In honor of Earth Day, we’re determined to start going a little more natural with our home and beauty products. Think about it: the products we use in our day-to-day routine–the countless spritzes, sprays, scrubs and shampoos–have to go somewhere, right? Since this planet is the only one we got, we’re deciding to show some love by going a little greener.
What green products win blue ribbons in our home and beauty arsenals? See if we have any of your eco-friendly favorites below.
Mrs. Meyer’s has an impressive line of wonderfully natural cleaning products, but we’re particularly partial to their Multi-Surface Everyday Cleaner (hello, Lavender Mint!). Ditch the chemical scent for essential oils and enjoy a phosphate-free cleaner that works on (almost) anything!
With citrus and grapefruit seed extracts, Biokleen Laundry Liquid smells wonderful and works wonders too. No artificial fragrance, colors or preservatives make this an excellent choice for the most delicate loads to the toughest.
Break up with the harsh chemicals of ordinary dish soaps and say hello to the plant-derived and eco-friendly formula of Eco-Me! This soap is great on cutting through grease without taking a huge toll on your hands or the environment.
Shall we wax poetic on the wonders of Acure hair products? Sulfate- and paraben-free, salon quality, natural and organic ingredients, and with a scent sent from heaven, this shampoo is no newbie in our bathroom arsenal.
Herbal Choice Organic Hairspray ticks all the boxes: totally organic, cruelty-free, eco-friendly packaging, free of harmful chemicals, fragrances and dyes, and to top it off–it works great too.
Whiten, brighten, and clean without irritating chemicals! Free of preservatives, artificial colors, sweeteners and gluten, JASON toothpaste is easy to get behind.

Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm gives your lips the perfect touch of color without the effort. Made with coconut oil, shea butter, beeswax, and more, this lipbalm is as hydrating as it is beautiful.
You know the drill: no harsh chemicals, synthetic preservatives, parabens, and dyes. Get seriously fabulous lashes without stressing about the bad stuff. Plus, 70% of the total ingredients are from organic farming.
This eyeliner switches out synthetic dyes for richly pigmented, crushed, micronized black tea leaves. No artificial fragrances or chemical preservatives make it an excellent choice for sensitive and non-sensitive eyes alike.
