Nellie’s One Soap, for people, pets
and decided to bring it to the IH+HS
this year. The towels, which come in a
roll of 20, are made from organic and
sustainable bamboo from China, she
says. Because the towels are reusable
and machine-washable up to 25 times,
one roll can replace 60 rolls of conventional paper towels, she says.
For those still looking to use cleansers,
companies such as Batten Industries,
which produces the Nellie’s line, offer
soaps and dishwasher and laundry
detergents that are all-natural, phos-phate-free and hypoallergenic. Jackie
Chura from Nellie’s says products such
as the company’s One Soap is safe
to use on people and pets, as well as
dishes and cars. While there are some
scented products in the line, Nellie’s
also understands that some customers
are sensitive, so it offers fragrance-free
One Soap and laundry detergent as well.
The company is probably best known
for its Dryer Balls, says Chura, which
have been on the market for eight
years. The balls come in a PVC-free
version and, for those who like fragrance, there are four all-natural scent
sticks that can be added.
It’s not surprising to see these companies and many others offering
green and sustainable products for the
kitchen and home. Studies over the
past few years continue to point to a
growing interest in green products by
consumers and corporations’ ongoing
focus on environmental and social
