Over the past couple of years we have made lots of eco-friendly changes in our home and try and live as much as a zero waste lifestyle as we can. From reusable sanitary products to refillable jars and bottles - we are trying very hard.
Here are some of my favourite eco-friendly products for the home:

The ecojiko cellulose sponge scourers are great for your pots and pans, as well as the earth. These multi-purpose cellulose and sisal sponges are super absorbent and can handle scrubbing pans just as well as plastic scourers. One softer side is suitable for wiping work surfaces and plates, where as the more abrasive side is ideal for scrubbing pans, cleaning floors, sinks and baths.

Because of their reclaimed nature all patterns and colours will vary, but this just makes each one even more unique and special.
