Spring is gradually settling in, and this very exciting time of year is ideal for a big cleaning at home! It is also a golden opportunity to rethink our cleaning methods so that they are better for the environment! That’s why we suggest 6 tips for an eco-friendly spring cleaning!
Ditch disposable towels
Whether scrubbing tenacious stains on surfaces or removing dust in the smallest corners of your home, choose reusable sponges and towels instead of disposable products! To do so, get the Confetti Mill X Ten and Co. sponge cloth that replaces the use of 17 rolls of paper towels, or our linen dishcloths made of natural linen fibres!

Dry your laundry outside

Redecorate the house with recycled items
The annual spring cleaning is also great a time to get rid of old decorations to refresh our environment! To embellish your home, opt for items made of recycled objects, such as our artworks made in collaboration with artist Magali Robidaire! Garlands, hanging art pieces and mobiles made of linen leftovers will certainly enhance your cozy nest in an eco-responsible way.
Change your home goods and choose linen
In addition to being resistant, breathable and antibacterial, linen is a natural fiber that softens over time and is highly durable! That’s why we love this eco-friendly fabric for the kitchen, the bedroom, the living room, clothes, and much more!
