I know people have a love/hate relationship with Amazon and I get it. I understand why some people are against it and I support you doing you!
One thing I have found beneficial about Amazon is that it is able to get the products of small businesses into the hands of consumers who may not be able to purchase it elsewhere. Going direct through the brand is the best way to support them, however sometimes they don't, or can't, sell on their website and they use Amazon as their means of distribution.
Whether or not you decide to buy any of these products on Amazon or direct through the company where you can, I wanted to get them on your radar! I've been working hard to make my home more eco-friendly and be more mindful of my waste, the planet, etc., and if you are too, then I invite you to read on and check out these 17 amazing eco-friendly products!

Swedish Dishcloths are considered the “premium standard” in Scandinavia. Unlike standard North American 100% cotton kitchen towels, Swedish dishcloths are a versatile and premium towel that can be used in a variety of applications ranging from your kitchen to your car and even outdoors.
