Get Fresh – 3 Eco Swaps to Help Clean Up Your Routine
It’s officially Spring Clean season – the perfect time to take a look at the space around you, as well as your routine, and see if there are any areas that need a little freshen up. Seeing as it’s also B Corp Month (this time of year really is like Christmas for us here at Homething HQ) we thought it would be the perfect time to chat about three B Corps that will help give your self care routine a revamp, without making a mess of the planet
With warmer weather and lighter evenings on the horizon, we’re all ready for a mood boost - and a clean and tidy home can help declutter your mind. Clinical studies have found that the act of cleaning can have a calming effect on the body, similar to meditation - so giving your house a once over really is an act of self care.
Homethings are on a mission to clean up cleaning with tabletised, refillable, non-toxic cleaning products. They’re better for you, with no harsh chemicals hanging around, and the planet, with no single-use plastic or shipping heavy water around the planet.

Whether you're the owner of a uterus, or have some uterus-owning people in your life - having a stock of period care products around is never a bad thing. Or even better, having a box of plastic-free, organic cotton tampons in a colourful box you’ll want on display can really help to add a little bit of joy into a potentially not-so-joyous part of your (or your friends’) self care routine. And with 200,000 tonnes of waste produced by the period-care industry each year, you’ll also be doing the planet a favour.
Check out TOTM for ethical, sustainable period care products. No plastic packaging, no plastic applicators, no harmful chemicals and zero-waste reusables.
