Celebrating Earth Day 2024 With Sustainable Home Cleaning Tips

It's Earth Day! This year, we celebrate Earth Day with its theme “Planet Vs Plastics”. With more than 70 million cleaning sprays (140million plastic pieces) being used in the UK households every year, it's time to roll up our sleeves and get down to the business of sustainable household and cleaning habits. Let's explore practical ways to keep your home clean and tidy without harming the environment, with the help of Miniml's eco-friendly cleaning products.

1. Harness the Power of Natural Ingredients:

Nature provides some of the best solutions for cleaning. Opt for products made with natural ingredients, like Miniml's range of eco-friendly cleaners. From plant-based surfactants to natural essential oils, these gentle yet effective ingredients ensure a thorough clean without the use of harsh chemicals.

2. Reduce Waste with Refillable Packaging:

Miniml's refillable packaging allows you to minimise plastic waste by reusing your bottles and refilling them with our range of cleaning products. Our pioneering Closed Loop System allows you to refill your household products by either visiting a local refill shop or purchasing refill options online! What’s the best option for you? 🤔

By visiting your local refill store you not only save on the delivery costs and emissions, but also the costs of packaging - simply fill up as much or as little product as you need in your forever-bottle. To find your local Miniml stockist, visit our online store locator.

If you don’t have a refill shop nearby, you can get your refills delivered straight to your door by shopping online! Shop on demand or subscribe to our refill options to get your top-up just before you run out of product! Once the refill packaging is empty, send it back to us for free to be cleaned and reused again.

Together, last year alone we saved 273 tonnes of plastic from ending up in landfill! 🤯Whichever refilling option you choose, rest assured it plays a huge part in reducing plastic pollution. 

3. Practice Mindful Cleaning:


Be mindful of the resources you use when cleaning your home. Turn off lights and appliances when not in use, and opt for energy-efficient cleaning methods. For example, Miniml's concentrated formulas require less water and packaging, making them an eco-conscious choice for mindful cleaning routines.

4. DIY Cleaning Solutions:

Create your own DIY cleaners using simple ingredients like white vinegar, soda bicarbonate, and lemon juice. These natural alternatives are not only effective but also safe for the environment. Pair them with Miniml's natural cleaning range for added cleaning power with minimal environmental impact.

5. Opt for Multi-Purpose Products:

Streamline your cleaning routine by choosing multi-purpose cleaning products. Miniml offers versatile solutions like our multisurface cleaner, which can tackle everything from countertops to floors and bathrooms. By reducing the number of products you use, you can minimise waste and simplify your cleaning routine.

6. Sustainable Laundry Practices:


Extend your eco-friendly cleaning practices to your laundry routine. Use cold water whenever possible to save energy, and opt for eco-friendly laundry detergents like Miniml's non-bio formula. Their gentle yet effective detergent ensures a clean wash without harming the environment or your clothes.

Pro Tip: Did you know that fabric stains are best treated in cold water? Here’s an additional motivation to use colder water temperatures for your weekly laundry chores! Read our previous blog post on removing fabric stains with natural cleaning solutions. 🙂

7. Support Eco-Conscious Brands:

Choose to support brands that prioritise sustainability and environmental responsibility. For example, Miniml's commitment to using natural, biodegradable ingredients and minimising plastic waste makes us a leading and fastest-growing zero-waste brand! By choosing Miniml, you're not just cleaning your home – you're supporting a cleaner, greener planet. 🌍

Celebrating Earth Day Every Day 

As we celebrate Earth Day 2024, let's remember that every action we take – no matter how small – has the power to make a difference. By embracing sustainable cleaning practices and choosing eco-friendly products, we can create a cleaner, healthier environment for all. 🙌
