Haven on Earth

April 24, 2012

The warmer weather has me throwing open my windows, breathing in the crisp, fresh air, and planning my spring cleaning. Even though this past winter was a tad warm, my house was still closed up, and everything could use a good airing out, freshening up, and a sparkling surface.

The way I attack spring cleaning now is totally different than it was a few years ago. In the past, I’d go to the store and throw whatever cleaning products looked the strongest into my basket without thinking about what they were made from or what sort of fumes my family would be breathing in after my whirlwind scrubbing session. Now, I’m aware that harsh chemicals might kill a few germs, but repeated exposure to them could do much more harm to my family than catching a cold from some lingering germs. So, I’m very selective about my cleaning products, and I’ve found a brand I love.

Haven.com  creates home care products that are made from organic ingredients, and their cleaning products have multi-uses. That means I can clean more of my home with fewer products. This spring, I’m excited to use Haven’s Air & Linen Spray. Linen just screams spring, doesn’t it? The spray naturally neutralizes odors, leaves a fresh scent, and it kills germs in the air and on surfaces without nasty, harmful chemicals. Along with a handful of their other products, the Air & Linen Spray is going to make my home smell heavenly, its surfaces sparkle, and any lingering germs from the winter wave bye-bye.

Haven’s products are all refillable so you after your initial investment in the products and their packaging, you’ll save money and reduce your plastic consumption since the refills contain less plastic than the starter bottles (which are made from 100% recycled plastic to start with). Love it! Haven home care products are handcrafted in Brooklyn, New York, and they have some serious sustainability and stewardship cred. You know me. I love to support other small businesses that share my passion for natural, sustainably packaged products, and Haven is a company that definitely shares my passions.

What are you sitting there for? Get spring cleaning, girlfriends!
