In celebration of Earth Week, we're striving towards creating a more sustainable, conscious lifestyle. That's why we love and trust brands like Lemyn Organics, Soganics and Common Ground for all of our cleaning needs. Better for you, and better for the planet - designed to naturally wash away messes and germs while still remaining safe for your skin, your loved ones and the environment.
The Lemyn Organics, Soganics and Common Ground collections all feature 100% vegan, plant-based formulas that are certified cruelty-free and are sustainably sourced. Check out our top staff picks for maintaining an eco-friendly clean home:
1. Lemyn Organics Hand Sanitizer
Lemyn is USDA Certified Biobased, meaning that the formula is made of 100% renewable biological ingredients. By using high-quality, plant-based alcohol instead of petroleum-derived ingredients, Lemyn helps reduce the need for mining and burning fossil fuels - ultimately helping to avoid the release of new carbon in the atmosphere, and fight climate change. Contrary to popular belief, organic doesn't have to mean less effective! Lemyn's completely clean, no-rinse, residue-free and medical-grade formula exceeds CDC and FDA guidelines for effectively killing germs.
Aside from killing 99.9999% of germs (the highest efficacy on the market compared to 99.99% for leading competitors), Lemyn is also clinically proven safe for sensitive skin, dermatologist-tested and 3rd party tested for impurities prior to bottling. You may have heard about the recent recalls on other hand sanitizers on the market due to unapproved, unsafe amounts of carcinogens. Lemyn goes through a rigorous process of testing several times for purity - that means no benzene, no methanol and no 1-propanol - toxin free! It's also free from dyes, synthetic fragrances and over 1,500 other harmful ingredients commonly found in hand sanitizers and skincare products - perfect for sensitive skin and ideal for daily use.
On top of that, opting for a cleaner skincare product like Lemyn helps to reduce our carbon footprint. Did you know that most hand sanitizers are made with petroleum-derived ingredients? Lemyn's 70% alcohol formula is all-natural and plant-based, helping to reduce the unnecessary release of carbon into our atmosphere - more on that here.
For our furry-friend lovers out there, Lemyn is also PETA-Approved cruelty-free and vegan. Safe, effective, organic - Take waterless washing to a new level with Lemyn Organics - explore the collection here!
2. Soganics Windows & Glass Cleaner
If you've been purchasing natural cleaning products for a while now, you've probably noticed that some products just seem to fall short of expectations. The reason for this is because "regular" cleaning products contain harsh chemicals such as synthetic solvents and surfactants that clean fast and get the job done. Problem is, taking shortcuts typically always results in some more negative outcomes. Cleaning products that contain these surfactants are loaded with toxic chemicals - and can be harmful to your family (including pets)! Great news is, plant-based natural cleaners have come a long way in the past few years, and Soganics has figured out the perfect formula of high quality, natural solvents. You'll be amazed (and relieved!) at how clean your windows look with a natural product made with plant-based ingredients like coconut and potato!
Soganics' Window Cleaner delivers a streak-free finish to glass surfaces with anti-fogging technology- all while boasting a plant-based and non-toxic formula. Safely and effectively cleans glass, mirrors, chrome, stainless steel, glazed tiles, laminates and countertops.

3. Common Ground Foaming Hand Wash
As light as the clouds, Common Grounds' Foaming Hand Wash washes away stress (and germs) while maintaining skin's natural moisture with their signature avocado oil and pH optimized formula. Hands won't dry out, even after multiple washes!
Crafted with a botanical blend of tea tree oil, nut meg kernel oil and sweet orange peel extract, you'll be feeling super fresh all day long. Specifically designed for constant use (and if you're anything like us, you're probably cleaning constantly and could use that extra boost of moisture)! Vegan, cruelty-free, and sourced from nature - comes in 100% sustainably-sourced recycled plastic.

Specially formulated to power through grease and grime, plus it smells fresh and clean! Soganics' plant-based formula makes quick work of even the toughest messes, all without harmful chemicals. Check out this review from one of our customers:
"I used the Kitchen Cleaner on an extremely dirty microwave and it easily took care of the baked-on particles. IT's tough on the soil but has a fresh scent and no chemical odor. The bonus was how efficiently it removed greasy residue and left the stainless steel shiny...no need for two product usually required to finish this job." - Susan, Chicago
