Whether the winter has got your utility bills too high or you're just itching for a budget that allows more play money, Fuller Brush has some green solutions that can cut your monthly budget and be environmentally sustainable for your household.
These are some of our suggestions for going Green:
We suggest switching from old or inefficient vacuum cleaners. Older, regular sized, vacuum cleaners use between 500 to 3000 watts of energy. Our alternative: switch to an energy-saving carpet sweeper that is multi-functional to fit various surfaces and lifestyles. The Electrostatic Carpet Sweeper
is a quiet, highly versatile and lightweight surface cleaner that uses a natural bristle rotor brush to pick up everything from dust to glass. This cordless and bagless sweeper is designed to save you time and money on your monthly utility bill.
Another thing that we feel passionately about is spending hundreds of dollars a year on wasteful paper towels. Our alternative is to switch to washable, reusable towels. Reusable cloths and rags obviously have a longer life cycle than paper towels, but they also cover more surface area per use than the average paper towel roll. We’ve taken wash cloths a step further with our Reusable & Compostable Microfiber Cloths.
Think sustainable, handmade and multi-functional.
Whatever you do, don't buy a cheap toilet brush. You might think that it will save you money, but buying a poorly made product can actually hurt your wallet in the long run. More toilet brushes = more money. Less toilet brushes: more money in your pocket.
The best solution is to invest in long-lasting supplies
. Let's throw out the brushes that harbor bacteria or are poorly made and think chemical-resistant ThermoPlastic Rubber that is resilient against bacteria growth.
A few more ideas worth mentioning for your go green adventure are to dry clothes faster and save time and energy all while saving on your energy bill easily with a dryer vent brush
. Last but not least, consider the earth when you're lint rolling your pup's hair and instead switch to a reusable option. Our fave is clearly the Ultimate Hair & Lint Remover Brush
Durable, long lasting options for keeping your home green don't have to break the bank with these affordable options from Fuller.
