[Vegan] Plant Based Cleaner Run Down

March 30, 2022

A while ago we wrote an article about “plant-based” cleaners. This article is part 2 in the green cleaning series. Many consumers today are fed up with chemicals in everything we touch today. This consumer demand has fueled a rapidly growing industry of “plant-based” cleaners. Here’s what we found for plant-based cleaners:

Vitacost makes a vast array of products focused on being green and reducing the need for chemicals in everything. They have the “Clean Collection.” 

This collection consists of a glass cleaner, laundry soap, all-purpose cleaner and a dish soap. Beyond the plant based products, they also have products that are BPA free, Fragrance-free and Paraben Free. 

Better Life

Better life makes a variety of plant based cleaners. Understanding that many harsh chemical cleaners leave a residue on the floor that can potentially harm their children and pet-inspired them to create these products. They leave out all the elements that would trigger allergies like dyes, perfumes, parabens, ammonia, bleach, chlorine, ethers, chloroform and many other harsh chemicals. What they do put in are 100% plant based elements like coconut, corn, and soap bark. The scents come from natural botanical extracts. In the end what you get are great products that are safe around the home and excellent for cleaning. 


These are people that understand the typical everyday person that has to clean around the home. They are dedicated to creating naturally-derived products that also look beautiful. This company has a unique approach to packaging because most cleaning products have boring and sterile packaging. While they are not completely plant based, they are 98% plant based and are very focused on creating products that are biodegradable.
