We have been working hard to live in a more eco-friendly home in an effort to protect the health of our family and the planet. We try to conserve in as many areas as possible and have made the switch from plastics to glass and use recyclable materials whenever possible. Here are 8 tips for an eco-friendly home that you can begin to implement today in order to live a healthier and less wasteful life.

1. Saving water in your home not only helps the environment, but also helps your water bill. Only use water to get wet and rinse off for showers, make sure dishwashers and washing machines are completely full before running and turn on during off peak hours to lower your water and energy bill. Make sure any leaky faucets are fixed as well.

2. Switch your household cleaners staying away from fragrance laden ones. It reduces air pollution in and outdoors while minimizing exposure to chemicals and allergy triggers that can cause harm to your health.

3. Unplug! When you have your blow dryer, phone chargers and TV’s plugged in they’re sucking energy out of your home and money out of your wallet.

4. Create a recycling trash bin in your home. Check your what you can and can’t recycle in your town, but generally glass, paper goods, metal cans and plastic bottles are on the list.

5. Compost! Instead of tossing out egg shells, vegetable scraps, old newspaper or coffee grinds, create a bin in your kitchen to place everything and then compost everything to make rich soil to help your garden and yard grow.

6. Adjust your thermostat. During the winter turn it to 55 degrees when you’re away and 68 degrees when you’re home. Making sure your home is properly insulated will help keep heat in as well. In the summer use shades to keep heat in during the winter and out during the summer. Add window screens to let fresh air in during the summer.

7. Keep your freezer full rather then empty to run more efficiently.

8. Remove your shoes at the door. By taking off your shoes you keep pollutants, chemicals, pesticides, dirt and dust outside the home and not tracked all over your home.

9. Used recycled paper products and trash bags. These get used often and are always thrown away. Switching to recycled products like the Seventh Generation Paper Towels and Toilet Paper can reduce the environmental impact of these essential products.

      Have you tried real wool socks? Real wall is the best way to keep warm and dry. It wicks away moisture and lets your skin grieve at the same time keeping it very very warm. I highly recommend real wool socks and sweaters!

    Love #8! We just moved into a new home almost 2 weeks ago, and had to have new carpet installed in 3 rooms. I told our 4 children that we had to start a new rule to keep the dirt and grime out of our carpet and to keep it looking nice. so far it’s going great. Sure hope I can get company to follow suit.

    We do a lot to live eco friendly like buying toys as much as possible that are from companies that are B corp certified or eco/sustainable focused like Under the Nile. We make cleaning products using distilled white vinegar and baking soda, recycle, buy from the farm nearby and farmers markets, and use bath and health products that re eco focused like method, mrs meyers, seventh generation, dapple, babyganics, hoest and others. Even pur toothbrushes are eco friendly made from recycled materials (smile).

    I love the first tip, saving water is an absolute must for my family and I, especially here in California. This year the drought hasn’t gotten the best of us. I honestly wish the government would give us a tax break for the amount of water we save. When my son bathes in his minature tub. I reuse his bathing water for plants and submerge dishes in it to get most of the grime off. I use water as if I lived in a third world country. I limit myself in all that I do. I’ve given up shampoo to create less shower time, I’ll hand wash clothes and hang dry. I’ll reserve the gray water for plants and cleaning the car. The water is still good because I don’t use any chemical products. My household is mainly method brands, seventh generation and babyganics. I recommend we all do the same !

    We recycle everything we can! We weened ourselves off plastic altogether. We cloth diaper. We compost, grow veggies in the greenhouse, gather and preserve edibles from our 25 acre property, We recently bought a hybrid electric car, and we are looking into a home/farm sized windmill for electricity.

    I LOVE SEVENTH GENERATION. 😉 it’s the main brand I use for household products. The disinfectant spray is awesome. It really kills germs and it’s non toxic and eco friendly. The other thing we are doing to help the earth, and something that is very overlooked, is cutting back on meat and dairy!! :)

  111. Rachel Eidson

    I know this is a long shot, but I hope I win. This would be a great way to try some Seventh Generation products. Congrats to whomever does end up winning.

    We use cold water to wash our laundry. Research shows washing in warm water is no more effective at cleaning or removing stains.

  113. Misty Swearingen

    November 18, 2015 at 7:11 pm

    We are switching to using all home made cleaners made with baking soda and vinegar! And I add essential oils for a lovely fragrance!

    I love the unplug tip! That would be a huge money saver for us since we leave unused things plugged in and it really is a no brained to do it. We are a family of 6, we just had twins July 1, 2015 and honestly anything we can do to save money in the long run will be awesome. I have noticed the seventh generation more in stores when I go where as before I didn’t. Will definitely start using more eco friendly things just for the safety of all four of my kids. It is never too late to start. Thank you for the wonderful tips!

    My daughter “makes something out of this” with absolutely every empty package, wrapper, and can. Toilet paper rolls are a particularly valuable treasure and every time we polish off a roll, she claims the cardboard shouting “a new telescope!!!”. Reuse, reduce, recycle y’all!

    When hosting eating events fill a cooler with hot, soapy water. Everything goes in it to soak. Most dishes can then be gently wiped, rinsed and need no further cleaning. We then load them in the dishwasher to drip dry.

    I never really thought about it before but taking off your shoes at the door is a great idea. I’ve always recycled, and left my thermostat usually down to about 67. I sleep better when its cool. I’ve always waited on a full load in a dishwasher before I ran it, if at all. Same goes for laundry, I wait for a full load.

