Earth Day is something that should be celebrated every day. Every day we should make a conscious decision to do better for the environment and our beloved Mother Earth and it’s simple to start. I know it can be overwhelming and I truly recommend starting small and growing. Just like a seed, let me plant a seed in you with some suggestions on how to reduce, reuse and recycle and I hope through social media you can show me how you grow in making greener decisions..@kliinorganic is a functional compact, machine-washable cleaning cloth that is, soft, super absorbent and compostable. It is the perfect alternative to traditional paper towels. Click To Tweet
First off let’s start with paper towel use. This can be your first way to start in making a change. I want to talk to you about KLIIN. A reusable paper towel company hailing from Montreal, Quebec. As a mother of 3, I am constantly wiping down and cleaning up messes. Back in the day, before I started to reuse with KLIIN, I would go through a roll of paper towel in about 2 days. From wiping water around the sink to spot cleans on the floor to wiping messy fingers and grease from the stove it was adding up fast. Too fast.
Fact: One KLIIN replaces the equivalent of 17 rolls of paper towels.
KLIIN is multi-use, it’s made from natural fibres and can be washed up to 300 times. It also holds up to 15 times its weight with water. It feels strong, I like how it feels texture wise as it cleans very well and there’s no odour, even after a week. I hand wash them, but you can put them in the wash. I’m just starting to get my balcony ready as the weather warms up and I’ve been using my KLIIN cloths religiously in keeping everything clean and tidy and wiping down my windows(see my Instagram). With cottage and BBQ season coming up, if you are looking for a great hostess gift, you have to check out KLIIN’s selection of reusable paper towels. It’s seriously cute and you can win a gift set too!
So how else can we start to be greener? Here are some more suggestions:
* No more Junk Mail
* Say “NO!” to bottled water
* Reduce your waste(use KLIIN)
* Green-up your transportation
* Support small, local businesses
* Reduce the chemical cleaners you use and make your own. (9 parts water, 1 part vinegar and add 3 drops of Tea Tree or Lavender essential oils)
* Switch out your light bulbs for energy efficient ones
* Plant an herb garden
* Bring your own grocery bags
I’d love to hear what you do to help live a greener lifestyle at home. Comment below telling us how and head to KLIIN and tell us your favourite print for your KLIIN towels and you’ll be entered to win a prize pack. Contest ends
