Yesterday, was World Environmental Day. And at my house we also celebrated (okay maybe not “celebrated”) laundry day. Sometimes, keeping our planet clean doesn’t mesh well with keeping our immediate home and our clothing clean. There are so many products out there that are harmful to our environment, not to mention the health effects such as skin, eye and throat irritation, indoor pollution and carcinogenicity.

Recently, I made the switch to @mrsmeyerscleanday cleaning products. At first, it was just the hand soaps, which I kept seeing and lovely smelling at all my favorite restaurants and hotels. Then, I bought the dish liquid. And now I’m all about their laundry detergent, which (despite what many told me was not possible without harsh chemicals) keeps my kids clothing dirt-free and smelling darling.

The secret is a darling mix of essential oils from flowers and herbs, minus the chlorine bleach, ammonia, petroleum distillates, parabens, phosphates or phthalates that our skin doesn’t need. If you’re trying to go greener, without sacrificing quality of fresh laundry, check this out.