  188. vicky

    November 18, 2015 at 4:23 pm

    Everything that can be reusable in our house — lunch/snack bags, shopping bags, etc., is! When we have to use something that gets tossed, we try first to recycle it and we purchase consciously made things (Seventh Generation products are our favorite!) that biodegrade like unbleached, recycled paper towels and recycled garbage bags. We also make most of our own house cleaners out of natural ingredients like vinegar and essential oils. When we need something stronger, we first turn to Seventh Generation cleaning products — love their toilet cleaner and biodegradable wipes!

  215. Sue

    We have been using Seventh Generation baby wipes and diapers for 4+ years now. We love them. Whenever I’ve run out and gotten another brand, I hate them! Nothing compares to the awesome power of the SG wipe. I wish they were standard issue in every public restroom.

    We use Seventh Generation cleaning products in our home, minimize water use, use chlorine-free diapers and fragrance free lotions and body wash, recycle and use reusable bags at the store. The tip that is new to me is keeping your freezer full to help it run efficiently. I would love to win this since we love Seventh Generation products in our home!

  231. Anne

    eco the only way

  233. D

    November 18, 2015 at 4:09 pm

    One way I promote an eco-friendly home is by making sure to rotate the fresh fruits and vegetables in my fridge as well as the canned or dry goods in my cabinet. This way, the new stuff goes to the back and the old stuff can get used up instead of it reaching its expiration date and having to be thrown out, which may result if the old products are shoved aside.

  234. Maya

    November 18, 2015 at 4:08 pm

    We switched to eco friendly cleaning products few years ago. It’s nice to see the product line expending.

  235. Jeannie W

    November 18, 2015 at 4:08 pm

    my daughter is having her first baby and was going to use cloth diapers. I think that the seventh generation diapers and other products would be a better choice for them. I didn’t know that there was such a thing or I would have used them with my youngest son. It sounds awesome. I have use the kitchen cleaning spray and the non-clorine., they work great.

    We try to follow the tip about unplugging items and chargers. Another one I have is that instead of pouring out glasses of water we don’t finish, we pour them into our watering can and use it to water the houseplants.

  263. Mike O.

    We use our reusable canvas bags while out grocery shopping, We love using natural cleaning products such as Seventh Generstion and homemade vinegar based cleaners. We take our shoes off at the front door, we try to always buy organic and non GMO foods/products, we use natural unbleached diapers and wipes. We enjoy being an eco friendly family and making our planet a safer place for the ones we love. Together we can make a change and make a difference in generations to come.

    Trying to teach my daughter how to live eco-friendly…My parents always taught us to leave a place cleaner than you found it, so she will help pick up trash when we visit the playground. We also turn off lights, don’t leave the water running, recycle, and use reusable bags when shopping.

    I open all the windows to air out our home several times a year, not just in the warmer months. The cold air feels good and fresh in the winter, and I’m convinced it helps clear out any germs that may have crept their way in on our shoes, clothes, or guests!

    Favorite eco tip? Shopping at the local farmer’s market. I get to know my neighbors and know that my produce is fresher because it was picked sooner, stored for less time, and produced less carbon emissions because it didn’t travel as far!

  288. Laura Austin

    I like tips 2 and 5. We use a lot of vinegar and baking soda (sometimes together, usually separately) for cleaning. It works well, has a nice smell, I don’t have to worry about it being “safe” and it’s better for the environment! Also, we have started composting and it is going pretty well so far.

    #2 is one I haven’t thought of believe it or not. I will begin teaching my family these techniques (washing hands, brushing teeth, ….)

    #10. I’ve been switching to essential oils and vinegar base for cleaners.

    I love clean living and learn something new everyday! I bleach my clothes with borax, lemon and peroxide, reuse plastic water bottles so the kiddos can paint and plant in them, and glass when we travel, wash my dishes the old fashioned way in a tub of water instead of in the dishwasher, and pick up trash in our forest and oceans whenever I walk on or in them. My list can definitely go on and on… I haven’t had the pleasure of trying seventh generation products but would love the opportunity.

I made the switch about a year ago after visiting a friend and noticed all of her cleaning products were eco-friendly. I thought to myself why am I using such harsh chemicals in my home?

    It is always surprising to me how many people don’t open their windows and they just always put their AC on, even on cooler summer days. Not only does this reduce energy costs, but opening a window lets in fresh air and circulates toxins out of your home.

    I have a large flip top glass jar that I put colorful wash rags designated for cleaning in a jar filled with vinegar, distilled water, essential oils and occasionally castile soap. I leave the jar in the bathrooms so I can clean down the bathroom every other night or whenever necessary. With a kid learning to use the potty, things can get messy.

    you get points that equal $$ to donate to any charity of your choice it’s a win win on all accounts. You provide the box and they provide a free shipping label

    We are huge recyclers! Anything that isn’t thrown into our huge recycling bin is put in the kids’ craft cabinet–and that includes A LOT! We also make fewer trips in our car by plotting out our errands and trips. And we never buy individual servings of products; we buy in bulk and ration out servings in our glass containers and reusable sandwich wrap bags. We shop resale, and I consign my kids’ clothes and toys. Also, it helps to make your own cleaners and shampoos! It’s all just a lifestyle for us!
