with natural ingredients and packaged in a refill pouch without any of the harsh chemicals you find in traditional floor cleaners like SLS and parabens.
Sustainable Limescale Removers
Say goodbye to limescale buildup. Made with natural ingredients that are gentle on surfaces but tough on buildup, sustainable limescale removers are an effective alternative to harsh chemical cleaners that might irritate your body.
You might initially think a natural cleaning product might not be strong enough for limescale, but we’ve noticed the opposite. Our Limescale Removers are natural and effective formulas that can remove limescale twice as effectively as Viakal on various surfaces, like taps, shower screens, sinks and tiles. It sure packs a punch despite having 100% natural ingredients, being toxin-free and vegan-friendly.
Sustainable Dishwasher Tablets
Sustainable dishwasher tablets are a great option for those who want to keep their dishes clean and green. Lots of traditional dishwasher tablets and liquids leave residual toxins and chemicals on your tableware, and the substances that are washed up through the cycle end up in sewage water, which can often leak into bodies of water and leave harmful contaminants to our planet’s ecosystems.
Opt out of this vicious cycle with our selection of dishwasher tablets and liquid refills, all made with top-grade natural ingredients that are effective at removing dirt and grime and free from harsh chemicals that can harm the planet.
Sustainable scourers are an eco-friendly alternative to traditional scouring pads, often made with synthetic materials that can harm the environment. Eco-friendly scourers are made with natural materials, such as plant fibres, coconut husks or even recycled materials that are biodegradable and compostable. Unlike synthetic scouring pads that can release microplastics into the water supply, sustainable scourers break down naturally over time, leaving behind no harmful residue.
If you’re considering alternatives, look at our Coconut Fibre Scourers and Recyclable Copper Scourers, which offer natural and durable options for all your household cleaning needs. Our Coconut Fibre Scourers are biodegradable, naturally antibacterial and free from toxic chemicals, while Seep’s Recyclable Copper Scourers are 100% recyclable, long-lasting and perfect for removing tough dirt.
The sustainable sponge is an ideal choice for those who want to clean their dishes and surfaces while being mindful of the environment. Unlike traditional synthetic sponges, sustainable sponges are made with natural materials such as cellulose, coconut fibres or loofah, which are renewable, biodegradable and compostable. These sponges are durable, absorbent and effective at removing dirt and grime, making them a great alternative to synthetic sponges that may contain harmful chemicals and microplastics.
We love our Compostable Eco Sponge and Seep’s Plastic Free Sponge With Loofah Scourer so much! Using natural cellulose and renewable sources, these long-lasting, 100% plastic-free and fully compostable options offer a sustainable and effective way to clean your home without harming the environment.
Reusable Eco-Cleaning Cloths
Unlike disposable cleaning products, reusable cloths can be washed and reused multiple times, saving you money and reducing the amount of waste you generate. They’re typically made from natural materials such as cotton or bamboo, which are biodegradable and won't contribute to the plastic waste filling our oceans and landfills.
Eager to go reusable? Our Reusable Eco Cleaning Cloths 4-pack is a sustainable alternative to disposable cleaning cloths. Made from biodegradable cellulose, these plastic-free cloths are long-lasting, compostable and effective at cleaning. Pair them with Bower's eco-friendly cleaning products for a greener, cleaner home.
By choosing sustainable brushes, you can significantly reduce your carbon footprint and contribute to a cleaner, healthier planet. These brushes are usually made with natural materials like bamboo, wood, coconut husk and other sustainable materials that are durable, biodegradable and compostable.
An excellent example would be our Bower Beechwood Dish Brush, made with eco-friendly beechwood and natural fibre bristles, making it an ideal sustainable alternative for your dishwashing needs. Our dish brush is 100% plastic-free and vegan, ensuring it's environmentally conscious and animal-friendly.
